.......... rubbing elbows with the likes of Dean Martin

Hey pallies, likes today through the efforts of google Dino-'lerts we shares with youse the story of 'nother pallie who spent time in the immediate presence of our most beloved Dino...somethin' that every Dino-holics woulda have loved to do.  From the annals of the L.A. Times comes the awesome article "Former wrestler Pepper Martin has endured the 'shrapnel' and is ready to share his story" scribed by Contact Reporter Miss Sara Cardine.

At age 79, Mr. Martin has scribed his autobiography  “Shrapnel of the Soul and Redemption,” with the help of his friend and publicist Miss Penny Lane.  Scriber Miss Cardine has crafted some potent prose from her interview of this "professional wrestler and, later, an actor working alongside Hollywood legends."

Likes, the point of interest for all us Dino-philes is the intriguin' intersection of Pepper's life with that of our Dino. The reference to Martin's Dino-connection is brief in words...simply what we have used as the tag of this post, "........rubbing elbows with the likes of Dean Martin," but we are totally totally thrilled that Pepper shared a swank snapshot of himself enjoyin' the powerful presence of our Dino 'long with Miss Sharon Tate.  We're guessin' that this cool candid was snapped while our Dino and Miss Sharon were makin' magic on the set of Helmer numero 4, "The Wrecking Crew."

How wonderful it musta have been for Mr. Pepper Martin to have spent time with THE MARTIN OF ALL TIMES....our one, our only Dino!!!!!  We're simply gonna have to checks out this new tome 'cause we bet between it's pages there will be some interestin' insights into the life, the times, and the teachin's of our main man.  We thanks Miss Sara Cardine and the folks at the L.A. Times for gettin' Mr. Pepper Martin's story into print, and of course we thanks Pepper for lettin' the world know of is Dino-connection.  Likes, to read the prose in total, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-gram.

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

Dino Martin Peters

Somewhere long ago, I read that our Dino was greatly saddened by the murder of Sharon Tate. Did he attend her funeral?

Danny G. said...

I actually...personally...suspect they might have had strong feelings for one another. And...maybe...even think that she was pregnant with Deans baby! Am I bein' crazy? What you think?

Danny G.,
Our Dino might well have had strong feelings for Sharon Tate. But her having his baby? I don't think so.

Didn't our Dino have a vasectomy after his last child with Jeanne?

Your prob right Ms AOW. He just seemed very smitten with her to me.
