On This Day In Dino-history: March 14, 1988

Hey pallies, likes just discovered that today is a very very important day in all of Dino-history, and likes I just have to do a second Dino-gram this very Dino-day to lets you all know! From probably the strangest tag blog ilovedinomartin has ever visited, "Watch How I Met Your Mother Online," comes news that it was on this very day, March 14, in 1988 that our most beloved Dino coaxed by his pallie Frank Sinatra, joined Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. for the Rat Pack "Together Again" Tour.

The first stop on the tour was Oakland, Cali. The talk was that Sinatra was tryin' to get our Dino outta his shell after the tragic death of his most beloved boypallie Dino Jr. almost a year earlier. As noted below, our Dino soon dropped out from the tour 'cause his heart was not in it. Judy Garland's daughter Liza Minnelli replaced our Dino in the act.

Hats off to the pallies at "Watch How I Met Your Mother Online" for sharin' this important Dino-date with their reads so we coulda pass it on to all you pallies here.
To view this in it's original format, likes just clicks on the tag of this here Dino-message. Dino-learnin' and Dino-growin', DMP btw pallies, also have included a vid clip featurin' footage from the first two nights of the tour...enjoys pallies!

In 1988, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dean Martin began their “Rat Pack” Reunion tour in Oakland, Calif. Sinatra had recently recovered from intestinal surgery and Davis from hip surgery. Illness soon forced Martin to drop out. Liza Minnelli was his replacement.

One the sorrows of my life was that our Dino left this reunion tour before the tour arrived here to the D.C. area. I already had tickets well in advance, of course, so Mr. AOW and I went to see Frank and Sammy. A great show, but not as great as the show would have been with our Dino in it!

I did understand why our Dino dropped out of the tour. He was grieving over the death of Dean Paul. Our Dino grieved over that loss till the day he died.

Hey pallie, likes Miss AOW, I can understand your deep sorrow at not bein' able to see our Dino in the flesh, but as you say it is very very understandable why he pulled out. Keeps lovin' our Dino!
