This is a riddle more for me than you
What do you think my Coat of Arms do?
If I'd have been born in 1900
A WASP my name would be numbered

Wait. There is Blue and Gold which represents my Navy ... but when was this thing made?

Urgh... It makes me all crazy.

Google image thinks its the Hayes family crest: http://www.houseofnames.com/hayes-family-crest

The three stars must represent something across the chest.

I'm thinking about starting a new Thread. "Man vs The Machine" Machine.

Well you know.

Believe me there are days I just want to climb on my bike and ride! I dont belong to any clubs and am to old, got to much family in my life to do that, Just need to ride sometimes.

This one will take me more time
I don't have a clever rhyme
I love to lose myself on the road
I've seen too many squished like a toad
There are dozens if crosses
marking our losses
yet just one I watched dropped
across the pavement smeared our loss

Not my favorite but worth a stab:
If you had three apples and four oranges in one hand and four apples and three oranges in the other hand, what would you have?

Not sure Dave answered LRB's question
But answer he gave was a pretty great suggestion
Since The Rat gave a big thumbs up at that
I think LRB was tipping his hat
and saying its good to move on to the next one
if so, here is my riddling question



When fat it is slow, when thin it is fast
The longer the day the more it will last.
Tall when it is young, short as it gets old
It's gone with the wind when it gets too bold.

A very good riddle Dan,
So many answers almost work
the correct one I cannot lurk. (?)
I'll keep pondering until I can


edit: I think I have a solution, or a Flicker of one
if so, the second line is quite cleverly done
