As Facebook rolled out about 14 or so years ago, I scanned a ton of pictures of my kids and friends and cool things I have done throughout my life to upload to the site, not only for people to see, but also for posterity. A place they would be forever in case I lost the pics or anything happened to me. I knew they would always be visible.

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.

It has now been about 37 years since it happened, and yet it is still crystal clear in my mind and will probably be there forever.

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 watched every single movie on there.

Every year when spring break rolls around, I think back to a pivotal moment in my life that I am most sure if my mother had known about, I would still be grounded.

My mother and I used to love to go to the movies and around Christmas of 1990, we went and saw “Godfather III.” Mom kept talking about seeing the first one when it came out back in 1972 in the theaters. She said it was the likes of something no one had ever seen on the big screen before and an experience that was very hard to describe. Every time it would come on the small screen she would always remind me what it was like to see it where it belonged, in the theater.

I am a huge Zig Ziglar fan. If you don’t know who he is, Google him. He’s a fascinating man who has inspired millions to get up off the couch and live a better life. He also said this, which is the basis for this story: “The first step in solving a problem is to recognize that it does exist.”

Over Christmas, I had the honor being the emcee at an event in Nashville. As I was leaving, I was stopped by a lady who said, “You were great up there and I almost emailed you to see if you would emcee our event, but I didn’t.”

One of my favorite things to do while watching a movie is to pull out my phone and hit my app for IMDB. It is one of the best apps and websites you will ever come across. Every single movie, actor, director, etc., is all listed there with some incredible information you might not have ever known.

The phrase, “he was larger than life,” gets used quite a bit. Sometimes it can lose its punch when describing someone because we hear it so much. When I say that Ralph Emery was larger than life, it means what it says.

When my daughter was born in October of 1998, I remember someone telling me, “You will spend the first year trying to get her to walk, then you will spend every year after that trying to get her to sit down.”

Believe it or not it used to snow a lot in Nashville when I was growing up. The snow that fell on Thursday, Jan. 6, was something we got every year, sometimes two, three or four times, and it was beautiful.

This New Year’s resolution is so easy it is almost too hard to believe. It costs nothing, you don’t have to go anywhere and it will make you feel so much better.

I have written before that after my mother passed away in the summer of 2011, I wanted to cancel our Christmas celebrations. After all, the one person you thought would live forever was now gone, so to me, what was the purpose?

Recently, I was tagged in a picture on Instagram and, naturally, was intrigued. So I went and clicked on the pic but did not recognize the name and the person didn’t look familiar.

It has driven my son crazy ever since he was old enough to understand things in life.
