Chill

Early morning temps neared the freezing mark which only partially explained Gwendolyn’s frozen beak.  The waitstaff at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa suggested a quick dip into a cup of hot coffee.  the Face of Everyman concurred.  It seemed that there was always something going awry, even in paradise.

Nectar

Freezing temps and lack of nectar was a problem for Heloise.  The Mini-Mart at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was closed on Sunday.  the Face of Everyman feared that the poor dear might try and self medicate on his early flowering cannabis.  These Blue Laws were causing havoc in the lives of the little people.  Things must change.

Camouflage

Algernon was a natural at his job of detecting camouflaged objects.  His defective color vision allowed him to seek out every camouflaged wildlife camera in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman gave Algernon high marks for finding cameras that used Disruptive Coloration for concealment.  On his first pass during field trials “A” found three Paparazzi and a National Geographic Photo team. A record that stands today.IMG_0011 (2)

Bad Dream

The polls closed early at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman relied on runners bringing constant updates on key races.  Seats on the School Board were up for grabs; write in candidates created the most chaos.  Front runners had seldom gone beyond the first grade.  Even graduating from the Montietorkie School did not ensure good governance. The school bonds were going down in utter defeat. To the venerable sage this all seemed a bad dream.IMG_0198 (2)

Epoch

An Arctic outbreak brought freezing temps to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman’s teeth chattered incessantly.  He hadn’t been this cold since the Pleistocene Epoch began.  Little Bobby had just joined the Ski Club and was disappointed by the lack of snow.IMG_1106 (2)

Melpomene

Melpomene was ready to depart for the winter and leave the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa far behind.  But not before she told the Face of Everyman what she thought of the complete lack of nectar feeders.  The venerable sage tried to blame the computer for the breakdown in the supply system.  She vowed to nest elsewhere next Spring.IMG_0575 (2)

Theremin

The last audition for the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa musical extravaganza was a shy local who would play the Theremin with her own rendition of “Over the Rainbow”.   the Face of Everyman always had a soft spot in his heart for Judy Garland tunes.IMG_0298 (2)
