Reply Paul July 7, 2019 Heirlessness Reply Mike Bryant July 7, 2019 Close… Brian Douthit July 7, 2019 You got it! It’s hair. Very nice job! And nice complimentary riddle! Reply Paul July 7, 2019 My guess for Brian’s riddle is: the presidency of the United States. Reply Philip Keefe July 7, 2019 Heir apparent? Reply Mike Bryant July 7, 2019 Close enough. The first is a hairy parent… the second has NO hair apparent, and the third, of course, is the heir apparent. Reply Brandon Lee July 7, 2019 This is a good one Reply Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
