Sammy Davis Jr. On Ebony Magazine, Plus I Got An Award

I love this cover from Ebony magazine featuring Sammy Davis Jr. It's the March 1980 issue. Sammy looks so happy here. Plus check out those threads. Sammy always had such cool style. He's definitely one cool cat.

P.S. I was honored with the I Love Your Blog Award by the wonderful blog Janettteria. I appreciate it so very much. I had a hard time picking which blogs to bestow this award on. I love all your blogs. I'm giving this award to anybody who wants it. You all deserve it.
