Only a little more than a week after we celebrated the birthday of Dean Martin Show alumna Tara Leigh, we’re raising our glasses again — this time, in honor of one of Tara’s Dingaling Sisters-in-arms: the lovely, charming and talented Taffy Jones. And just as Dean dropped in for Tara’s birthday party (faithful viewers of his series doubtless remember how he liked to make an entrance from high above), we knew he also wouldn’t miss Taffy’s big splash for the world.

Nor, for that matter, would Taffy’s colleague and longtime pal Michelle DellaFave, or her many other friends. But that there’d be a stellar turnout for this event should come as no surprise. During her time as a regular performer on Dean’s program, Taffy worked with many of the biggest stars of the day; she’s also lent her wonderful singing voice to The Doodletown Pipers and other musical ventures; and she has a terrific, close-knit family of which she’s justifiably very proud. In addition, she’s been a good friend to all of us here at Dean, Golds and Dings since our very beginnings, over 6 years ago.

So, even though Christmas is still a few weeks away, we know that there’s no need to wait until the 25th of the month to feel merry — Taffy makes us feel that way every day of the year.

Happy Birthday, Dear Taffy, and Many, Many More.
