"My memories of the good are my best friends. And Dino provided the soundtrack."

Hey pallies, likes here is more homage to our beloved Dino from our Dino-lovin' lady of the "Longshot's Blog" whose outstandin' Dino-trib," Oh! Dino How I Miss You," was featured yester-Dino-day here at ilovedinomartin.

Upon my speakin' some Dino-patter of Dino-appreciato at her blog, this Dino-diggin' lady shared more with me 'bout the history of her Dino-yearnin' and the amazin' depth of her Dino-devotion!

I trust likes you will revel in her Dino-prose as much as I does. Ain't nothin' like findin' kindred Dino-spirits to share our common Dino-adulation. And, likes the Dino-link she mentions to 'nother great piece of Dino-prose will no doubt appear soon here at ilovedinomartin.

ilovedinomartin sends our Dino-thanks to his Miss Longshot for sharin' boldly and beautifully her profoundly pure Dino-passion with us. To view the "Longshot's Blog" just clicks on the tagg of this Dino-post. Dino-sweet, DMP

Thank You kentsmokerguy,

This man’s music affected me from a very very young age. I’d say like 3. As I said in the blog my Aunt Annie had two 45s ( In reality both my Aunts had every album he made ) of An Evening in Roma, and the one playing. I fell in love with Professor! Professor! and it will always have a place in my heart until the day I die.

The memories from this music can bring on crying because I miss my Aunt so much. And Dean Martin I was bonkers about. My Mom would take me to the show to see his movies. I specifically remember ” How to save a marriage and ruin your life ” and ” Airport “. I got yelled at more times on Thursday nights when Dino came on than any other. When I was coming up in 60s, you butt had better been in bed when your parents said so. I’d always be sneaking around the corner to watch his show. Sometime I got caught other times I lucked out. Then there were times they knew but let it go.

I absolutely adored Dean Martin. What girl wouldn’t of? lol
Well nothing has changed 3 years old or 53. I remember when he died and on Christmas of all days. The first one I called was my Aunt Annie. I swear it felt like we lost a family member. A year later I lost her.

My memories of the good are my best friends. And Dino provided the soundtrack.

I hope you click on to this link, I know you would enjoy it. Thanks again for the response.

Even though I was only 5 years old I remember the day Dean died.
It came as such a shock.
I felt he was invincible.
It was the saddest Christmas I ever had

Hey pallie, a very sad day indeed when our Dino left our planet...but how amazin' that at the tender age of 5, our Dino's death had such a profound impact on your young life...a tribute to the wonderful job your father had done in helpin' you know, love, and honor our Dino at such a young age...truly awesome....
