Sammy Davis Jr. Relaxes In His Hotel Room

Sammy looks over the menu for room service, while trying to figure out what to watch on television.

P.S. Does anyone have any blogs that they would recommend that I check out? I'm always interested in visiting blogs I've never been to before. If I'm a fan of your blog, then I'll probably enjoy other blogs similar to it. Any blog that really strikes your fancy that you would like to share with me, please feel free to. Thanks. I appreciate it.

Have we exchanged blog links with each other? I've got a list of my favorite blogs in the sidebar. I might have added your blog already. If you would like for me to add your blog to my blog links, then please let me know. I hope you would do the same for me as well. Thanks again. Cheers!

I've never seen that photo of Sammy. That's a good one. I really like him.

Keith said...

Hey Jim. Yeah, it does. I'm sure he ordered something very tasty.

Keith said...

Thanks Choo. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Carrie. Glad you liked it. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Kandi. Thanks. I really like Autumn Jones, but I've never been to the other one. I'll have to check it out.

Keith said...

Hey pallie DMP. I have no clue. I assume he's somebody that works for Sammy.

Keith said...

Hey Robert. I agree with ya. Cool to see Sammy unwind.

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe. I'm glad you liked it. Cheers!

I started blogging in late March, and yours was one of the first blogs I discovered. Being an old Rat Pack fan, your pictures are a great walk down memory lane. Did you ever find out where Sinatra was testifying in those pictures?

My blog is a lot different than yours. I'm a first-wave baby boomer. Those of us who were teen-agers on November 22, 1963 began seeing the world differently as a result of that event.

Unlike most of my friends, I owned more Sinatra, Dean, Tony Bennett, and Sammy Davis Jr. albums than rock & roll.

Anyone who has ever heard Sammy belt out "Birth of The Blues" knows where I'm coming from.

I didn't mean to take up so much space on your blog, but I hope you'll visit me at www.brucecoltin.blogspot.com and see if my messages resonate with you.

And by the way, I actually saw the Hollywood Palace show, mentioned on your blog, where Dean introduced the Rolling Stones to American audiences and took some really hard shots at them, while doing it.

Take care. And keep it coming.

Hey Bruce. Thanks so much. I really enjoyed reading your comments. It was great hearing from you. I have no problem with how much you write. Write away. I wasn't born until 1970.

I hope you will continue to check out my blog. Please feel free to leave more comments. I do enjoy hearing from people. Take care. Cheers!
