Hi, Thank you both for your kind words.

No, I have not published anything , it is just something I try my hand at occasionally.

Pat, how do you under stand:'quaint' in this context?

I used it as 'strange ' or like, in Portuguese, 'esquesito'.

I have now looked it up. When used as in a 'quaint vllage' it is not  what I meant.

I meant is as odd.
