Operating on a tip from CERN federal inspectors swooped down on the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  It was suspected that the cyclotron operated by the Face of  Everyman had indeed detected the Higgs Boson.  The venerable sage lawyered up and refused to comment until the hearing before the World Court in The Hague.

The kindly ol’ pensioner had pleaded not guilty to the charges of feeding wild life without a permit.  The DA called into evidence his first photo.  the Face of Everyman halted the proceedings and asked for a change of venue: no human could get a fair trial in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Before the Judge could respond, the plaintive asked to have his plea changed to: nolo contendere. A new trial date was set for sometime in February.IMG_0002 (2)

Dahlia Time

Absentmindedly the kindly ol’ pensioner plucked the only living bloom in the garden of the Face of Everyman.  Thus a small bit of color in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was extinguished. A brief hand written note extended an apology and offered a prize Dahlia tuber in contrition.


Quiz Show

The famous quiz show, Jeopardy, is coming to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Seen above is Johnny Dark Eyes quizzing the Face of Everyman with practice questions.  The venerable sage seems to be drawing a blank on many questions in the very categories he should know.  Are the Gods trying to humble the world’s oldest citizen?

Stark Terror

the Face of Everyman awoke in a state of stark terror.  He had misplaced his memory chip somewhere on the vast grounds of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  He had no memory of the last 24 hours.  His only hope would be to relive yesterday “vicariously” through replays of the security cameras.

The Mayhem Kids

A hot Summer night at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa brought the return of the Mayhem Kids.  Infamous rapscallions. Their antics tipped the Face of Everyman into the dark waters.  His muffled cries were heard by the kindly ol’ pensioner, who, after breakfast, sorted things out.

The High Court

The High Court met at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa to consider the merits of a case alleging poor quality of food served by the kindly ol’ pensioner.  After hearing arguments they adjourned for a sumptuous lunch prepared by a renown executive chef.  To sway the Court, the Face of Everyman had a few bottles of his best single malt Scotch and a box of fine Cuban cigars placed on a nearby tea cart.  The case was dismissed without prejudice.


On quiet mornings poolside at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa, before the Cabana boys had set out the chairs, the Face of Everyman liked to snap his fingers and watch isotopes of hydrogen collide.  The resulting plasma warmed his stone cold Danish and lukewarm Coffee.
