Oh Papa! “In my teenage years, in 1959, at the Festival of San Fermin, in Pamplona, Spain I met Ernest Hemingway and swapped botas with him—a tradition in which you toss your goat skin pouch sealed with pitch and filled with wine to your acquaintance or friend, and, at arm’s length, each squirts the wine around his nose and it runs down into the mouth. I was there running the bulls in that famous year of the mano a mano in which world’s Numero Uno, The Great Dominguín, was defeated by his brother-in-law, Antonio Ordóñez. I have Ordóñez’s and Hemingway’s autographs on a bullfight ticket.”
