Dean repays gesture big time.

When singers Dean Martin and Sonny King were first starting out, they had little money. They would go to a small coffee shop that served two donuts, coffee, and orange juice for a nickel.

Sonny would stay outside while Dean would go in and ordered the nickle breakfast. Dean would eat one donut and drink half the coffee and juice. Then Sonny would go in and say, "Hey Dean, you've got an important call." Dean would say, "Okay, why don't you finish my breakfast." Sonny would take Dean's seat, eat the other donut and drink the remaining coffee and juice.

The next time, Sonny would go in first and order, and then Dean would come in and tell him that he had a phone call and finish Sonny's breakfast.

After doing this several times, the manager caught on and said, "Hey, you guys don't have to do this. Just come in together and I'll serve you both for a nickel. You can pay me back sometime in the future."

Years later, Dean and Sonny searched for the manager and gave him $25,000 each.

I LOVE this story! It has a very deep meaning. It shows how a little bit of caring goes a long way. The manager's kindness was appreciated and rewarded years later. I am a Dean Martin fan, so I will be sure to share this story with my friends! If you have time, stop over and visit my authors den. You might enjoy some of the stories. I look forward to having you visit my den soon!

A Beautiful Story, Thanks this is really nice to hear about their life! Movie stars are like the "untouchable" and when we hear and they are and be like "normal" people, it's really nice.
This story really does have a very nice message for the season upon us and everyday. Thanks. Kindness is always remembered and can make all the difference in the world, bringing peace, save a life, and save and bring a smile!!
Thank You Paul,
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family

Fabulous; Dino had a coolness of character like no other but who else could fill even the Chairman of the board with such esteem? A perfect example of what made Dino so special.

A wonderful reminder that cultivating friends is an art and goes to the principal of Dale Carnegie's book.
