Ed's Epistle - Dean Martin Festival 2017 News & Notes
And what a June 2017 Year Of Our Dino it has been! What a job done by THE Mr. DMP bringing us news daily, and that of Danny G with non-stop Dino tunes to help remind us what it's all about.
My last June story is one that's hard to believe, and I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't heard for myself pallies.
I met this lovely lady of 82 years while strolling through the Dean Martin room in the Jefferson County museum. I was admiring the Dino pics and articles when I heard a conversation between her and another group of people. I only heard bits a pieces of the conversation regarding a Dean Martin story. Once done, I asked her what her story was.
She told me this....
On the corner of 6th St, Steubenville, in the year 1935, Dino Crocetti was singing to a small crowd. In the crowd was a mother holding her baby. Once done singing, Dino asked the young mother if he could hold the baby girl. The mother obliged and let Dino hold her baby. This lady was that baby.
Her father always reminded her that for the rest of her life she had that story to tell. So here we are telling her story with her! I cropped myself out, cause it's not about me palllies...
