"When my wave started over on the Manhattan side just in back of me, the waves from the tugs were this high!" Mike E. September 9, 2006 around 1 pm after lunch at Grimaldi's at 19 Old Fulton Street in Brooklyn. That's right, I was eating pizza while the awards were being handed out. Who would have figured that I was gonna win! Not me, I, (along with everybody else) thought that it was just Top Ten -- no age group awards. Go figure, Hopefully they will mail the awards out.
Is there a prettier bridge in the world? Right now, Mike and Rob don't think so!
And, we even got Joan to pose with us.

The Manhattan Island Foundation, founded in 1993, organizes swimming events in the waters around Manhattan. Since its inception, the Foundation has attracted nearly 10,000 participants in more than 70 swimming races, thus helping to revive a local aquatic tradition that had been abandoned for nearly a century. The Brooklyn Bridge Swim was the last event for 2006 but don't you fear, 2007 will be here before we know it! And the first event in 2007 will be The Lady Liberty Swim on Sunday, May 27, 2007 -- something to think about on a cold winter's night.
