Lord Love a Duck

Don't ask me why, but a catchphrase that I saw once in the mid-1960s still surfaces in my head when I'm exceptionally fortunate and escape calamity. It's "Lord love a duck and lucky me!", a line from Cordwainer Smith's sf novel The Planet Buyer. I think it means something like, "Gee, maybe things really will turn out OK!"

Of course they always do, in some sense ...
