But...what makes thins' a little bit easier on my bein' part of this GREAT GREAT blog...'specially today. Gives me a chance to share a little piece of myself & my thoughts 'bout Dean. What he's meant to me throughout my life.  

Today...although we is reminded 'bout what we've lost...& we are ALL surely missin' our fearless leader, Dino Martin Peters, we also think 'bout what we still have! Life is GOOD! Dino keeps it that way! Crazy, yes. Upside down...Definately! But, good.

What a great great time of year to REALLY get in touch with your inner Dino, too, my friends! Just soak in his vibe & spread it all 'round! 

I'm so so thrilled be able to play one of the ab so lute BESTEST of the BEST Christmas tunes... by the ab so lute BESTEST of the BEST Christmas crooners! 

The song I've chosen, for this VERY special Dino-Departure Day Serenade, maybe my fave...DEF I NATE LY  HAS to be..."Silent Night/Peace on Earth".  

How could I NOT pick this BEA U TI FUL tune? 

With the 25nd anniversary of Dean's big exit...I NEED to play a song FILLED with true, pure Dino-passion! 

Don't know 'bout youse pallies...but this tune REALLY moves me! So So softly POWERFUL & So So gently SOOTHIN' to my soul. 

It takes me to a place... where we is ALL forever young & Dean is ALWAYS & FOREVER present'.

Don't knows why I forget this progression, every year. Either I is gettin' old or sippin' on too many martinis lately! Haha!! 

So, my friends...relax. Dean's snowy tunes will keep us on ice 'til the first signs of Spring! Hallelujah!!! What a guy! He'd NEVER abandon us right smack in the middle of this crazy & chilly season! 

Actually, as my "dear" old Uncle reminded me...Winter hasn't even officially started yet! We still gots PLENTY of time for these type o' tunes!  

Anyways, pallies...speakin' 'bout my ol' Uncle...he REALLY had me thinkin' back to my younger days. We were laughin' 'bout all the crazy thins' that have happened over the years. Reminisced 'bout all the peeps that have come & gone. REALLY gots me longin' for those olden times & Christmases gone by. 

Man, mi amici...what I wouldn't give to be back there, now...just for a bit. 

Hug my Dad...give my Nanna a BIG foolish with my friends. Just be young & free of worry, once 'gain. I guess we ALL wouldn't mind that huh, pals? 

Well...guess what, my friends?! 

Deans gonna help us do just that! 

Today's Serenade, "I'll Be Home for Christmas", is that ONE special song that REALLY takes me back there. Takes me back to those WONDERFUL days! In a melancholy way, for sure. 

I'm hopin' that it will bring ALL youse, pals o' mine, some GREAT GREAT memories of this GREAT GREAT season, as well!  

Stay safe & Enjoy!
