Marceau stopped by to see the Face of Everyman.    He was leaving the comfort of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa and headed for the streets of Paris where he would learn to become a Mime.  The venerable sage suggested that he try out a few routines on guests here and see if he is cutout for such a rigorous life.  Not everyone likes a mime in their face; he added.


The pulsating beat of the Spanish guitar and rhythmic accompaniment of castanets was too much for Carmelita; her early Flamenco training over came her.  the Face of Everyman had been seeking a new opening act for his Spring Varieties Show at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Dang!  The venerable sage was fresh out of bi-lingual artist contracts.

Mating plumage

Wesley felt a bit self-conscience a first.  The new barber shop along the posh arcade entering the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa charged a lot for a simple dye job to enhance mating plumage before the season opening; but he felt that he was mature enough to carry it off.  “Well”, said the Face of Everyman, “if you’re feeling mature and responsible, let me set you up with a Family Insurance policy.  You can pay your first premium with your tax return.”

Tax Returns

Philby was emphatic in denouncing those who sought to have his client’s tax forms released.  He chose the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa as a symbolic site of liberty to state his case.  the Face of Everyman was always curious as to which of the guests every filed an income tax return.

DSL Outage

Walter was beside himself with alarm.  The DSL serving the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was down.  His ISP wouldn’t return his calls.  The internet outage effected his whole being and way of life.   Walter didn’t find solace when the Face of Everyman recounted that once when he was Station Master in a remote spot along the Pony Express route he ran out of fresh horses.  The U.S. Mail didn’t move for two whole days.

Please, Mom . . .

Rocky, Jr. pleaded with his Mom.  He didn’t want to go home.  The Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa had the best garbage cans and the freshest water for miles around.  Mom wasn’t hearing any excuses.  She was afraid that the Face of Everyman would give Junior some uppity ideas about earning a living and paying taxes.


The Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa held their annual championship golf tournament every year about this time.  The heavy hitters lead Saturday’s group.  First to tee off, seen upper left, is Blackie Red Wing, next is Speckie Star and lastly seen lower right is Cowboy Brownie.  Not seen is the vast field of spectators.  the Face of Everyman was nearly overwhelmed sponsoring such a large popular event.
