Father's Day Memories

Over the Father's Day weekend I heard a song that brought back memories. The tail end of the song, "The Hokey Pokey" was playing on a television show while I was channel surfing.
While waiting for the golf tournament to begin I decided to do a little Internet research on the song and discovered that a man from Idaho, Larry LaPrise, wrote the tune way back in the 1940's. LaPrise died at the ripe old age of 93 back in 1996. Apparently as preparations began for his funeral things got pretty traumatic for his family. While trying to get him situated in the coffin in front of all his loved ones, the funeral director put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
