Natasha had been subpoenaed to testify although she wasn’t sure what a telephone was.  the Face of Everyman had agreed to be at her side thru out her testimony.  Luckily the Committee had not budgeted for hearings as far a field as the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  She and the venerable sage were excused.  IMG_0073 (2)


Few at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa took notice of Angelica as she was called home to begin training as a Guardian Angel.  the Face of Everyman reckoned that she was the third this quarter.  He wasn’t sure if he should count the Dove taken by the Raptor.  He left that cell on his spread sheet open for now; until confirmation.  IMG_0228 (2)


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.


Natasha had spent days binge-streaming epic video productions.  She had long ago exhausted both archival Betamax libraries held by the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa and the Face of Everyman.  She needed fresh air and sunlight before she tackled all thirty seasons of The Simpsons, unexpurgated and complete with such features as out takes and interviews with cast members.  The venerable sage believed that she was driven by demons.  An exorcism just may be required.
