Rope Trick

Rodney always delighted the onlookers at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa when he performed his East Indian Rope Trick.  the Face of Everyman saw it as even more remarkable that Rodney used the cascading waters of the Spring of Eternal Giving as a rope.  By this scheme he usually cadged a few drinks at the bar or won bus fare home.Rope Trick

Mayhem

The Three Delinquents were back for another night of mayhem in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Their frolicking knocked the Face of Everyman into the deepest depths.  When the EMTs revived the venerable sage he sputtered and vowed to seek revenge; somehow. IMG_0509 (2)

Tula’

Each morning the Lady of the Manor would descend the hill and tour the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  She came armed with a spiritual rod decorated with symbols to ward off attacks from Coyotes and to protect her cat Tula’.  the Face of Everyman gave her a verbal report of security intrusions during past 24 hours.  As usual he had slept soundly thru the night and based his report on a quick review of infrared images.  The cat made no comment.IMG_0119 (2)

Dollar Slots

The Shapeshifters were back.  They rarely stayed long at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa but their presence was a force of pure evil.  the Face of Everyman tried to be cordial but he knew that they could see thru his facade.  Two drinks at the bar and a pull on the dollar slots and they were gone.  Seemingly they took nothing of value.IMG_0331 (2).JPG

Bait Shop

the Face of Everyman charged a modest fee as a business consultant.  Charley was torn between going south for the winter with four or more months of glorious sunshine or staying here and keeping the Bait Shop open renting Rods, Reels and DVDs.  Two good Salmon runs and it would be worth the months of cold dreary weather experienced by those who remained at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  The venerable sage considered all options and suggested Charley go south.  Everyman would store the DVDs in his Man Cave.IMG_0137 (2)

Mantra

the Face of Everyman never felt so vulnerable as when Terwilliger delivered his weekly diatribe on the poor quality and variety of food at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  It usually began over peanut butter and suet.  Week old suet blocks should be disposed of as well as any peanut butter not consumed.  ” T ” went on about the dearth of bugs and spiders.  Slowly the venerable sage spoke the mantra used in his Tibetan Mind Control Exercises.  He retreated into a deep, almost lifeless, slumber until it was safe to surface.  Usually about the cocktail hour.IMG_0154
