Shape-Shifter

They started arriving at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa shortly before sundown.  Normally the Face of Everyman could tolerate a few genuine Halloween scary types but he knew that he would be in trouble if he ran out of treats.  Some would “shift” their appearance and come back for seconds.  The venerable sage was reluctant to break into his private stock of Reese’s Peanut-butter Cups just to satisfy the cravings of a few spine-chilling mythical creatures.

Photography

It is that time of year when proud couples in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa celebrate the fledging of their second brood.  Roscoe appears very proud while Theodora more stately.  the Face of Everyman gave them their portfolio of four proofs.  They could choose which pose to purchase.  Next week he was shooting school class photos; an especially lucrative area of enterprise.

Air Pollution

The Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa has been blanketed in smoke and haze from forest fires raging in an alternative universe.  Seen above are two EMTs assigned to help the elderly and infirmed deal with the polluted air.  the Face of Everyman had given out his last face mask; there was nothing else he could do but remind folks to stay in their nest till onshore winds improved air quality.

Epic Deluge

Intense rains had fallen and flood waters overwhelmed the levees surrounding the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Webster from FEMA came down to tell the Face of Everyman that it would be after lunch before the emergency pumps would be repaired.  A Helo crew could drop K-rations or rescue the venerable sage if the swirling waters rose any higher.  Everyman showed no concern; after all, he had experienced the crushing force of the Johnstown Flood of 1889.

Barnstomers

The circus is ready to leave their winter quarters in the meadow near the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Various acts are making last minute improvements. These two asked the venerable sage to suggest a “snappy” name.  the Face of Everyman deemed this duo: The Flying St Croix Twins.  They’ll go on to make their fortune this summer as top draw Barnstormers.
