Caption contest: Stefanie Powers in Cuba




Here's the latest dispatch from our favorite overseas commander -- Jeff in Cuba:

I thought I'd share my brush with an early 80's TV star, "Jennifer Hart" herself, the lovely Stefanie Powers. She was in town for our big Christmas parade, and I got the chance to talk to her a little bit about wildlife conservation. That's part of my job down here and she's still very active in the wildlife foundation she set up with William Holden in Kenya.

The goofy smile on my face is not so much related to our success in propagating the endangered Cuban boa, as it is to how spastic I can be around celebrities. It's a good thing I don't have your jobs.

Anyway, she's a very classy and gracious lady (and looking pretty good one month past her 65th birthday!), and still has some killer Broadway-style pipes. She sang carols with the kids at the end of the parade and it was a very nice, old-school USO sort of moment.
