berley’s french accent is no more

My friend, Berley Stabler, whom I told you about a year ago, will be on ABC Thursday nigh according to this GreenvilleOnline.com article.

Berley had a stroke a couple years ago. When he woke up, gone was his Southern accent and in it’s place was a French accent.

I’m not kidding.

It was really weird hearing him speak! He still said his Southern slang, just with a French accent he couldn’t control.

So Thursday night on ABC, 10 pm EST, there is scheduled a short segment on him and this “foreign accent syndrome”. He’s fully recovered now. Had dinner with him last time I was back in Simpsonville. He’s still a great guy, just sounds like himself again!

Tune in if you can.

BTW, the brass group he’s a part of at church is lead by my father and my brother-in-law is also in the group.

    Thanks for your comments about Berley. I was one of Berleys roommates during college and had lost track of him. These articles helped me track Berley down and I spoke to him just last week.

    I now live in the same county Berley was raised in and we hope to have a reunion in the future.

    Again Thanks.
