Would you liek a hint? I have one hint that I can give you...well I think but only if you want it.

They say home is where the heart is. That must mean my home is ontop of an Angel getting ready to fly.

A math one:
By moving one of the following digits, make the equation correct. 62 - 63 = 1

A riddle like one:
You have a fox, a chicken and a sack of grain. You must cross a river with only one of them at a time. If you leave the fox with the chicken he will eat it; if you leave the chicken with the grain he will eat it. How can you get all three across safely?

Both are hard!

My first thought is that old Ray Stevens song "I'm my own grandpa" .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

For the math one-Do you mean you SWITCH the numbers? Or what do you mean by move it?

For the chicken one: Take the chicken across then come back and take the grain across and bring the chicken back then take the fox accross and come back then take the chicken :)

1-Take the chicken over
2-Come back empty
3-Take the grain over
4-Come back with the chicken
5-Take the fox over
6-Come back empty
7-Take the chicken over :)

LOL, I'll go ahead and give mine up since it's falling behind in the posts. The person that mine is talking about would be my son.

I have no brothers or sisters so "my father's son" could only mean me. Therefore, I am this man's father so he is my son.

(even though I'm a girl )

smrobs, father and son right?

fuadtegan take the chicken first then take the fox, put the chicken back in the boat and take it back, put the chicken on land and grab the grain take it across then take the chicken again

Rock and Ride his mother died in child birth, his father was watching so it happened "before" him and he became a minister or something and officiated his sister's wedding?

ETA ooops you guys posted while I was figuring them out

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Should You Be Institutionalized?

During a visit to a mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criteria is that defines if a patient should be institutionalized.

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub. Then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask the patient to empty the bathtub."

well... what would you do??
