    I am a window, I am a lamp, I am clouded, I am shining, and I am coloured; set in white, I fill with water and overflow. I say much, but I have no words. What am I?

    Correct again Chitweed.

    Have you read the Stephen King novel The Gunslinger too?

    I have read just a few Stephen King novels, but not that one. Its my husbands favorite series. I will have to see if he recognizes it.

    For me the hints that caught my 'eye' were the 'windows', 'say much but no words', and 'water'.

    Great riddle! That Stephen King could really be something, if he just applied himself.
    :)

    Fine, I'll do it myself but I don't know any hard ones.

    A boy must use his boat to get across the river. With him he has his dog, a rabbit, and bunch of flowers for his mother. Only the boy and two items can fit into the boat at one time. How can he get everyone across safely with nothing being eaten by something else?

    Can't he just transport the dog and flowers over first and then go back for the rabbit? I know I'm missing a rule in this riddle however :rolleyes:

    Now there is a blond joke for Capt Kirk! I told it wrong...oops. He can only have ONE item with him at a time. But like I said I'm no good at this and it will take about 30 seconds longer for you to figure out the new twist. Sorry but maybe someone will come up with a better one.

    - Transport rabbit
    - Come back empty-handed
    - Transport flowers
    - Come back with rabbit
    - Transport dog
    - Come back empty-handed
    - Transport rabbit

    See Frank I knew you would get it, once I told it right to start with.
