I admit I didn't read every single post on this thread but I noticed that Isaias was spelled like Spanish speaking people spell it rather than the usual form we hear Isaiah.

And that is ALL I thought.

All of the folks I have met around The Villages that have Spanish as their first language have been nice folks.

They know a lot more English than I know Spanish and I admire that and a lot of other "little" things too. I painted pictures of two of the grandchildren of the couple who helped to paint our house. Their grandkids are adorable and I didn't do them justice. Many people who now live here used to live in Spanish speaking areas and my grandparents used to live in a German speaking area.

That is all there is to that.

We missed having a Hurricane Grace or Henry. It is all just fun to watch the names every year. Not so much fun to have a real Hurricane, no matter what you call him/her.
