### RIDDLE ME, RIDDLE ME, RIDDLE ME REE

SCROLL SLOWLY--THE ANSWERS ARE DIRECTLY UNDER THE RIDDLES!!

Canadian geese are known to fly in a "V" shaped as they migrate across the county. The lead goose in the "V" cuts through the air making it easier for the rest of the geese behind him. As that lead goose becomes tired, he will drop off and join one of the sides and a new lead goose will take over. This is done several times as they are flying long distances. So if you look up in the sky and see a "V" shape of geese and one side is longer than the other, do you know what that means?

A: There are more geese on that side.

Some people wonder what their purpose is in life--mine is to entertain you----fishducky

1. A three L-ama = a really big fire? I don't get it.
I knew the mashed potato one though, we ate a lot of mashed potato when the kids were little and potatoes were getting scarce before shopping day.

1. It's a 3 alarmer--a 3 alarm fire. It's not necessary that you understand everything I write--I certainly don't!!

2. I will bet a silk pyjama that you have never seen a three el lllama. And I am with River, I don't get the version you have given us.
My favourite riddle (other than those you have given us): What is red and invisible?

1. You owe me some pj's--& I like your riddle!!

1. It must be an American term--the 2 ladies above are from Down Under!!

3. Lol - I get it now! Took awhile

1. Glad you got here--I saved you a seat!!

4. Dear Fishducky, I like riddles although I'm a dunce at solving them!They always bring out the admiration I have for minds that can create them. The tuna in the mercury just tickled my innards! Peace.

1. Glad you were able to get your innards tickled--they can be hard to reach!!

5. Oh, no! If I have to do a math problem to get into Heaven, I hope The Hurricane can accompany me as far as the gate to give me the answer. Then she can go back home when I'm in.

Love,
Janie

1. I'll be there with Nameless!!

6. Well I got 100% wrong but they did tickle me.
I HATE those train math problems, I'd never make it through the gates.:))

1. All WE can do is hope they don't have them!!

7. You've convinced me that I should endeavor to make as many mistakes as possible. Finally a logic I can understand.

1. So far, it's worked for me!!

8. I am horrible at riddles, but I have to say that the llama joke is much easier when said out loud with a boston accent. :)

1. My mom was born in Lynne, MA so I guess that's how I heard it!!
