Colonel Bogey March

When the WW II Vets at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa VFW Post heard that POTUS wanted to stage a parade down Pennsylvania Ave; they planned to be ready.  the Face of Everyman agreed to call cadence.  Saturdays, on parade, the recorded drums and horns of the Colonel Bogey March kept everybody more or less in step.  They looked good, like a geriatric marching unit should.

Pastor Bob

Pastor Bob has returned to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  His revival tent sits in the meadow and he is eager to bring that old time religion to the good folks hereabouts.  Pastor Bob even extended a joyous welcome to the Face of Everyman; known by all to be a Cynic.  The venerable sage just might make one of the healing crusades if his knee didn’t get any better.

Ambush

They were certain that they were walking into an ambush but the lure of cracked corn and millet seed was overpowering.  Fresh tracks in the mud of big cats made them wary.  The fact that the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was a UNESCO avian sanctuary never crossed the minds of Tula’, Panther or Boots.  All were neighborhood scofflaws and may have done hard timethe Face of Everyman was conducting business on mind-skype and was powerless to aid the naive pigeons if a rumble went down.

Indignities

As luck would have it; a plus sized couple won big on a popular game show: a weeks stay at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman braced himself for a weeks worth of indignities.

Recruits

The Breakfast Kit posted a few flyers around the statuary and memorials of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa; hopefully to encourage lonely pigeons to try out for membership in their group.  Flyers were effusive; bountiful food and plenty of cover from raptors, friendly rodents.  Two new pigeons, seen above, are trying out for a newly created vacancy.  the Face of Everyman remained mute as he is often wont to do.

Mortality Census

Periodically the Face of Everyman took a census count of bands of Simple Pigeons.  Shown above is The Breakfast Kit.  “E” duly recorded the loss of one of its member since the last tally and phoned in the official report from the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Bird Banding and Census Station.  Noting the cause: Death by Cooper’s Hawk.
