    His Hand On My Shoulder

    My one and only brush with greatness was in Des Moines, Iowa, around 1983 give or take, at Julio's Jazz Bar & Grill. A lot of us from The Graphic Corporation went there after seeing Robin's performance at the Civic Center. We were so jazzed up after the show and were sitting at a big table by the front door and all of a sudden Robin Williams walks in! He walked by our table and I said to him, "We love you, Robin!". He replied, as he touched my shoulder, "I love you too!" And I swore I'd never wash that shoulder again! That's my only touch with greatness and I'm proud and honored it was with the great Robin Williams. "We love you, Robin". Thank you for making us laugh and for stopping by To tell us you love us.
