Wallace was embarrassed to have his photo taken by the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa security camera. He was not yet in full mating colors and was at that awkward stage both physically and emotionally. He beseeched the Face of Everyman to act on his behalf to have that image destroyed. Alas, it was out of the hands of the venerable sage. The photo went viral on the sports arena jumbotron.


LeRoy was never sure how big of a bribe was appropriate. A kernel seemed generous to him; after all, the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was some sort of back water guest retreat. the Face of Everyman always carefully weighed the value of the gift against the importance of the request. He smiled and suggested that perhaps a larger gift was in order. LeRoy shrugged in resignation. Another kernel was doable.

Trophy Tail

The Old Sarge had lost his tail in some long forgotten battle. He never participated in the Memorial Day parades sponsored by the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Veterans Post 209. the Face of Everyman was reluctant to ask questions when he served our hero his free drink; after all it wasn’t some kind of disability; it was just a raccoon tail. Probably it was on the radio antenna of some kid’s hot rod.


Percy, the messenger wanted to be the first in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa to announce the arrival of the Fawns. Does with their frisky fawns had been observed leaving the deep cover of the vast forest. the Face of Everyman noted that their obedience training began almost immediately. . . . watch for dogs, wait for cars to pass, freeze in place if Mom does.


Baseball gained new prominence during the lock down for Avian Flu. Seen above is “Shoe less” Robespierre sliding in to home plate at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Sports Arena. Less than ten players in each dugout and social distancing practices met all the requirements. the Face of Everyman kept score and dreamed of a road trip with the wining team.


Chaos was rampant in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. Those on reduced rations were forced to forage.  Guests were unwilling to share the buffet.  The riotous behavior of the Raccoons had left the Face of Everyman askew.  The venerable sage reckoned that it would be up to the kindly ol’ pensioner to once more establish law and order in this fabled land. IMG_0083 (2)
