Oh well. That's how it works, mi amici. Souls come & go. Some just leave more of an impression. 

I've been PERMANENTLY a good our pal, Dean. 

Never to be the same...& never regrettin' a second. 

Dino has helped mold me into the crazy, silly fella I am! Haha!! That's a GREAT thin', pallies! Proud to say that Dino inspires me everyday! 

Let's move forward... into the new year... with Dean in mind... always proud to be who we are, pals o mine! Dino-holics! Haha!! 

Today's tune, "A Winter Romance", kinda sums it all up & is a perfecto end to Dino-Winter Month Sunday Serenades 2020. 

We ALL have a romance with a way. He's my pal, my mentor & my inspiration. That's a kinda romance. Maybe a Bro-mance! Hahaha!!! Whateva' youse wanna call it...he's my man! 

Let's leave the month & year off knowin' that this comin' year will be BETTER! 

Here's to you, Dean Martin! R.I.P pallie. & Thank you.
