Gabriel Simon Edward Hagel, son of Cognoscenti Poky Little Puppy Brian Hagel.
Brian picked me up at the airport when I flew to Saskatchewan recently
and mentioned that he and his wife were expecting their first child.
I asked about the name. Brian said his wife wanted to
wait to name the child until after she had seen it.
Neither of them knew this to be
an ancient Jewish custom.
It was great seeing you in Regina.
I thought you might like to know that
Gabriel Simon Edward Hagel was born
on Feb 19th at 3:49pm.
Both mom and baby are doing fine;
we upheld the Jewish tradition and
named him once we saw him.
It is indeed a magical world;
now the time for exploring begins.
