I've really been thinkin'...this whole month...'bout how TRULY awesome it is...that after ALL these years...ALL this time...the name Dean Martin...STILL carries SO SO much happiness, fun & respect! Man, mi amici...that's impressive to me! We STILL here his songs on TV commercials...I played the latest for us, just a couple weeks back. We STILL see his movies regularly! And even in today's high tech world of the internet...we is STILL flooded with new stories, tributes, & birthday wishes! Not to mention his very own festival...numerous impersonators...& countless new & old performers givin' thanks & showin' gratitude.

So So cool! 

Well, the curtain falls on 'nother GREAT GREAT month long tribute to "The Day That Coolness Came To Earth"... let's ponder if Mr. & Mrs. Gaetano Crocetti could ever have imagined, that on that GREAT GREAT & BLESSED day...June 7th, 1917...their bouncin' & swingin' baby boy...would STILL be praised..."A Hundred Years From Today"!

 Welcome back, mi amici & welcome to 'nother "Month Coolness Came to Earth" we gets ready to celebrate "The DAY Coolness Came to Earth!" Ha! 

Man o man, I am just SO SO pumped!

Don't forget to checks out the Turner Classic Movies" (TCM) channel! They will be rockin' Dino flicks all damn day! Haha!! 

Man...What a time we've had, huh, pals? 

Day after day & year after year...Dino has been an ever present companion for us. He's my "Cumpare". A friend, swingin' through life with me. Side by side & never even a worry that he would let me down. 

It might be hard to believe or even understand, to many...but to we "Dino-holics"'s as simple & natural as olives in a martini. That's just the way it is! Dean is our pal. Like family, really. The COOL uncle who shows up for every party, weddin', or cook out. And when he does...MAN...what a time it is! The room wakes up! Dance floors are flooded like the party just started! Dino just has that effect on us. He equals FUN & GREAT TIMES! 

Now pals...I could go on & on 'bout what Dean means to me & how much happiness he's brought to my life. But...I think youse knows EXACTLY what I'm talkin' 'bout. He brings his spirit to us all.  

On June 7th, 1917...God sent us a gift. A gift that TRULY keeps on givin'. We were the lucky ones, mi amici. Most of us, anyway, can say we walked the Earth at the same time as he did. Now, to me...that's VERY cool! Of course, Dino's music & movies...TV shows & live performances, will be 'round forever,'s OUR generations that were here WITH him! 

VERY cool, indeed. 

OK, pallies...I gotta go. Got some Dino tunes I gotta get jammin' too! Haha!! 

Happy Birthday, Dino! 

Hey, wait a minute! I got SO caught up in the Dino-moment...I almost for the main reason I is here...the SERENADE! 

Well, pals...this ones easy. All I needs to do is think of Dino. He's my guy. My mentor...& my friend. Man o man, pallies..."How Sweet It Is!"
