Hey pallies, likes welcome to the start of Dino-winter-month here at the ol' ilovedinomartin Dino-blog. Dino-winter-month is likes always always such a bittersweet time for all us Dino-devoted pallies. On the one hand very very sweet, 'cause likes no one, and likes we mean no one, sings seasonal selections likes our Dino....and on the other oh, so bitter likes 'cause December 25 is the day when we mourn our great man's departure from our planet.

Today we begin Dino-winter-month likes on a high note as we give a nod to that recent release of the "The Dean Martin Show: Christmas 1968" from the pallies at TIME-LIFE. Although huge numbers of us Dino-philes where hopin' for the release of the fabulous 1967 Dino Christmas Special that featured family Martin and family Sinatra, and although the release of the 1968 Christmas show is not uncut....a pallie noted that our Dino's couch song, "I'll Be Home For Christmas" has been omitted, it is none-the-less a stellar Dino-winter-show givin' dudes likes us huge doses of Dino-delight.

Below is a post from the blog, "name that christmas" where a dude tagged Jeff has shared the details of this very recent release...and 20---count 'em-20 stunnin' pixs taken from the show. Below you will find over half of the vid caps posted for our Dino-viewin' pleasure...all the ones that likes puts the accent on our Dino.

Hats off to Mr. Jeff and the folks at "name that christmas" for helpin' spread the news of this vital new Dino-release. To view this in it's original format, simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-message. Dino-awed, DMP
