"Another early Pegacycle Lady effort was a book of poems by the local poet and eccentric Bernard Forrest. Bernard had been an aerospace executive and had retired into lush creativity in Benedict Canyon in a house filled with ferns and orchids. Her Foot in My Hand is the sweet title of this book, and I still often quote the memorable title poem: 'She put her foot in my hand/ I said my dear Are you still doing that/and she smiled wanly'" (Victoria Dailey, The Lady Was Twenty-One: The Press of the Pegacycle Lady). 14 p. with an original watercolor by the author tipped in as the frontispiece.
