See the Big Picture

This past week, I wrote about old, glamorous Las Vegas. I got some of those pictures from the wonderful archives at UNLV. Here's another good one of Dean Martin at the Sands, in a large format. If you look closely, you'll see Jack Entratter (owner of the Sands, and Vegas mogul) and Jack Benny in the front row, with his hands over his face. Look a little closer, and you'll see Lucille Ball (I really do love Lucy) and Desi Arnaz in the second row. It would have been so fun to sit next to Lucy for one of those shows! Although Desi probably would have hit on me...sorry, Desi, I would never betray Bucko or my BFF Lucy that way. Hee heee!

Yeah, I think there was a sort of "romance" there, Traci, that we don't really have anymore.

Hi Lisa! Thanks for visiting and for commenting! YES, I've watched Regis and Kelly, and it seems that Regis is an actual member of the Dean Martin fan club! I loved the Dean Martin Roasts, too, and I've thought about getting some of them on DVD.

I'm glad you stopped by--I will check out your journal ASAP!
