Anastasia was telling the Face of Everyman of the beauties of her former home town of Odessa, Ukraine and how she yearned to return someday.  As they spoke the NPR station situated on the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was carrying the latest congressional testimony from that alternate world called Washington.  The venerable sage turned his radio off so that he and she could continue their conversation.IMG_0831 (2)


Boris was back trying to patch things up with Anastasia. She had been aloof to his advances and may have actually checked out of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman could not discuss the comings and goings of guests however he was not above recommending The Old Village Inn to those who wanted to escape the noise of late night pool parties and raucous Bingo games in the Casino.


Gwendoline had been shopping the boutiques and consignment stores for a smaller set of wings.  She is seen modeling her best choice for the Face of Everyman.  These will be her costume for a retrospective blackout sequence honoring that great Broadway headliner Gypsy Rose Lee.  The theater at the Foggy Bottoms Resort is SRO.  She is booked right after retrospectives of the Marx Brothers and W.C. Fields.

Hot Tub

Doreen had reserved the hot tub for 6 AM.  The scented soothing waters were just what she needed after an all nighter as a croupier at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Casino.  the Face of Everyman was barred from the Casino in as much as he could envision the outcome of the turn of the card or throw of the dice.


This week, to avoid paying her lodging and spa fees at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa, Anastasia claimed to be Caledonia, Queen of a lost tribe of Scots and hadn’t run up those charges.  the Face of Everyman had her Pinkerton Agency dossier and knew for a fact that she had been hatched in a dovecote in Hoboken, New Jersey.  Fantasy didn’t pay the rent.
