Do you have friends who send you lots of jokes via the email system? We do. Occasionally I will send them on to other people who send me jokes, but really I find them a bit of a bore. They are all variations on what I have heard or seen before. I can safely say this, as the only friend who reads this, does not send us jokes. It is to her credit, although I have sent her the odd one.
But jokes aside, there are more important things in life, like the death of this chappie. Here is a cut from his obituary.
Larry LaPrise Dead at 93
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 Hokie 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.
