Pick Yourself Up

WhatsApp

As I mentioned on Monday, I was surprised and rather flattered to find myself in the Sotheby's catalogue for last week's sale in New York of miscellaneous property of Barbara and Frank Sinatra. My fleeting appearance turned up re Lot 104, a set of personalized golf clubs with a leather bag bearing the inscription "The Thin One": 'The Thin One'—emblazoned on the present golf bag as well as some of the personalized golf balls—was an early Sinatra nickname that was eventually displaced by more familiar ones: The Voice, Ol' Blue Eyes, and The Chairman of the Board. But it had enough cachet still in 1962 that the composer and arranger Neal Hefti—perhaps best known for writing the themes to the The Odd Couple movie and TV series and the Batman ...

The Delightful Storybook Fashion

WhatsApp

Welcome to the final installment of our first festive Tale for Our Time this Christmas - a seasonal sampling from a beloved American classic by Louisa May Alcott, Little Women at Christmas. This concluding installment takes place one year on from yesterday's - another Christmas Day in an America at war, but one that brings the only present the four March sisters really wanted: Now and then, in this work-a-day world, things do happen in the delightful story-book fashion, and what a comfort that is. Half an hour after every one had said they were so happy they could only hold one drop more, the drop came. Laurie opened the parlor door, and popped his head in very quietly. He might just as well have turned a somersault and uttered an Indian ...

Welcome to the second episode of the first of The Mark Steyn Club's festive Tales for Our Time this Christmas. This weekend's entertainment is a seasonal sampling of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Elizabeth Lorenz, a First-Day Founding Member from Massachusetts, adds a Little Women vignette all of her own: Thank you so much for reading this story! The Orchard House where Louisa wrote this story is not far from where I live. My only daughter spent the years from 8 to around 16 volunteering there then learned to give tours and spent a few more years at that job. During the Christmas season the girls who volunteer and some of the ladies who give tours all dress in their hoop skirts and mid 19th century attire for the tours which take a ...

Little Women at Christmas

WhatsApp

Welcome to the Christmas season at SteynOnline. If you're short of gift ideas, we have some bargains galore among this year's Steynamite Christmas specials - and as always we will have a full panoply of seasonal programming in the days ahead. As I've emphasized since we launched The Mark Steyn Club last year, our regular content will always be free to everyone around the world, but we are admitting Club members to a few experimental features which, in the event they're sufficiently non-incompetent, we may eventually make more widely available. Tales for Our Time is one such - my series of monthly audio adventures ...
