Without a bridle, or a saddle,
across a thing I ride a-straddle.
And those I ride, by help of me,
though almost blind, are made to see.
What am I?




What Next?

Nice, easy to get, though it may have been the fact that I'm always conscious of my own.

Very good one. I kept thinking it was me doing the riding and what was I riding on, but the clue was as plain as the nose on my face. HA!

That was an interesting riddle and it brought back some WONDERFUL memories for me. I'll never forget the first time I wore a pair of glasses! I was 7 years old and all the weay home from the doctor's office I kept exclaiming, "Look at all the things I can see!" It was a thrilling moment. That was at least 30 years ago! Have a wonderful day to all my friends who are 30+ too!

Easy but magnifying I caught that little fib by Gayle, we know she is no older than 35.

Doehead, I didn't know you were such a gentleman!!

Riddle--well done.
My brain sometimes--burnt.

"almost blind"

Really??? In that same sense those who take their shoes off are "almost naked" without them I guess. Oh well.

Nice. Took me a few minutes to get past trying to think of the thing being ridden and instead look for the thing doing the riding.

Doehead, you should know that Gayle and I were born on the same day, so I guess that makes me younger too.
The teaser was quite easy for me, as I now have to wear reading glasses. It was very well written.
