Likes, oh oh, how likes I wishes that I had been in 'Vegas to see our great man with the rest of the pack makin' funny and croonin tunes at the Sands. Likes what a wonderful day to celebrate the life and times of our beloved Dino and his swingin' association with the Rat Pack.

As a little Dino-bonus, likes checks out the great Dino-clip of our beloved Dino and the rest of the pack playin' the Copa Room at the Sands in '63. Loves watchin' our Dino swingin'! Dino-celebratin', DMP

Dear Mr. Peters,
Just a quick comment to let you know that, even if I'm not so visible, I check out your blog every day. I love these pictures, and like you, wish I could have been there to experience these moments in Dino-history. Thanks for keeping him in the Now, and not letting him fade away.

The beginning of an era!

I wish that the era will still with us.


It IS still with us. We have memories and photographic/videgraphic records of that wonderful era.

I'm so glad that such technology was available while Dino was still walking this earth.

Hey pallie, couldn't agree with you more Miss AOW..."I'm so glad that such technology was available while Dino was still walking this earth." Who woulda thought back in the days when our Dino began makin' Dino-history that we woulda be able to watch and listen to so much of this is helpin' the Dino-legacy grow by leaps and bounds...and ain't that a kick in the head!
