Danny G's SPECIAL Dino-Winter Month Sunday Serenade with Dino: " I'll Be Home For Christmas"

 Welcome back, mi amici & welcome to week two of our Dino-Winter Month celebration! What a glorious time of year it is, pals! 

How youse feelin'? 

Hopefully not TOO stressed out. 

I know we gots a LOT of thins' to do...gettin' ready for the big day! Which also just so happens to be Dino-Departure day.'s a BUSY time of year, pallies o' mine. 

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 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 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" the one tune that gets me both happy & the same time. Melancholy, but comforted. 

Just thinkin' back & bein' SO SO thankful & appreciative for those me the energy & extra "pep in my step" keep on keepin' on! 

Actually, pals...Dino jams are the one tradition...that no matter what...or 'round...have ALWAYS been & ALWAYS will one CONSTANT Christmassy tradition. 

Now, friends o mine...who can ask for ANY more than that? 

Soak this one in & I'll catch youse next time.

How's 'bout we start thins' off with some "If I Had You"? OK, pals! Sounds like a "leaf rakin'" plan! 

The one small problem, pallies... Sometimes...just sometimes...these easy flowin' jams get me in such a chilled out mood...I ends up pourin' up some vino & just chillin' with Dino! Hahaha!!! O well, my friends...nothin' wrong with that! Leaves ain't goin' anywhere! They can wait. Ha!

Maybe I'll just call that neighborhood kid who rakes leaves! Haha! 


Now THAT sounds even better! 

I thinks I just had me a Dino-revelation! Haha!! I'll let youse decide for yourselves, mi amici. 

Either way...keep the Dino & the vino flowin'!

Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "You Were Made For Love"

 Welcome back, my friends! 

How's September treatin' youse so far? 

Not so, in my part of the world. Was a BEA U TI FUL Blue-sky'd 80 degrees yesterday! 

Summer just HATES to go, I guess! 

I don't mind so much though, mi amici. Fall is a GREAT season too! 

I just LOVE the spooky vibe in the air from now 'til Halloween! 

Truth be told...I loves September! The weather is still comfy & a break from the heat isn't so bad either. that I thinks 'bout it, pals... I actually can't wait for the Autumn solstice...that means Fall in British. Haha!! 

'Nother cool cool occasion is comin' soon as well. This week was the birthday of a VERY special someone to Danny G...who just so happens to be a GIGANTIC Dino-holic! 

Hey! That gives me a SWINGIN' idea, pallies! I is gonna send today's Serenade out to this someone & let her know just how SPECIAL she is! 

Seems that gettin' further & further from her younger years has got her stressin' a bit. Hey...tell me 'bout it, mi amici! Haha!! Anyway...She DEF I NATE LY has NUTHIN' to worry 'bout, though pals. She's a GREAT GREAT lady & STILL has ALL the fellas howlin' at the moon! Hahaha!!! 

Thinks she just needs a little Dino-croonin' to lift her spirits. 

Now let me see...hmmmm. 

Got it!

A touch of Dean's "You Were Made For Love", should get her smilin'! 

DEF I NATE LY get's me in a happy mood, pallies! 

So, this one's for you...birthday girl! 

Enjoy your week & enjoy the Dino-jam... goin' out just for you!  

Ciao bella!

Danny G's SPECIAL Labor Day Sunday Serenade with Dino: "In The Misty Moonlight"

 Welcome back, all my hard workin' amici! 

Happy Labor Day Weekend! 

Happy September, too! 

Today feels like a GREAT day to catch our breaths. Don't it?  It's a day to chill out...have a drink...& just relax! 

Monday's day off is a time to honor ALL the GREAT GREAT folks who work every day & do their part to contribute to this GREAT GREAT country of ours! Youse keep the machine runnin', pallies! 

Now...we ALL have our job to do, my friends. From police & firemen & stay-at-home moms & dads. Each one is important & is worthy of praise. 

Well, pals...I can think of a VERY VERY COOL COOL HARD WORKIN' fella...goes by the name "Dino". This was one laborin' kinda guy, my friends! Sure, he made it look it easy. But...Dean was one of the BUSIEST cats in the entertainment world, pallies! From performin' live & recordin' makin' movies & doin' TV shows...He was some kinda work-aholic! Haha!! 

People can say that he was lazy & only played golf...but WE knows the facts, mi amici! 

I have one more VERY special somebody in mind today, pals. Mama mia. My mom. Mama G.! It was her birthday yesterday! Yay, Mom! 

She was/is ALWAYS there for ol' Danny G., even when I was actin' like a fool! Haha!! Which was quite often, pals! Hahaha!!! 

Now THAT'S Labor! Ha! 

She's sacrificed a lot for me & ALWAYS has my back. Not to mention...was one of the first to introduce me to the sweet sweet sound...of the voice...that is Dean Martin!  

I thinks I will play one of her all time FAVE Dino-tunes for this week's Serenade, my friends. As I likes to do every year... "In the Misty Moonlight". 

It's sure to bring a happy thought of Mama G. & is a cool cool jam to relax to on this chilled-out kind of day. 

So, here we's go, pallies! 

Enjoy your weekend! 

Happy Birthday, Mom! 

Let's keep that Dino & vino flowin'!!!
