Monolo, the race director, gives finisher trophies to all. The kids, Bianca, Isabella, Maya, and me, swim merrily. Adrianna two kids under her arms enjoys the day. Janie and Eddie take in the pools side sights while Meserita and Edgar support us all. Edgar Allen and son join Day full of smiles. Matt and Vanessa as usual chase after Liam and Wayatt. Melissa, the Half Marathon victor, takes a break she has well earned while Vinnie and Gabriel rejoice over finally finding Denie the last finisher of the race. Rachel the hospitality host serves food and drink.
Pauline makes the rounds greeting the family and reads a proclamation form the Mayor denoting “Tom Kline Day in Key West”.
My sisters Diane and Jane finally relax. Steve is still hard at work recording the event for prosperity. Doris, as always, coordinates, facilitates and helps make everyone proud to be here.
And then…….That’s All Folks!
