Likes as you will see below, James begins by so so kindly referrin' to my comment on his post that featured a Dino-lookin' toy figure, and then proceeds to speak of his own devotion to our Dino sayin', "I always liked Dean Martin as a child, especially when he teamed up with Jerry Lewis." O' Connell follows these great Dino-throughts with even more great praise of our great man.
And, he also included a couple of new pixs of the Dino-figure as well as the Sammy-figure that he had mentioned previously but not shown.
ilovedinomartin so so appreciates Mr. James O' Connell's kind reference to the ol' ilovedinomartin Dino-blog and to sharin' his own fondless of our most beloved Dino with his readership. To checks this out in it's original format, simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-gram. Dino-gratefully, DMP
Dean Martin and the scope of the Internet
I found it amazing that the last comment was from not a toy soldier collector or wargamer but a person who is primarily interested in Dean Martin. In fact Dean Martin Peters has his own blog devoted to Dean Martin. It shows how broad a readership of a post can be.
I always liked Dean Martin as a child, especially when teamed up with Jerry Lewis. He had that sonorous voice when speaking and singing which is inherently relaxing. And he is one of those characters who loves the good things in life (notably a good drink and a good woman). One of the genres that I thought he was very good in was the western which shows how versatile he was to go from singing 'Amore' to being the tough guy.
The miniature Dean Martin most likely has a future observing Bordurian tanks sweeping through a town or, perhaps as a spy for the Syldavians or other nations.
Anyway cheers to the Dean Martin fans of the world.
