I love your signature, Bragolandune. That's hilarious!

Ahhh yes, an umbrella.

OK, I have a couple new ones... I put more than one because they are easy:

"What is dark but made out of light?"

"The Moon is my father,
the Sea is my mother;
I have a million brothers,
I die when I reach land."

Wow, I stayed away for too long. I missed a whole riddle!
Probably just as well, I can't solve them to save my life!

That's from Dealing with Dragons, isn't it? I haven't read it, but I have a friend who used to say that all the time.

OK, I have a new one...

"I cannot fly, yet I have wings.
I can make you laugh, cry, or even sing.
Sometimes I am clothed and other times naked.
My purpose is to let your senses awaken."

and another...

"I am tall, short, fat, thin;
I may keep you out
Or I may keep you in."

I made both of these up, so hopefully they are not too terrible [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

Tigerlily, is the second one a keyhole?

I have one that I made up.

First is last
And last is first
Start is end
And end is start.

I'm not really sure where this quote came from, i found it through a quotes website. Thanks for the compliments on it though [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Tigerlily, is the first one an imagination? or maybe a dream?

Is the first emotion, Tigerlily?
I agree with Starbreeze about the second maybe being a keyhole. That, or a door.

Starbreeze and Susan... the answer I have is not a keyhole, but that also works very well. You are on the right track [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Bragolandune... the first one is neither. It is an actualy physical object. Those are both good answers, though.

tigerlilly - is the first one imagination? is the second one a gate?

i'm tired and going to bed - here's an old question - how do you keep a fish from smelling?

here's another silly question:
(in case you should find yourself elvishly standing by the sea)

why can you never go hungry at the beach?

(i can hear even gollum groaning at this one!)

I have a rather corny riddle that I made up myself:


What is there, but then is not
Is always chased but can't be caught
Born of wind and water used for cleaning
Holds a rainbow, though not raining.

Yep, it is a circle.

It's not a keyhole? Oh, don't know then, I'm really not very good at this.

Bragolandune - you are the closest. The answer is not alive, but can be brought to life (if you get what I mean).

piosenniel - you are very close with gate.

Starbreeze, you are good. You've gotten more right than I have.

Also, to keep a fish from smelling you hold its nose!

The answer to the first one is not music, but music can be part of it. Do you want a hint???

Well, it is a physical object, as I have said earlier, I think. Ummm... if I give too good of a hint I will give it away. Let's say that it is usually very large, but it can also be very small, depending on where it is. Geez, now I am talking in riddles.
If no one gets it soon I will give a big hint! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Sorry, I forgot I posted a riddle. You all are really close but not close enough. What do you usually put in water to make it clean better? And, when that sort of water is combined with a puff of air, what results?

The answer of "a theatre" is sooooooo close, it is something in the theatre (seeing as how a theatre means the lobby, seats and everything). You are so close the water is boiling!
