Service Animal

the Face of Everyman tried to explain to Scrappy that he was unsuitable for the job.  The Ad on Craig’s List was for a Service Animal that would remain in the grand lobby of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa and provide comfort to those guests in distress.  The venerable sage pointed out that, by the cut of his jib, he was best at catching rats, mice and gophers.  This job would go to someone more docile; perhaps a Lab or a Golden Retriever.  Scrappy went home and put his collar on in order to look more respectable for his next job interview.  Luckily all his shots were up to date.


It was Jimmy’s turn to be the Kite.  Light butcher’s twine from the award winning kitchen of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was tied to his legs.  A good length was played out then he swooped and soared.  the Face of Everyman recalled his early days of competition kite flying.  In his own mind he introduced the sport to the folks at Weifang, China.

Intern Error

An unsupervised Security Intern unwittingly released an image proving to dispel the long held myth of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa as a magical place.  Instead it reveals that it is no more than half an old whiskey barrel, an Italian terracotta planter base and an artfully carved chunk of basalt revered by all as the Face of Everyman.  The grainy imaged was quickly removed from public exposure and denounced by the kindly ol’ pensioner as “fake news”.


Panther returned to her old hunting grounds.  She was wary.  She knew that the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was now a UNESCO World Heritage Avian Sanctuary.  One misstep and “they” would put a bell on her neck.  She pretended to be civil to the Face of Everyman but she couldn’t quite pull it off.

Catch and Release

Instead of watching Romper Room in the morning, Ripley watched The Nature Channel.  Strangely he imprinted on Eagles.  Seen hovering above the turbulent waters of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa; he is poised to catch the first fish to appear.  the Face of Everyman wondered if he should call Fish & Wildlife and request that a modest amount of minnows be stocked.  “Catch and Release” of course.

Spring Migration

Spring migration of song birds was increasing.  Word of the fabulous Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa had spread far and wide.  the Face of Everyman was starting to lack the skills to properly ID migrants who were not yet in spring mating colors.  The gnome in the background is of no help; he appears to be sleeping off last nights festivities.


Spring like weather brought the return to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa of daredevil flyers known as Barnstormers.  This fearless aeronaut is probably here to join the famous Bergdorf Flying Circus.  the Face of Everyman gave a forecast of good weekend weather. The nearby meadow would be busy with airplane rides, concessions, and of course “E”s signature brand Bulgarian Hot Dogs with Sauerkraut.
