Boris was back trying to patch things up with Anastasia. She had been aloof to his advances and may have actually checked out of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  the Face of Everyman could not discuss the comings and goings of guests however he was not above recommending The Old Village Inn to those who wanted to escape the noise of late night pool parties and raucous Bingo games in the Casino.

Sock Hop

Saturdays at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was the nationally televised Sock Hop dance party.  The dress code was fairly rigid.  Often, however unfair, the Face of Everyman had to draw the line.  Poor Jokul, he never really understood the clean and dry dress code concept.

The Audit

the Face of Everyman didn’t know what to believe.  These two jokers arrive at the crack of dawn claiming to be auditors sent by Corporate to check the books of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa.  These two knew their stuff.  The invoice for two hundred bit coin worth of illegal fireworks was the their first discovery.  The audit went down hill from there.  Once again the venerable sage felt his Golden Handshake slipping from his grasp.  To say nothing of his renown grand 4th of July fireworks display.

Lost In Time

the Face of Everyman regretted that he hadn’t given that nice Calendar Watch to young Darcy for graduation.  Here he was in broad daylight foraging around the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa well past his bedtime.  It was only 4 books of S&H Green Stamps™ down at the village store and his dear Mom had left him scads of full books when she passed.

Fiesta Cubano!

Raoul has opened his new food truck, Fiesta Cubano!  Seen above Raoul is serving his signature Cuban sandwich to the Face of Everyman.     The management of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was seeking greater diversity in experiences offered to the guests; a bratwurst wagon was in the works.  The venerable sage has chosen as sides, Saw Grass Slaw and Bermuda Fries.

Tipping Point

The Ungrateful Five once part of much larger flock; now reduced to the parents, two siblings and a maiden aunt.  They had been added to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa endangered species list.  the Face of Everyman wept when he realized their plight.  Was it wrong for the kindly ol’ pensioner to add them to his daily rations and largesse?  Had they lost their edge to remain free to forage?  Had they reached a population tipping point, or was it all in the natural order of things?


All ten candidates were prepared to take their places.  The Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was the ideal venue for the debate.  the Face of Everyman had agreed to be the Moderator.  All bets were off for a second round.  Maybe a clear front runner would be seen tonight.
