Barn Dance

Frisco Bob stopped to remind the Face of Everyman about the Halloween Barn Dance at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Grange.  Fisco had assembled a Square Dance Caller and a couple of Fiddle players.  Folks were asked to bring a covered dish and there would be bobbing for apples.  “Who doesn’t like apples?” Frisco asked rhetorically.   Off-highhandedly Bob reminded the venerable sage that he could bring a date.

Job Fair

Renaldo was first in line for the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Job Fair.  the Face of  Everyman scanned Renaldo’s impressive resume’.  He is a drummer for one of the top garage bands in the village.  He has his own house; a foreclosure from a Screech Owl.  He doesn’t migrate; so he could work each season unless he was dating seriously.  The venerable sage put this eager youngster on retainer until an opening came up.IMG_0572 (2)

The Blessing

Proud parents brought their first born son Quillon to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  They were eager for the Face of Everyman to give the child a blessing.  Unfortunately the young lad, quite literally, stepped on the lines of the venerable sage, muffling ancient words of praise and protection.  Maybe they’d have better luck next week with an itinerant Shaman.IMG_0334 (3)


the Face of Everyman, mused that parents should not be allowed to bring their clumsy, unattractive children to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Who screens these reservations?  This family should be Red Tagged for the next six weeks; maybe longer.IMG_0278 (2)


Miss Havisham passed through the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa; she was amazed at the dearth of suitable bugs available for dining.  A bit chagrined, the Face of Everyman could only respond that it had been a cool summer so far and perhaps that would change.  He uncrossed his fingers as soon as she flew off.IMG_0204 (2)


The Borscht Belt was in high season. Nightly new acts were booked into the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman had to listen carefully as each act did a quick sketch.  This candidate did one liners:  “Take my wife. Please.”  “When I was a Kid my yo-yo never came back to me.”  By mid morning the venerable sage was ready for a stiff drink and his nap.  Flicker


Cynthia stopped by the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa to visit with the Face of Everyman   She explained that she and Dexter had been creating a nest for this years brood.  She hoped to call on the venerable sage again soon if only Dexter would keep his agreement to incubate.  He kept slipping off to the casino.


Camilla was clear in her demands for a better quality of suet.  the Face of Everyman protested that he was but the middleman representing the good folks at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa and that he would address this issue with the kindly ol’ pensioner.  Truth be told; Everyman was so over budget on bird seed and suet that he’d have to carry deficits clear into the third quarter.

Suet Scheme

Spotted Wilhelmina is reportedly in the Witness Protection Program.  She goes to great lengths to avoid having her picture taken.  Seen here, caught on the security camera, Wilhelmina seems unawares.  The rumor is never clear as to why she should be sequestered in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman has learned from his sources that she is expected to give testimony about a phony suet pyramid scheme.
