Generally my eyes narrow, my disposition sours and the dial on my grumpy-old- manometer registers about 7 when I see a new store in Asheville selling any Life is Good paraphernalia. Advertising to the world in cartoon format how good your life is seems distastefully smug and self satisfied. I know it’s just a harmless flag promoting an easygoing outlook, but for me its a dangerously unlucky tempting of the fates. I prefer the more measured, “Life is good… for now.”
And it is.
We haven’t watched a documentary about inequity, war or genocide in days. Our ambitious goal of eating at the Starfish Co. three times in three days has been met. Our friends and families are healthy. The beach has cured my athletes foot issue. Life is pretty good…

Happy birthday beautiful wife! Happy Fathers Day Dad and all you other diddys!
