#8. Goofy

You can count on Gale to do something goofy just about every day! I can’t tell you how many times Gale has turned my frown upside down with her well-honed self-deprecating sense of humour.

Gale’s nickname in her family is “dipstick“, bestowed upon her by her mother Laverne (God rest her soul, we all miss you!). This name was earned for Gale’s propensity to do goofy things – which I’m sure Gale has secretly “played up” on many occasions, for the sole sake of seeing others laugh. She has always been happy to be the butt of the joke as long as she can see family and friends laugh because of it.

Perhaps it is because she got the nickname “dipstick” from her Mom that she wears it like a badge of honour. Regardless, I know I, and many others, have benefitted from hours and hours of laughter because of Gale’s unselfish willingness to incite joy at her own expense.
