My daughter Callie left for college today.

Her boyfriend Ryan came home to say goodbye.  He’s going to the Maine Maritime Academy.  She’s off to Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island.

As you can see I am totally … well, you can see.

Tonight I’ve decided to roast a chicken to feed my last remaining offspring, Tristan, and his cohort of wicked 16-year-old pals. And drink a six-pack of Long Trail Ale.
