Well, my last kid got his own apartment last weekend, My wife and I have had our first week alone in the house now. Sure is quiet now. Still have 3 dog inside with us. Kinda sad about it tho. He's 21 and has a fairly good job with CAT. Oldest is a girl (26) finishing her masters degree this year but has her own place, Son(25) living in Chicago and still has a job if that means anything for the economy. Went through a divorce 13 years ago and kept my kids so I became the chief cook and bottle washer. Re-married 8 years ago to a GREAT woman. All 3 kids consider her their mom. I guess I'm a little more emotional than most guys about them leaving the house for their own life. I know it's part of life but it's still not easy, especially for the last one. All 3 really enjoy going fishing with me. I wish them the best and happiest life. Now, I want some grandkids.
