Hey pallies, likes Dino-amore month may be officially past, but we can't help but keeps sharin' lotza love for our most beloved Dino here at ilovedinomartin.  So today we keeps the Dino-love flowin' with wonderfully wise words from the pen of a lovely lady who lives in Florida and tags herself "nananoyz." She describes her self as.... "I'm a semi-retired crazy person with one husband and two cats."

As you read her wise and well chosen thoughts you will learn how she recently returned to her passion for Dino while doin' a youtube vid Dino-search.  We loves! loves! loves! readin' her touchin' and truth-filled  thoughts on our King of Cool...." His charm and good looks transcend the decades."

Dean Martin and Love: I’m Somebody

February 9, 2015 

My parents were huge Dean Martin fans, so I was introduced to the music and comedy of the handsome half of the famous Martin and Lewis comedy team early on.

I’d forgotten just how appealing Dean Martin was until I went on a hunt for one of his songs, “You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You.” I hoped to find a You Tube video of him singing, so I could share it here for my Love Month theme, and I wasn’t disappointed. His charm and good looks transcend the decades.


Now the lyrics to this song always bothered me a little. I wasn’t a particularly lovable kid: taller than average, skinny, and bookish, not much to look at and even less to talk to, I was afraid, seriously afraid, that no one would ever love me. And if no one ever loved me, did that mean I was a nobody?

Then, in my typical analytical fashion I began to observe other people. There were some less attractive than me, and they’d found love. There were a few weirder than me, and they had someone. So maybe, just maybe there was hope for me.

Of course now I know I was always somebody. My parents loved me, Studly loves me, my kids and grand babies love me, but most importantly, I learned how to love myself.

Peace, Somebodies!
