My Brush with Greatness


In 1958 I was living in Seville, Spain, in a lovely house in the Barrio de Santa Cruz.
One morning during that winter I walked from our little street into the Patio de Banderas.

There was a horse and carriage parked at the curb, there was no driver, but an elderly man
with a large shawl around his shoulders was sitting in the carriage. I stopped,  thinking I
recognized him but I was unsure. I was a bit incredulous as I could not believe my eyes.

My back was to the wall of the building but I was afraid to approach I finally drew up
my courage and approached the carriage.

I asked, “Excuse me sir, may I shake your hand?”

He nodded, I stepped forward and shook hands with Winston Churchill,
he thanked me, my response was, “Sir, thank you.”
