Clinic

When the remodeled clinic opened at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa strange new cases showed up seeking medical attention.  On the advice of the Face of Everyman Grylis attended sick call for his deformed horn; the subject of fights with hunting dogs released by poachers.  “Doc” removed the horn and recommended bed rest, two aspirin every four hours and drink lots of liquids.  IMG_0005 (2)

Thimblerig

The pidgeons are up to their old tricks; illegal gambling at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  Some run the shell game others three card monte. The guests always lose.  the Face of Everyman decided to have some fun.   Pigeons scattered when he yelled “Cops.” IMG_0070 (2)

Aida

Once again the Face of Everyman tried to bring a little culture to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  For the lunchtime crowd: Act II, Scene 2 the Triumphal March from “Aida”.  Unfortunately artistic tempers flared and the stately march broke into a rout. IMG_0211 (2)

Election Results

With the election results for most races in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa almost assured; conspiracy theories grew in astounding numbers. Even the Face of Everyman could not quell the absurd ones fast enough with facts or counter theories.  By Sunday noon he was too exhausted to think; hopefully a nap would help.IMG_0664

Bean Counter

Once again the Face of Everyman had been late submitting his quarterly reports to Foggy Bottoms Corporate.  When his financials started showing creative accounting they sent a rather stern Bean Counter to discuss the matter.  The venerable sage would not be given a second chance.  “Shape up, or ship out.” Was his parting comment.IMG_0341

Vows

Ordinarily newly weds drank from a silver chalice as the Face  of Everyman concluded the ceremony.  However this day the venerable sage had loaned the sacred cup to the Soccer coach to present to the winning team in the match between Foggy Bottoms United and the Village F C.  The young couple were too in love to notice that their vows were sealed with something akin to swamp water.IMG_0178 (2)

Guilty?

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)
