Without proper sports equipment recess at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Montietorkie School had been reduced to such tests of endurance as holding one’s head under water.  Seen below Casper dunks his head while the Face of Everyman counts to one hundred.  The CPR kit was close at hand if resuscitation was required.

Chester’s widowed Mother has been paying the Face of Everyman to coach her fledgling son through some of the finer points of flying.  Perhaps they should have used the meadow near the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa as there was lots of room.  Seen above, Chester seems to have got himself stuck and can’t turn around.  The venerable sage tried to keep his voice calm as he explained the hop up and twist around maneuver.

Noli turbare circulos meos!

Young Milo was preparing his TED talk to be hosted by the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  He had chosen the topic “Archimedes and the Origin of Circles.”   the Face of Everyman helped Milo give a truly dynamic presentation with the loan of a few faded slides taken by the venerable sage of the ancient Greek mathematician and astronomer; recording his most creative period.

On Thin Air

A rare phenomenon illustrates how cold it at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  It is so cold that the Towhee slipped on thin air.  the Face of Everyman tried to calculate the odds of this event being caught on camera.  The American Robin and White-crowned Sparrow are eye witnesses and think of it as a spiritual event.  A sign perhaps.


Slidell was hell bent on creating mischief. Things in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa needed stirring up.  But, inasmuch as it was almost sundown, he thought he’d best return to his pipe & slippers.  the Face of Everyman could sense Slidell’s inner rage and was thankful that this quiet resort community would not be subject to chaos and blind panic this very night.


Once again the Face of Everyman awoke to find himself cattywampus.  Those rowdy raccoons are to blame.  Luckily young Archimedes was fresh out of Engineering school.  His quick eye told him that he’d need a long lever and a fulcrum to put the venerable sage back in harmony with metaphysical lines of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa spiritual vortex.
