Romans in the Snow

Stephen Boyd said when he left for “The Fall of the Roman Empire,” that he looked forward to working in sunny Spain for the winter.

Now he writes from a mile-high location in the Sierra Guadarrama Mountains 40 miles north of Madrid:

“Sunny Spain, ” writes Boyd. “The snow is up to my waist –the temperature is around zero.

“I could take it if I could wear long underwear but you can’t put them on under a Roman toga.”

Jan 27, 1963 The Tennessean
