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,

A Little Rearranging Going On In Granbury's (Texas) Town Square

Posted 01-02-2022 at 06:52 PM by case44


While y'all are still pondering what to do with your New Year's resolutions , Ol' Case decided to trudge over to Granbury, Texas, one day after his big bowl of obligatory New Year's black-eyed peas.

Today, I had to scratch a German food itch and took my Shark to Granbury's Town Square and to a place called Ketzler's. Now, there's also some shuffling, too. Ketzler's has relocated one block over to the spot where Linda's Southern Kitchen apparently used to occupy. Not sure the reason for that closure, but the folks who operate Ketzler's made one move and is initiating the other, since they still have their old property on Pearl Street. A new seafood restaurant, The Fisherman's Corner, will soon open in the former Ketzler's location.

As for my time at Ketzler's, I had a great meal there today. My server, Stephanie, had one of the most sparkling personalities to liven up the experience. The appetizers were the best of the wurst. Once my brats and kraut were done, I partook of the jager schnitzel, pan-fried potatoes, mixed cauliflower/carrot/broccoli medley, and spaetzle. No beer this time, just iced tea. And dessert was some warm apple strudel. They didn't have potato pancakes available today, and I was really craving theirs. They said it was supply chain issues (Sound familiar?? ). All in all, my time in the Town Square was memorable, if not all-too-brief. In addition to the Ketzler's switcheroo, the legendary Nutt House Hotel is closed for renovations.

Because it was so dang cold outside, the usual crowds did not appear much this time in Granbury, and that's rare for them. I predict my next visit there, that situation will certainly change, but I'm hoping that Stephanie will be my server again at Ketzler's.

    Is Granbury known as a weekend day trip destination spot? The reason I mentioned Hico in another blog entry as having growth potential was it's neat little downtown and "day trip distance" from DFW, Waco and Fort Hood. Similar to Fredericksburg for Austin and SA.

    I wish I would have spent more time day tripping when I lived down there.

    Mo, Granbury gets a good amount of visitors each week. You can make that place in less than an hour from Fort Worth. Many of their restaurants have their own websites, but some are not open on Mondays.

    Next time down this way, do go check that out.
