Thank you @pgn 

A bit of a mixed bag of questions this time - some easier [?] and a couple of head scratchers.

Hope you, and everyone else, likes some - if not all - the categories and questions 😀

Looking at your questions this morning @Mi-Amigo 

I like mythology find it amusing.  I play chess so should know this, this is my chess set on top of my Victorian work box, I renovated this box and relined it with blue "parachute " silk, sent to me from the far east.  Thought you may like to see some photos. The chess pieces are in the French Regency style

 The pieces were specially ordered for my board because they are small squares, they are 32mm sq. The chess pieces are 30mm dia.

I find the different styles of chess pieces very interesting,  more so than the chess game!

Movies, no no...Hurley dress wouldn't commit that info to memory.  Pop answers in later...bye TallTrees
