Our Dino Wishes Us A Merry Christmas

Hey pallies, likes the year was 1994, the season was wintery, and our Dino was steppin' out of one of his favorite waterin' holes when a dude with a vid camera runnin' asked our most beloved Dino to say "Merry Christmas" to all  his beloved devotees.   And, our gracious, gracious great man does indeed to just that.

The video below captures that moment in time....just 'bout one year before he would leave our planet forever on December 25, 1995.  To ilovedinomartin this is indeed a very bitter-sweet sort of remembrance.  It is very very clear from this vid that our Dino was in much physical decline at this stage of his life.  And, likes as much as we are grateful to hear his wintery greetin' to all us pallies, we are also sad to see our King of Cool in such decline.

ilovedinomartin thanks our Dino-devoted pallie Danny G. who put us on to this rare Dino-moment so that we coulda shares it with all of youse Dino-lovers.  We here at ilovedinomartin wish you a day full of lovin' Dino-remembrance as we pay our deepest of deep respect to our most beloved Dino on this remembrance of his passin' from our presence.   Dino-honorin', DMP

Yes, it's sad to see the King of Cool in decline such as shown in this video. Nevertheless, it speaks to the greatness of our Dino that, even in his final decline, he was able to say "Merry Christmas!" in his usual affable manner. Sad as he was in his later years, particularly after the death of Dino, Jr., our Dino truly didn't like to dwell on dark matters. He loved happiness.

What a great man our Dino was! The world shall not see his like again.

And now, to all who frequent this blog and to Dino fans everywhere, these words penned by Charles Dickens, and words that I'm sure our Dino endorses because he sometimes closed his TV show with a God-bless:

And so, as Tiny Tim said, "A Merry Christmas to us all; God bless us, every one!"
