[Ads-l] All well

Somebody just asked me about the expression -- one they use -- 'all well' (specifically NOT 'oh well') as in: "It would be for instance if someone said 'it's raining outside so we can't go fishing.' I would respond "all well" and wouldn't be super disappointed.

DARE doesn't seem to have it. Is this something that folks are familiar with? 

Thanks,
Joe
