This riddle was posed to a group from my office, and for the life of me I cannot find a solution.

A man had his grandchildren visiting on a very rainy day. The kids were starting to get antsy and bored. To keep them busy the grandfather said "I have hidden a $20 bill somewhere in this house. I will only give you one hint as to the location and if you find it we will go straight to the toy store". His one hint was a riddle:


On the opposite side of 8 + 8
On top of 1 of 3

Where did he hide the $20?


Any ideas?

Well, if this is right for the first clue it should get all our minds moving in the right direction. Hopefully it's right for the whole riddle :)

That would work except it says "On top of 1 of 3" Though it is our best option yet.
What about

On top of 1 of 3 piano pedals makes total sense. I sincerely doubt the riddle would require us to guess his age. And the cane, legs thing doesn't work. The riddle says on top, not in. And even it were on top, the kids would see it right away.
