Hi Joe-- you wrote:

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?? :-)
