Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

There's Something Concretely Wrong With The Parking Lot Repairs

Look, sports fans, when you have to coordinate repairs around one's apartment complex, you have to have a plan, right? Well, those with the apartment working with the contractors overlooked something in regards to navigable entrances.

Just so y'all know, they've initiated concrete repairs on the parking lots and the sidewalks, an undertaking which will likely take a couple of weeks. Inconveniences galore. I say that because, at this time, an entire south section...

I-69 Update: Houston's Southwest Outskirts Signed And Nearly Signed

Posted 09-28-2022 at 09:10 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

On my last trip to Houston not very long ago, one of the priorities for me was to take a look at the progress of numerous construction projects converting U.S. Highway 59 to Interstate 69. A specific stretch just southwest of Rosenberg was spotted with new signage and completion of grade separation in a three-mile segment since I last visited the area thirteen months prior to it.

And to the southwest of Spur 10, a recently-constructed stretch from there to the middle of Kendleton...

Nothing's Changed In The Automotive Service Business

Posted 09-26-2022 at 05:59 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Ask almost any consumer, and you'll see that people must sometimes deal with B.S. every time one wants honesty. I took my Toyota in today to my dealer and their service area just loves playing musical chairs from one visit to the next. No two service advisors will ever be the same.

And this afternoon's visit (as I write this chickenscratch, of course) saw me needing to get only two air filters replaced. That's all I requested. Well, my advisor for today's visit...

Thinking About A Specific Lady Tonight

Posted 09-24-2022 at 10:34 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 09-25-2022 at 09:32 PM by case44

Perhaps I don't know why, but every now and then, I meet people at church or some other place in the sphere of life and then I never see them again.

Such happens to be the case with one lady who I once knew about fifteen years ago at a nearby church in our community. Sometimes, we did social things, too. That's where we got to know one another. She is actually a year older than I, and also someone who knew an ex-classmate of mine. She even dated him for a time....

A Texas Legend Reminds This Writer Of Nostalgic Grub

Posted 09-22-2022 at 07:53 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Every time I go to Whataburger, I am reminded of how things were before I even tried this great Texas fast food mecca. There was a time when, even in a place like Grand Prairie, Texas, a hamburger so good could only come from Big Top Burger.

I just gave it away, sports fans, but that's what it was.

Once upon a yesterday, this writer actually got to enjoy a cheeseburger and fries not much different from what I'd eventually get elsewhere. Big Top...
