Asking Cybill Shepherd Out Is A Misdemeanor

"She wore two scarves. One of wool to match her coat. The other of cotton to match her dress. She looked stunning. But anyone who dressed up for a Chaucer class would definitely not find me appealing."  

That's from, Sitting Behind Cybill Shepherd, a charming piece by Hal Sirowitz, former poet laureate of Queens.  I just came across it on Mr. Beller's Neighborhood.  Hal was lucky enough to get a view of Cybill's inspiring shoulder blades in 1968, the same year she graduated high school and won a career-launching modeling contest.

I wrote here about my love for Cybill.  At left, she demonstrates that her front is nothing to sneeze at either.
