Gee, and on a day when I was feeling a bit LESS like an "oldtimer" ! Congratulations, first, on having raised such a capable and enterprizing son --- it soudns like you've done a really good job there !

And as lady nina points out, you can even consider a pair of webcams for contact.
And, after all the fine gifts you have given him so far, it's time to give one of the biggest gifts --- freedom and independence. And this gift will mean that you'll never lose him, wherever he is.
