Subject: FW: Sad News - - Larry LaPrise






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 that 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.







Shut up. You know it's funny!

A friend and former student of mine showed me a hand written arrangement in standard notation I had taught him back in the 80s.

I had absolutely no recollection of doing it.

It was my hand writing.

It's weird getting old.

What a great word picture! My wife and I both laughed out loud.
