My Brush with Greatness

One of my brushes with greatness was when I encountered the great film actor Henry Fonda in Rome. 

It was 1973 and I was on a scholarship from Columbia University to study architecture in Europe. 
I was thirsty, so I headed out on a back street near the Spanish Steps to buy some agua minerale. 

Mr. Fonda was walking rather furtively, and I suspect that he got more attention than he wanted. 
He actually had his hat pulled down over his face, but I could still tell who he was.
I gave him a high five and he responded with a hurried smile and a high five back. 

I don't like to intrude on anyone's privacy so I didn't try to chat with the guy. 
He didn't look too happy.

Keep hammerin'...
