Nice to know that one person, at least, agrees with me!! Do I recall correctly that you're an Ohioan?? What area? The reason I ask, one of my grandmothers was born in Ohio (though I'm not sure she grew up there), and she spent a lot of time reading to me when I was a toddler, and would have been a main source of my version of English. Re your name-- which you challenged us to place ethnically: first thought Italian, but on second thought, perhaps Polish, and it might even be a corrupted or spelling version of Wojtyla (with barred l), the Pope's name, [voI't1wa] I think. There are quite a few (W,V)ojt(u,y)la's in the Detroit area. Am I close?? :-) Regards, Roger.
