My Style Guru - Mr. Rogers
I just learned that today - March 20 - is "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" Day, on which everyone is asked to wear their favorite sweater.
As a child, I called Mr. Rogers "Mr. Shodos" (which I think meant Mr. Shoulders - not that it makes any more sense) and watched his show regularly. I was especially fond of the cable car, living as I did in San Francisco - and those puppets had an intense hold on me.
I wear sweaters - some frumpy, some stylish, but none covered with cat hair - almost every single day. To prove it, my colleague Maureen took this picture of me today.
Mr. Rogers, I love you.
