I am no good at riddles myself. Hope you enjoyed them!

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 279th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.

  3. I am so bad at these. I don't think I could even guess one. I think I'm impaired!

  4. River is the only one I got right off. I didn't get a keyboard even with the answer, and I think the ones that are letters of the alphabet are cheating.

  5. #8 really had me stumped. What a cool TT. I will share many of these (and may take the credit).

  7. I enjoy riddles... but only got the river one.

    I am so impressed that you have been doing this for more than five years! 279 times. You are amazing!

    If I do this once or twice a year I think am doing good... but I enjoy reading what others post.

    You may know my daughter Sherilee, and wife Shirley who post more frequently.

  8. Thank you for resurrecting my grandmother, who used to pose (most of) these when I was a kid. Haven't heard some of them in decades. Cool.

  10. I have no patience. I gave up on most of them in ten seconds. I'm bad.

  11. I'm terrible at riddles too, but I did manage a couple of answers.

  12. I'm not a good guesser, but I enjoy riddles after I see the answer and how clever it was. In movies, like The Hobbit, they often use riddles as a way to win something or escape harm. In these cases, riddles make me very anxious because I would be dead if my life depended on answering one.
