Dear GYA, It looks like our little Megan is finally out of the house. Yup, she's beginning her freshman year of college and the wife and I just dropped her off on the campus. It was pretty easy -- we spotted a sign that read "daughter drop off" in front of a fraternity house, so we left her with those helpful young men. Anyway, now that we have an empty nest, anything good happening tonight? - Roger Mardinheimer, Porterville
