  • Sometimes, as a parent of an adult child who just moved 3000+ miles away, you worry just a little bit about whether your kid is doing o.k.

    Is he really enjoying life out there?

    Is it what he thought it would be?

    Will he make it o.k.?

    Will he maintain his sense of humor?

    And, then, you see a photo like this on his Facebook page, and say, "Uh..I think he's doing o.k." (I wonder what song he was singing into the Turkey Leg Mike?)
