Riddle Me
1 - What has one eye but cannot see?
2 - What do you call an old snowman?
3 - I roar like thunder, as I rise higher,
While breathing fire, a wingless wonder.
What am I?
My husband and I purchased an old home in
Northern Colorado from two elderly sisters.
Winter was fast approaching and I was concerned
about the house¡¯s lack of insulation.
¡°If they could live here all those years, so can
we,¡± my husband confidently declared.
One November night, the temperature plunged to
below zero and we woke up to find interior walls
covered with frost.
My husband called the sisters to ask how they
had kept the house warm. After a rather brief
conversation, he hung up.
¡°Well?¡± I asked.
¡°For the past 30 years,¡± he muttered, ¡°they¡¯ve
gone to Phoenix for the winter.¡±

Every dawn begins with me, At dusk I¡¯ll be
the first you see, And daybreak couldn¡¯t come
without, What midday centers all about, Dais-
es grow from me, I¡¯m told, And when I come,
I end all cold, But in the sun I won¡¯t be found,
Yet in each day I¡¯ll be around.
