Jerry Lee Lewis - Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On (1957)

This song seems to be the theme of the day!!! We have had several aftershocks, most of which were not felt, but one hit at 10:30 a.m. that was 4.6. It was kind of exciting at first, but if they keep getting stronger again, I might get nervous!!! They have reduced the first one from 5.4 to 5.2, so it is no longer the 'strongest' quake in Illinois history, that would be reserved for the 'Quake of '68'. We just came back from Great Grandpa's and listened to them recall their memories of that one. Grandma said she was waiting in her car while the kids were inside the church getting 'instructions' which I would assume back then that this was a more rigorous version of PSR classes today. (Visions of Nun with smacking rulers are running through my head....)

Anyhoo, this is the biggest thing to happen around here in a long time! Not since an entire family was murdered by a teenager back in 1997 have we made the news! I'd much rather make the news for something like this, that is for sure!! But it'd sure be nice if the Whole Lotta Shakin' would just shake right on outta here!!!
