As the school year draws to a close I am reminded of the Hokey Pokey song that both my kids had to learn and perform several times over the years.
I was sent an email a few years ago and my warped sense of humor thought it was quite funny.
Some of you may not share my humor so - Sorry!
With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it's 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 age 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.
