The dance recital continued unabated.  Even the Face of Everyman yawned despite himself.  The good folks at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa hadn’t been so bored since a road troupe staged a lengthy event based on an early Persian poem.  Some folks had tickets to see “Chicago, the Musical”.  But that group was detained at the border by TSA.

Members of the famed Polar Bear Club from the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa had complained that the entrances to the Cabana Hut changing rooms were too small.  Well fed songbirds had a hard time getting in and out.  OSHA sent an inspector to evaluate their claim.  The report disclosed that few modern songbirds were that small.  A federal grant would be awarded to the Face of Everyman to increase the size of existing holes.  A prestiges ivy league body measurement standard would be used as a guide.IMG_0074 (2)

Duck and . . .

Cheeky had just came from the village where there was talk of teaching the school kids:”duck and cover”.  the Face of Everyman wasn’t so sure that the guests of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa would quite get the hang of such a intricate scheme.  Maybe he should develop a lesson plan, create a few slides.  Or direct a short film with a celebrity narrator.   IMG_0204 (2)

Shock Therapy

Recidivism  is high among cats.  After a short bail hearing Panther was right back to her old tricks.  One more citation and she’ll be banned for life from the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman had proposed electroconvulsive therapy.  Management agreed to look into matter.  After all, this was a U.N. Sanctuary.IMG_0009 (2)


the Face of Everyman had dropped a dime on the one eight hundred number: Owl Hotline.  A recorded message advised the venerable sage that, “Your call is important to us, but all available agents are busy at the moment.  Your call will be answered in the order received.”  Dang!  There was never a cop owl around when you needed one.

Mom’s Adage

the Face of Everyman’s Mother had always said, “Birds of a feather flock together.” Seen below is proof.  As these two species of birds wreak havoc on the Friday afternoon smorgasbord at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Everyman was already over budget this quarter because of the New Years Eve party.  He would have to call on his creative accounting skills to make things look right.IMG_0106


Grainy security camera images revealed that an Owl had landed nearby in the vast canopy of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.   the Face of Everyman asked if it had been determined if the intruder was a Great Horned or a Barred Owl.  Each known to kill a large range of prey.  A team was sent at dawn to search for pellets and reconstruct the food consumed.  Unsubstantiated rumors of Snowy Owl sightings had everyone on the alert.IMG_0019 (2)
