Happy Friday, or, as I will now be calling it, "SWCC corn on the cob night".
"After it was all over, he took us in the house and served us pancakes. Pancakes!"
wow. Are the Bielers still here/OK?

I got there a little before 3 and they were already open for business. Got my cantalope, corn, tomatoes and peaches just in time to walk home in the less torrential part of the latest downpour. BTW, the small lot adjacent to the park is being excavated right now for some purpose.

It's the Beilers, folks! Only "the English" would spell the name as Bielers!
they were shooting "you've got mail" one day in the park and there were tons of real looking fake flowers and this big guy sitting in the middle. I asked him what he was doing and h grunted - making a movie... i said i hoped they would put the park back as they found it.
Apparently i wasn't the only one because they referenced the upper west sider's protectiveness in the movie ( very funny). actually the studio gave a hefty grant to the park that kept it tended better than it would of been for some time.
So lets get someone to shoot a movie... then we can get more money...
If I have never heard the name pronounced, I have no way of guessing how it is spelled. If it's pronounced BEE-ler, it could be spelled Bieler or Biehler.
Now, how about we let beigones be beigones.
My son's first complete sentence was in Pennsylvania Dutch and it included the vowel shift -- thus, "nay" for "nein." The sentence (quasi-phonetically) was
"Nay nay ee vill net bett gaye," a variant on the German
"Nein, nein, ich will nicht zu Bett gehen", or
No, no, I don't want to go to bed!"
Now I can't wait 'til the market on Friday not only to stock up on more goodies but also to ask Jacob and Emma to tell us all how to correctly spell and pronounce their last name.
Available this week, in addition to produce, baked and canned goods:
Complete list at Julian Abele Park.
Stop by early tomorrow afternoon for the best selection. Market open 3PM-7PM.
