  • "If you have a searching partner, best to have them wait in the car."

    What? It's not like you're robbing a bank or anything.
    Your search-partner is your sidekick.
    You guys are buddy-buddy, right ?
    Why make them wait in the car, when you're in this together ?
    And besides, Forrest has said to take a buddy or two with you.
    So why have them wait in the car?

    You've teamed-up with them and you're in cahoots with them, and now you're supposed to have them wait in the car ?
    C'mon, this is your partner-in-crime we're talking about. Your wingman.
    And now you're going to have them stay in the waiting area ? Why ?

    Doesn't make sense. Unless . . . you're using them for a decoy ,

    • During WWII many pilots would chew gum and some would even take their chewed gum and place it on the wings of their planes.

      It was a way to "tip the scales of luck in their favor" by tipping the weight of the plane a little. We don't think commercial pilots can do that nowadays, though.

      • I was going to post this in JChere 's thread but, I didn't feel like dealing with the know-it-all who shows up to tell others how wrong they are.
        So . . .

        "When writing a riddle poem, begin with the answer."
        "When is water warm ? When it's . . ."
        http://www.readwritethink.org/files/...iteARiddle.pdf

        "Perhaps the most traditional riddles are those which use the first person, and say 'I am' , 'I HAVE' , or 'I do'. "
        "Think about how you could describe something . . . which is difficult, but not impossible . . ."
        https://ypn.poetrysociety.org.uk/wor...try-challenge/

        "A riddle is a statement, question, or phrase that has a double meaning."
        https://examples.yourdictionary.com/...f-riddles.html

        "A riddle is a statement or a question with a hidden meaning that forms a puzzle to be solved."
        "Writing a riddle is the reverse of solving a puzzle - you have to start with the answer."
        https://www.poetry4kids.com/news/writing-riddles/

        "A riddle is a type of poetry that describes something without actually naming what it is, leaving the reader to guess."
        https://www.forwardpoetry.co.uk/riddle.php
        ================================================== =============

        So, a riddle gives you the answer, up front.
        It then gives a description.
        And then, it asks you to identify what it is talking about.

        As I HAVE GONE alone in there . . .
        So WHY IS IT THAT I MUST GO ?
        Answer/Question.

        I'll say it again, the first stanza is crucial to solving the riddle. imo.

        and with my treasures bold/and leave my trove
        I can keep my secret where/the answers I already know

        The secret to the answer lies in the question.

        All of the above is simply observations on my part.

        • I like that observation RT it is line with the way I have been looking at this

            • Put in below the home of Brown.

              Maybe if we twist it a little we can see something different that, to my knowledge, hasn't been discussed.

              If you 'put in', what are you doing ?
              Launching ?
              Coming ashore ?
              Landing ?
              Stopping ?
              Beginning ?

              The list of possibilities has been discussed at length over the years.
              Opinions are welcome, as I'm curious to see if anyone comes up with the same possibility.
              It's rather unique, as I've not seen it suggested on any of the blogs.

              And no, I'm not fishing for clues. That's not how I roll.

                          Your effort will be worth the cold
                          So hear me all and listen good . . .

                          Not far, but too far to walk.
                          And take it in the canyon down,
                          Begin it where warm waters halt.
                          ===========================

                          To 'put in' your two sense, is to offer 'input'.
                          Which is all I'm doing here.

                              • The loudmouth check-out guy was on something, and it probably wasn't Ovaltine.

                                As I've mentioned before, these are hints to 'dope'.
