Dean Martin at Diabetes Lunch

Our Willow Glen Lions Club bought over a table-full of tickets to the Willow Glen Diabetes Society benefit lunch last weekend. The entertainment was a Dean Martin impersonator. I have never seen an impersonator show before but from the large number available it seems to be a popular entertainment.

I am old enough to remember watching Dean Martin’s Rat Pack movies on TV with Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop. But I am young enough that Dino’s stardom seems as distant as that of Cary Grant. Girls of my generation sighed over Robert Redford. It was odd watching some of the ladies at the Diabetes Society lunch snuggling up to the actor: clearly he rang bells for them. Matt Helm, the impersonator, sang, told jokes and seemed to have fun camping it up with the audience. I have no idea what the much younger audience members thought about all of this.
