Sad News

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93.

The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the
coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

Oh . . . Go on! You know it's funny.

Okay, that was funny. I wonder what kind of guy writes a song like "Hokey-Pokey"? He was either very laid back or seriously self-medicating.
