Several folks asked to see a picture of JoEll’s new baby. Here he is.- little Gabe Fricke.
The Fricke’s have a tradition in their house that all the kid’s names start with the letter “G.” Gabe has two older siblings, Gabrielle and Geb. They didn’t go for my first choice in baby names – “Gil” (after John Gill). The possible Finding Nemo allusion scared them off. I think I’ll call him “Goober” instead (after Goober Pyle).
