Celebrating My Birthday With Sammy Davis Jr. At The Dino Lounge

Happy Birthday to me! I turn 39 as of 2:05am (Eastern Standard Time) on December 4th. It's hard to believe that another year has passed on by. I'm still trying to make up my mind how I will be celebrating my birthday.

This was sent to me by a good pallie Celeste. I love Jerry Lewis in that movie. So this was extra special to me.

I wish Sammy Davis Jr. was still alive. I'd love to have him entertain me and all my pallies on my special day. That would be so cool. Cheers!

P.S. This is a clip of Sammy Davis Jr. singing I Dream A Dream. I love his version of this song. It really brought tears to my eyes. I love this man so much. He's the best!

Hey, have you checked out Anthony Newley? Sammy was a huge fan and covered many of his tunes, Tony Bennet did a few too. I heard a gerat podcast about him this week. Check him out he'll be right up your street.

Happy birthday, buddy. I can't believe you are 39. It seems like yesterday I was a baby and you were 14. God, how time flies. I hope you have a great year until the big 4-0. It won't be so bad. :) LOVE YOU.
