Well, Duke, I believe that you were 'half' right-- that is the 'wheel' half. I believe that the answer is a wheelbarrow. Unfortunately, it is something that I am all too familiar with. Dirt, fire wood, building debris, rocks, mulch, bricks, concrete, people, tools...you name it, I've wheelbarrowed it-- too many times!

Oh yes, Misty and quite a fun story to witness and 'live' too. I won't go into details but let's just say 'Please keep all hands, arms, feet, legs and heads inside the ride, at all times!' Those sudden stops are quite a bit more interesting and hilarious (sometimes a wee bit painful too-- but in a fun way) when there's live cargo on board!

Nope, all ten because they're still in there. Now that I say it out loud it seems pretty weird, but I just found this riddle online.

10, because unless the two that died have decomposed, then there are ten. The three that swam away cannot swim out of the tank, unless the tank connects to an open body of water.

1. A man is found lying dead, face down in the middle of the desert.He is wearing a backpack.His ribs are crushed.The post mortem shows that he died 2 months ago.Yet no one has crossed the dessert for 3 months. How did he die?

2. I push my car around a corner and find out that I am bankrupt. What happened?

3. I'm moregood than god, more evil than the devil. The poor have me and the rich need me. If you eat or drink me, you will die. If you jump on me, you will fall. If you love me, you're heartless, but if you hate me, you're filled with love. What am I?

Except, Esperanza, the dead fish are still there. Bloop, bloop...

Here's one from me:
Black as coal,
And white as snow;
She travels, but has no feet;
She speaks, but has no mouth.
