Hey pallies, likes on this 13th day of Dino-amore month, the day before Dino-amore day, which our pallie Danny-o has a sensationally special, excellent edition of his Sunday Serenade with Dino, we share with you 'nother first person account of their affectionate adulation of our most beloved Dino.

Likes while lookin' through Dino-'lerts sent to our email from our pallies at Google, we landed on a potent post from a blog tagged "VEGAS SEVEN" when Miss Lissa Townsend Rogers, Senior writer at Vegas Seven, shares her superb scribin's of marvelous memories from members of the Chorus Line back in the day when 'Vegas baby 'Vegas was our Dino's playground.

Miss Rodgers sizzlin' scribin's is tagged " Stories From the Chorus Line - Step inside the dressing room and we’ll tell you a tale..." includes magical memories from Miss Joy Blaine Garner who danced for the El Rancho, Riviera, Tropicana, Sands casinos durin' the 50's and sixties.

Below we share only the Dino-focused comments from her thought, and we would encourage you to clicks on the tag of this Dino-gram to read all her remarkable remembrances as well as the other chorus members featured in the post.  We, of course, were deeply drawn to her lovin' words 'bout our Dino...."Of course, Dean Martin was super" as well as learnin' the new Dino-detail that our Dino was best man for her weddin' nuptials to Mr. Don Cherry....a golfin' and croonin' pallie of our Dino.

Likes how cool woulda it be to have our King of Cool as bestest of best man in one's weddin'...indeed how blessed Miss Garner's life has been to call our Dino and Miss Jeanne as friends.  We think that this is the most perfect of perfect Dino-offerin' to lead up to our Dino-amore day festivities on the 'morrow!!!!!!  We sez our thank you very much to Miss Joy Blaine Garner and to Miss Lissa Townsend Rogers of "VEGAS SEVEN" for bringin' this tale of Dino-appreciato to the larger Dino-world.   Deeply Deeply Devoted to our Dino, DMP

Just knowing the Rat Pack, we knew all those guys. Sammy Davis used to always throw parties, and he was a great guy. Of course, Dean Martin was super—later, he and his wife became good friends with my husband and I. I married Don Cherry. He was a singer and a professional golfer, and Dean Martin was our best man.

Our Dino had a way of making the Vegas underlings feel important and special -- likely because the King of Cool himself came from humble roots.
