In 1976, my grandparents moved from their house in Hendersonville to a brand new retirement center just off of Gallatin Road in Madison near Briley Parkway. It was called Chippington Towers and stood about 12 stories tall. They lived on the ninth floor. I have very fond memories of visiting …

One time playing football I got double-teamed while on defense and they blocked me about 15 yards down the field. I remember coming to the sideline and my coach saying, “Next time you feel that happening, fall down. Make a giant pile. That makes it difficult for anyone to go through. Make it…

Recently, I ran across an old friend and he was wearing a T-shirt that read, “You Look Like You Might Need A Ride To The Train Station.” I asked what it meant and the following conversation ensued.

By now you have probably heard about the ex-girlfriend who broke up with her boyfriend but, before she did, went into his Netflix account and set up her own profile under the “name” of Settings. It took him about two years to figure out what was going on but, by then, she had probably watche…
