Youse ready for the big day?!
We is gettin' down to the wire, now, mi amici!
Definitely one of those bittersweet days for us Dino-lovers.
Along with all the happiness & chaotic excitement that comes with Christmas...we also mark 'nother year without our main guy...here, among us. Dino-Departure Day.
But...my friends! We still have his spirit!
Gotta 'member that!
Dino will be our shinin' light through ALL thins'!
The power of music is real, pals! And Dino's, more than any other...can help us through anythin'!
So...palsies o mine...let's be merry!
Celebrate his life, times & teachins'!
And never give up that glowin', happy Dino-vibe!
I'm feelin' a little foolish today, actually! Haha!! Gotta be that strong Dino-spirit in the air, this time of year, pals!
So what else is there left to do 'cept roll with it & get that FUN FUN Dino-air swirlin'!
How's 'bout some "Jingle Bells"...as ONLY our main dude can do "Jingle Bells"...for this week's Serenade?!
Yup! Sounds good to me!
O'...& btw, pallies...since this is the last actual Sunday before the big day...I is gonna try to post next week's Serenade early. Probably try for Friday.
No way I can let this VERY special day pass without one more VERY special Dino-jam!
OK, mi amici...enjoy the tune, my friends! And enjoy all the crazy Christmassy-chaos!
It's TRULY the MOST Dino-ful time of the year!

How youse feelin'?
Hopefully not TOO stressed out.
I know we gots a LOT of thins' to do...gettin' ready for the big day! Dino-Departure day, that is! Haha!!
Yup...it's a BUSY time of year, palsies. Not easy keepin' your mindset on "chill mode" these next couple weeks. Everyone seems to go into panic mode! Seem to forget what the holidays are all 'bout.
Well, pals...what we need to do...is to just relax.
Take a deep breath...& relax.
Thins' will come together...& we'll all be OK.
Just do what I do, my friends! Increase your Dino-intake...& maybe a little more vino. Haha!! That's somethin' we DEFINATELY can ALL use!
Actually...what I seem to have the hardest time with...is holdin' onto my traditions...which I've mentioned here before.
Sometimes that gets me a wee bit blue, pals. Ain't easy when family that once were the tradition do-ers...are all gone. Now it's up to you...& no one else is diggin' what youse do! Ugh!!
Yup...not easy convincin' my kiddies that "The Feast of the Seven Fishes" is a yummy Christmas Eve dinner! That "polpi" & calamad"...(octopus & squid) are delicious! Haha!!
Nope...they just ain't feelin' the old traditional vibe...that I grew up with...mi amici.
Really gets me longin' for "the old days", pals. Christmas' long gone by. I'm sure youse can relate, my friends.
I thinks this week's Serenade will get us back to those days, pallies. Maybe not physically...but will definitely bring our thoughts back to those great great days!
Dino's "I'll Be Home for Christmas"...is the one tune that gets me both happy & sad...both...at the same time. Melancholy, but comforted. Just thinkin' back & bein' SO SO thankful & appreciative for those memories...gives me the energy & extra "pep in my step"...to keep on keepin' on!
Actually, pals...Dino jams are the one tradition...that no matter what...or who...is 'round...have ALWAYS been & ALWAYS will be...my one CONSTANT Christmassy tradition. Now, friends o mine...who can ask for ANY more than that?

And...there's only TWO cool cool cats that can swing on it together!
Of course I is referrin' to "Marshmallow World" by Dean & Frank!
Likes no other duet known to man has ever entertained the masses SO SO feverishly, pals! Haha!!
Now I know it STILL isn't very marshmallowy out there, yet...& I ain't complainin'...but what better way to ring in Dino-Winter Month?!
It DEF I NATE LY gets me in the holiday spirit & DEF I NATE LY keeps me in that Wintery Dino-vibe!
OK...'nough talkin'...let's get Dino-rockin'!
Oh, and by the way...I couldn't help but play Dean's solo track of this GREAT GREAT jam too. Hey, pals...I'm a Dino-junkie...what can I say?! Haha!!
OK, mi amici... 'member...go easy!
Santa's not the ONLY one watchin'...Dean wants youse to take a breath...inhale that cool cool Dino-air...& just relax.
It's the ONLY way to be, pals.
