Einstein wrote this riddle early during the 19th century. He said 98% of the world could not solve it. Its not hard, you just need to pay attention and be patient.

I'll post the answer in a couple days.

Hey! I am so glad you found us. We have looked and looked for you guys but never did succeed in finding you. I loved reading your blogs. They are great.
I just read your blog post to Landen, I cried like a baby. You are such an example to me of faith. Thank you for that. We need to get in touch. Here is my e-mail loganxeeb@msn.com. Logan really misses Joey... he doesn't have too many friends or friends he talks about too much, but Joey really struck a cord with him and talks often about CSU and his friends Joey and Wray. Anyway so glad you found us keep in touch.
