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 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.

Come on now. You know it's funny.

One of my very best friends has a life motto:
"What if the Hokey Pokey is what it is all about?'
I sent her this.
She swore at me -- laughing.
