On This Day In Dino-history: November 17, 1951




Hey pallies, likes today is one of the happiest of happy days...indeed, if not the happiest day in all of Dino-history 'cause 66 years ago this very day, on November 17, 1951, our most beloved Dino's most beloved boypallie, Dino Martin Jr. was born to proud daddy-o Dino and mother Jeanne.   Likes thinks of the powerfully pure pride our potently  powerful Dino had in namin' his first child by Jeanne after himself. Likes thinks of the  hopes, the dreams our great man had for his little boypallie by givin' his new son his gloriously great name!




And, indeed our Dino's boypallie namesake certainly did live up to the takin' of his amazin' Daddy-o's tag...becomin' a hugely successful entertainer himself while just in his teens as part of the swingin' pop trio Dino, Desi, and Billy.



Dino Jr. went on to acclaim as a tennis pro and football player, and found fame and fortune as an actor on both the small and big screens. And our Dino's golden boy also was gloriously  golden when it came to bein' a pilot of jet airplanes.



Likes Dino Jr. had only one real pressin' problemo...he was so marvelously multi-talented likes his famous father, that he just couldn't decide which of his many interests to put the major accent of his life on.



One thin' for sure pallies, Dino Jr. was definitely  heir apparent to the Dino-throne. And, of course all of that came to a crashin' end when Dino Jr. tragically crashed his National Guard F-4 Phantom fighter jet in California's San Bernardino Mountains during a snowstorm on March 21, 1987.


Today we celebrate this happiest of happy days in our Dino's life as we reverently remember and hugely honor Dino Jr. on the 66th anniversary of his entry into family Martin. But, in the midst of our celebratin' we can't help but be so so sad as well as we know that the end of the Dino Jr. story turned out to break our lovin' Dino's lovin' heart as he never ever got over the death of his beloved namesake.

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

Dino Martin Peters

An amazing day in Dean history for sure, 66 years young! I must say I love the photographs, Jeanne looks so young and pretty here. They really look like such a happy family at this time. A wonderful posting DMP, thank you.
