September 7, 1950
Margaret Ellen “Peggy” Noonan (born September 7, 1950) is an American author of seven books on politics, religion, and culture, and a weekly columnist for The Wall Street Journal. She was a primary speech writer and Special Assistant to President Ronald Reagan and in her political writings is considered a Republican.
Anyway, Mock, Paper, Scissors Salutes Peggy Noonan! Yes, Axel Grease and I decided to throw a little bash for Nooner and her friends…
Everyone was having clean, wholesome fun singing some of the Nelson Riddle Orchestra arrangements of Frank Sinatra on her home Karaoke system:
It was going OK until some of her rowdier pals showed up:
Not everyone was able to keep up with Noonan at the Mai Tai bar
…and no one could go as low under the limbo stick!
And then the first cake arrived…
The second cake arrived…
…but no one cared for it.
The surprise guest arrived in time…
…to have the cake Nooner baked especially for him.
