Dino apparently knew early that he was fated for a glamorous destiny.

Hey pallies, likes we have been on quite the quintessential Dino-roll the past few, and while we won't claim that today's Dino-devotion can top some of this week's earlier Dino-grams, know that none the less we are proudly pleased as punch to be puttin' all youse Dino-holics onto a great little Dino-tale shared by a dude who tags himeself Monk (hardblue) at his lively "livejournel" blog.

Likes while Mr. Monk doesn't speak words 'bout his awesome adulation of our most beloved Dino, one can tell by the delightful Dino-centric post he shares, that he musta be deeply deeply devoted to our main man.  The post is a retellin' of a tremendous tellin' time in our Dino's early life as recorded by our Dino's bestest of best biographer Mr. Nick Tosches.

It's a quotation shared with Mr. Tosches by our Dino's dentist as a youth growin' up in Steubenville, Ohio pointin' to the fantastic fore knowledge that our amazin' man had even as a lad 'bout his journey to fame and fortune as entertainer extraordinare.  It's remarkable remembrances such as this that makes us stand ever in astoundin' awe of our one and only Dino, who even as a youngster keenly knew his destiny to fame and fortune.

Likes, we gotta 'fess up that we don't remember readin' this Dino-history in Nick's beautiful bio, "DINO: Living High In The Dirty Business Of Dreams" and is powerfully proddin' us to gets back to devourin' this massive missive of the life, times, and teachin's of our King of Cool.  We sez our thank you very much to Mr. Monk for sharin' this wonderful wise words from our Dino with his readership helpin' many may we are sure to fall deeper deeper into their devotion to our most beloved Dino.
To checks this out in it's original format, as usual, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-message.

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

“Take good care of my teeth and make them look good,” Dean’s family dentist, old Dr. V. J. DeLuca, remembered Dean saying as a kid. “When I get big, I’m going to be an entertainer.”

I notice that Dino's right ear looks like it's bumpy. It's what boxers used to call 'Cauliflower ears' from getting punched so many times in the boxing ring. Have you ever noticed this before, and do you have a better photo of that ear? By the way, thanks for the great blog on Dean Martin.

No one has a better smile or teeth then Dean, it would seem he knew from the beginning he was going places. A great read DMP, thank you.

Have a great week.
