I'M HOKEY--and then if that's not bad enough--I'M ALSO POKEY.

I got a forwarded email a few days ago. You were supposed to number a paper to eleven and then put some numbers down, names of people, and songs. Then you scrolled down to read what your answers meant.

This person in space number three is the one you love: I had written Phil.

The song you put in number eight matches the person in number three: Come Share My Life

Number eleven tells you how you feel about life: I couldn't think of any more songs, my mind went totally blank--you can see I'm defending myself before telling you what I put--The Hokey Pokey.

So, there you have it. My personal creed. Charming.

But, the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about after all.

I'm sure there is great symbolism in there somewhere. I just haven't figured out how. But it gave me a morning laugh, that's for sure.

After a bit of a blogging hiatus, I have returned and have thoroughly enjoyed backtracking through your posts. Today is hilarious! I never do those email forward thingies, because I am afraid of what I would learn about myself!

Actually, Randy always used to say that "the Hokey Pokey" was the secret of life.

When Randy's best friend, Rich came to tell us that his kidneys were in failure, Randy looked at him very seriously and said, "I know what you have to do." Then he started singing and dancing the "Hokey Pokey" for Rich. Rich, of course just burst into laughter, but Randy was serious, so I bought him a Hokey Pokey Elmo for Christmas that year, and he used to turn it on and dance and sing with our dog Rocky--who happened to be really freaked out by the Elmo.

I could always tell when Rich was really feeling down because he would always call Randy so he could feel better.

So I think that you were definitely inspired by your Hokey Pokey Song choice. After all, "THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT" as Randy would say.

I sure love and miss that guy.
