Gabriel has always loved books. He could sit for hours and stare at the pictures. I had him on my shoulder when I pulled out my address book to look up a number. He immediately popped down to take a look at the pictures of the horses. To appease him, I made up a story to tell him as he checked out each page, picture and writing. Such a silly goose. I guess he is a chip off the ole block because I have had a love affair with books my whole life.
