He lived life large ...

I've always enjoyed Dom DeLuise ... he was fun to watch in his movie and tv appearances, and his passion for life, food, and laughter set him apart.

His passing at the age of 75 last week was marked quietly in the media with little fanfare ... perhaps because his biggest scandal was related to his appetite, he didn't catch the headlines and the gossip streams ...

I for one am appreciative of his talent, his enthusiasm, and most of all his infectious laugh ... I remember watching outtakes from Cannonballrun, or one of the movies with Bert Reynolds that has the latter busting up at Dom's antics ... such is the essence of life - "if you're not having fun, you're not doing it right ..."

Thanks for the memories Mr DeLuise ... you WILL be missed.
