Maybe that was too easy. Lol, your turn!

A Russian had three sons. The first, named Rab, became a lawyer; the second, Ymra, became a soldier . The third became a sailor; what was his name?

Correct! Rab backwards is Bar (for the Lawyer.) Ymra backwards is Army. Navy backwards is Yvan and that is where the 3rd son went.

You're a clever lot.
Shall I wait until I manage to solve a riddle to share one, or may I jump in at any time with a riddle?

Generally, it's "the person who answers gets to post the next one" but since this is a new forum, that's up to the owners.

Many thanks, Marcian! I have a favorite that I love to share.

No door to go in and eat

One stands alone. It dances upon the pillar each night. One and two, three and four, eight in turn join the dance. Yet never shall they meet as each stands alone on it's pillar.

The Greeks await the dancer's end. Yet they must wait too long.

What am I?
