Food Chain

A large school of shrimp had entered the waters of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  They were pursued by Smelt who in turn were pursued by the Gulls.  the Face of Everyman didn’t fit neatly into the food chain but that sharp beak was something to avoid.IMG_0399 (2)


the Face of Everyman could almost set his watch by the return of Gulls and their food source, the Surf Smelt, to the nutrient rich waters of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  However it was this moment, frozen in time, when Eve suggests that Adam take a bite of the apple. IMG_0003 (2)


Technical difficulties prevent new material from being posted.  This photo, an earlier post, will show the stark terror seen in the eyes of the Face of Everyman as he is confronted by this unwelcome guest at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  The behemoth eventually left but the venerable sage had bad dreams for several nights thereafter.Herring Gull

Death Threat

the Face of Everyman was unclear if the Death Threat was real or was it a poorly worded request.  The venerable sage tried to remain calm and not show fear, but that proved difficult.  In the end, the villain departed the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa vowing to return.  Immediately, the Kindly ol’ Pensioner put everybody on half rations of dreck.  Nothing should attract these marauders.  Everyman pleaded, on the guests behalf, for a wiser solution.

Unwelcome Guest

An unthinking member of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa kitchen staff had discarded the crusts of the English Tea Cucumber Sandwiches.  Naturally the undesirable element appeared within moments.  In a brave act of statesmanship the Face of Everyman hammered out an agreement whereas Jonathon could take the large crusts provided he leave the smaller for the nesting Crows.  It seemed a win-win for everybody.
