Hey pallies, likes 'nother extemely significant day in Dino-history is likes upon us. 'Cause likes on this first day of September in the year 1949 our most beloved Dino took beauty queen Miss Jeanne Biegger as his wife numero duo.
To celebrate this very important Dino-event, we goes to our pallie Catie's tumblr blog, "They always look better at night..," (clicks on tag of this Dino-message to goes there) where she has combined an outstandin' weddin' pix of the beautiful couple with some prose scribed by Mr. Jerry Lewis from his magnificant Dino-bio, "Dean and Me: A Love Story."
Just loves to read these kind of Dino-details....and these reflections from Mr. Lewis the extremely close relationship that our most beloved Dino had with his bestest of best pallie Jerry.
ilovedinomartin sez our thanks to Miss Catie for creatin' this Dino-memory on her tumblr account, sure to bring many of today's youthful hipsters to the knowledge and adulation of our great man. Dino-rememberin', DMP
You just got out of a marriage,” I said. “What the fuck are you rushing into another one for?”
He just stared at me, shocked that I had hit the issues on the button. I hurried to explain myself. “Forgive me, Paul.” I said. “Jeanne’s a great girl, and I think she would follow you to the ends of the earth. I know she would wait until you were ready. And there are four kids to think about.”
Dean thought for a moment. “Listen Jer,” he said. “You know me better than anyone, so what I say is between us. I do worry about my kids. But this feels so right. So strong.”
I nodded, finally understanding that he was really in love, and probably for the first time. “It’s your life, pal,” I told him. “And you have to do what’s best for you. You’ve always taken care of your kids; now it’s your turn to take care of yourself. Everything’ll fall into place.”
He threw his arms around me in a bear hug and whispered into my ear: “Thanks, Jer.”
As it turned out, Jeanne was the best thing that ever happened to Dean.
