On a sad note...

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.

I don't know who made that up, but I got it in an email from my sister-in-law. I thought it was funny enough to pass on. Maybe because, as a teacher of young children, I had to sing it about a million times.
