I have many lodgers including these three, Which on losing their heads new things will they be, One turns into a runner, you'll not see it walk, Another, beheaded, is purely all talk, The third, if its noggin you neatly extract, Shows only a side, (no limbs and no back) If you would examine the heads where they fell There'd be five hundred, parking and West as well. What am I?

Very nice, Oscar I don't want to give away the answer to such a nice riddle just yet, but I will say, by way of a hint, that I got the answer from a little birdie And I can also confirm carrier_of_the_arch's theory that the last line does indeed refer to D, P, and W

 Posted: Fri May 13, 2011 6:36 am    Post subject: 180 How about if I told you that the little birdie was an Eagle? Also, I could be wrong but if you've worked out what one of the three "lodgers" is, but are having trouble with the other two, you're probably barking up the wrong tree. As soon as I worked out the first one, it was immediately obvious what the other two were.

 Posted: Fri May 13, 2011 12:50 pm    Post subject: 183 Well, since I thought I had one but it didn't help me get the others, it's probably wrong anyway. I was thinking that the third one was 'W - edge'. I don't see how that fits with lodger, though.

LOL. I read that hint and I thought, I HATE that sort of hint. Then I got it.

#44, continued:
I'm often over, at breakfast.

I've got a feeling that this is particularly true if we're talking about breakfast on Sunday morning?

Good one Oscar!

 Posted: Mon May 30, 2011 7:50 am    Post subject: 198 Well done, guys! I've added Zag's new line, plus an extra one, which should give the game away to anyone still working on it: 44. I'm like a pie, I come and go, I'm found with money And the eye I'm on I'm often over, at breakfast And I'm big in New Orleans. What am I? And here's a little diversion based on 3iff's answer above (so don't look there if you want to make this slightly harder) 46. I'm found on the eye they say Or I'm carried by a jay I'm only very little I'm called a or
