COZ DORIS LUKE PUSH DOWN 90

By  EWALT  AINSWORTH                10 27 2013

BETTER BELLY BURST THAN BITTLE SPOIL. Ten massive years ago almost to the date JEGGAE  rocked the hall with his  inspirational and  perspirational  spiritual ballads and anthems.  Last Sunday the old-mass was discontinued at day clean.  The fare of foods and beverages and the speeches were more than enough.   Dosai was high on the menu list.  The only thing short was panuse from  the cow farm owned by the  Luke family. Cousin Doris Luke was 80 then.  Now that she is 90 the People’s Republic of Victoria and all attendant suburbs made it a clap-hand something.
The people spoke in scripture and songs giving credence to a woman who is not about to give up and or give in.  ASOMELYKAM.
