Ain't That A Kick In The Head

1) Dean Martin asks the musical question, "How lucky can one guy be?" Tell us about a time when you got a lucky break. My doctor ordered a CAT scan after I made an off-hand remark about being overtired and coughing a lot and that caught my pulmonary emboli

2) This song was introduced in the original Ocean's 11 movie. Have you seen it, or the remake and its sequels? I have seen the original as well as having a deep affection for the remake and its sequels

3) All the Ocean's movies are about heists. Why do you suppose audiences enjoy watching caper films? I love them because they are so clever
4) Dean was born in Steubenville, OH. Though he seldom returned to his hometown, he kept Steubenville in his thoughts, regularly donating toys to area children hospitalized over the holidays. Who received the last gift you gave? some of my graduating students
5) Dean was extremely claustrophobic and avoided elevators whenever possible -- and even when it wasn't. He was late for the first night of an engagement, even though he was staying at the hotel where he was performing, because he insisted on taking the stairs from his luxury suite to the showroom (18 flights). The hotel put him in a smaller, less prestigious room on a lower floor so he could more easily arrive on time for his own shows. Have you ever been stuck in an elevator?
yes, a tiny elevator--I was probably 7 years old with a couple of other kids and we thought it was AWESOME

6) He and Frank Sinatra were great friends, but they had their differences. For example, Frank loved to party and Dean hated it. One of Sinatra's favorite stories was about how Dean got bored with a party in his own home and went up to his bedroom to watch TV. When the guests didn't take his hint and leave, Dean made an anonymous noise complaint to the police, who came over and broke up the party. When it comes to parties, are you more like Frank or Dean? I'm a combination of both

7) Dean Martin had a secret passion for comic books. He loved them, but was too embarrassed to buy them himself. What's your guilty pleasure? The Housewives franchises on Bravo

8) In 1960, when this song was released, Princess Margaret married photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones. Their relationship began when he was commissioned to take her official portrait. Who took the most recent picture of you? I think it was a selfie

9) Random question (Not really so random, considering Dean Martin's reputation): Do you have a hangover remedy to recommend? what never fails for me is to drink water until you have to go to the bathroom to flush the system

Kids would think that being trapped in an elevator was awesome. Oh my. Just the thought makes me dizzy.

The Ocean's movies really are quite clever. I love all that witty dialog.

Thank God you had a doctor who listened!

I love that Little Kwiz was up for the elevator adventure.
