Jerry Lee Lewis, Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On

Lee Lewis, of course, was a great rock n roll pianist. He also married his 13-year-old cousin, then divorced her thirteen years later. Neither of which facts have anything to do with 13 being an unlucky number, but, let’s face it, they hardly help. Anyway, the point is that Jerry Lee Lewis is 74 today, so we thought we’d get him a gift. Hence, we all did an impression of Goose from Top Gun doing an impression of Jerry Lee Lewis, whilst others played the parts of Meg Ryan and Tom Cruise looking on, plus we discussed present ideas. And it wasn’t long before it boiled down to a toss up between some sweet and sour pork balls with extra chillies, or a great Jerry Lee Lewis number from 1957. In the end we got him both. Happy etc…!
