Because of another one of these inexorably long three day weekends Tula’ the cat made sure that Security did not lower their standards.  The very lives of the guests at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa depended upon her watchfulness.  Her sharp glance, caught on camera, was meant for the Face of Everyman; once again caught napping.IMG_0009 (2)

Track and Field

Cheeky would often try to test the imbalance between his speed and the reaction time of the security cameras at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Little did he know that the Face of Everyman frequently updated the system with new algorithms created expressly to thwart the pesky rodent.  However, Everyman did succeed in signing Cheeky for the Spring track and field events.  He was a sure winner in the broad jump.

In a brief respite between rain showers Tula’ the cat toured the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa to check on the wellness of the songbirds.  the Face of Everyman bridled under the oversight.  His Tweets did not refer to her by name but the inference was not lost on his readers.IMG_0357 (2)


the Face of Everyman continued his search for someone, any one, who could lower the flood waters caused by incessant rains.  A “Grand Master” showed up but it turned out his forte’ was the ancient Chinese strategy game GO.  The folks at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa continued to wring their hands.  There was talk of building an ark.

Bambi was eager to start school. Alas, she was too large for the classrooms at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Montetorkie school.  the Face of Everyman told her about his idea of an alternative classroom: Computer Aided Instruction.  Details were sketchy but looked great on paper.  Everything should be in place the first week after Labor day.IMG_0590 (2)


Somebody sneezed.  The whole flock abandoned the buffet line at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. Escape was their only thought.  Each feared the other might be contaminated with some dreaded respiratory disease.  the Face of Everyman  had designated quarantine roosts and was awaiting test kits from the CDC.   IMG_0163

Oscar Night

Some Country Cousins got the last roost available at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  They were overjoyed when the Face of Everyman told them that they would be able to view the Oscars on the Jumbotron.  Truth be told they were asleep by Sundown.  IMG_0134 (2)
