“Good is Better Than Evil, Because It’s Nicer”

Today my father turned 85 years old.  That’s 31,025 days of life. Born in 1927, his life is like a history book.   He blew out his candles and I asked him if he had any words to say. After multiple “thank-you’s” he recited an aphorism from Al Capp’s Li’l Abner comic strip.  Something that he’s been telling me my entire life: “good is better than evil, because it’s nicer”. 

Here’s to many more good days Pops.



  1. This is sweet. 🙂
