Hunky Dory

On the way to Willowbrook this morning, Kelly asked what hunky dory means. I told her, but said I didn't know where it came from.

"I think it comes from England," she said.

I didn't really have any insight into that, and it turns out it's probably wrong, but I said maybe.

"I think they used it on ships," she said. "Like, 'Everything is hunky dory, Captain!'"
