New Guests

This young couple weren’t sure that they would fit in at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa: being so colorful and all . . .  the Face of Everyman was quick to assure them that everybody was welcome.  Well, perhaps a few, like raptors and nest robbers, weren’t regarded as guests, and never will be.  The venerable sage said that he would be pleased to store their luggage until after lunch when they could check in at the front desk.

Barking

To most folks the life at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa seems idyllic.  But for some like Sydney the carefree life takes a terrible toll.  As seen above the breakdowns begin by barking at bubbles.  the Face of Everyman tries to step in and offer his style of talk therapy.  No one knows what becomes of those who are sent to the clinic in Switzerland.

Subwoofer

Despite the wet weather of April, cats continued to test the defenses of the Foggy Bottom Resort and Spa.  Security forces held off sounding the alarm.  Instead a recording of the Face of Everyman’s soliloquy from “Hamlet” played at half speed usually drove off the intruder.

Robynn

Robynn was the Poster Child for the CBT clinic at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  This poor fledgling had shown up with the worst case of ablutophobia ever seen by the venerable sage.  After weeks of cognitive behavior therapy Robynn was at last free of her fears.  She joyously splashed water on the Face of Everyman.  His smile was so broad, his face almost cracked.

Rocket Propulsion

Early Chinese manuscripts had given the Face of Everyman the idea behind avian rocketry.   A small rocket is attached to the under belly of the bird; a pull on a string ignites the rocket.  Seen above is the first successful flight at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Test Facility.  Onlookers seem unimpressed by this technological marvel.
