On This Day In Dino-history: September 1, 1949

Hey pallies, likes on this day, September 1, 1949, the weddin' bells did chime for our most beloved Dino and his beauty queen Miss Jeanne Biegger. Dino and Miss Jeanne, wife numero duo, tied the knot at the home of Herman Hover's pad.

As we devotedly remember this day of absolute bliss for our Dino, ilovedinomartin shares with you a post that Deanager Catie shared at her tumblr blog, "They always look better at night..," on this day of Dino-significance last year. We shared it here last September 1 and thought we'd share it 'gain for all who may have missed it the first time 'round.

Our Catie combines an outstandin' weddin' pix of the beau-ti-ful couple with some prose scribed by Mr. Jerry Lewis from his magnificant Dino-bio, "Dean and Me: A Love Story."

Just grooves to be likes readin' these kind of glorious Dino-details....and these reflections from Mr. Lewis notin' 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 nouveau hipsters to the deep knowledge and total total adulation of our great man. Dino-rememberin', DMP btw pallies, if you clicks on the tag of this Dino-gram you will be taken to the Dean Martin essential pad for all those who are deeply devoted to our Dino!

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.
