29 years ago, in 1981, Jerry Lee Lewis had his last major Country hit with a number called 39 And Holding. The context of the song might be different, but the title is very appropriate for today, as Elise and I wer married 39 years ago, on 29 October, 1971.
Happy anniversary, De Leeuw!
Here's a bit of Chantilly lace for you (it seems that lace is the gift to give, according to the "modern list", for the 39th anniversary).
Jerry Lee sang Chantilly Lace, too, but we know it best, of course, by the Big Bopper:
Chantilly lace and a pretty face
And a pony tail hangin' down
A wiggle in the walk and a giggle in the talk
Make the world go round.
