Talk Therapy

Mid-way through the breeding season marriage counseling became big business for the Face of Everyman. This was the third session for Rocky and Chantilly and they were no closer to agreement than on their first visit to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Mental Health Clinic. Some how the venerable sage talked them into one more session before the inevitable.

Pearls

The lure of the mythical fresh water Pearls was too much for Amerigo. The Spring of Eternal Giving seemed aptly named for his misadventure. The Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa held many spots of danger: hot springs, geysers, twisted gravity vortexes. the Face of Everyman knew these spots well. The venerable sage watched Amerigo; waiting for his first misstep.

Heat Wave

It was the hottest day of the year at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. The pumps that produce the Spring of Eternal Giving failed and to the surprise of everybody the life giving waters stopped. Using an old trick the Face of Everyman stuck a penny behind the fuse and restored power to the pumps. By late afternoon a licensed electrician had corrected the problem.

Dirt

Margaret seemed to know every bit of gossip in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. Every conversation began with: “Did you see whose dating Rodney?” or some such local lathario. the Face of Everyman relied on Margaret to help him keep up on the latest dirt.

XXXII Olympiad

Try outs for the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa track and field Olympic team began in earnest. the Face of Everyman carefully measured the efforts of each contestant. Elizabeth, seen in the middle, jumped higher than Broderick or Jimmy-John. On faith, the venerable sage booked her on a July flight to Tokyo.

Yikes!

Mom brought young Ethelbert down to the magic waters of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. She never mentioned that the waters would be cold. the Face of Everyman always dipped a toe in first. He never liked surprises.

Barbershop Quartet

the Face of Everyman needed some light, nostalgic entertainment for the early bird dinner crowd of seniors. He was willing to pay “scale” for a group who could sing in harmony and sound like a Barbershop Quartet. By the look on their faces, the venerable sage knew that this group Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa quests wasn’t ready for anything. Thank goodness he hadn’t yet bought the hats.

Proposals

Love seemed everywhere in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. the Face of Everyman could barely keep from rolling his eyes. Daily he had to endure listening to awkward proposals. Here and there he would add to his journal a few choice words gleaned from his eaves dropping. Some were outlandish. A few stole from Shakespeare. Some idiotic. Much was pure tripe.

Choir

Openings in the Ladies Choir were rare and the coveted positions were eagerly sought. Above Esmeralda auditions, her voice coach below. the Face of Everyman was surprised at the quality and range of her song. He would look no further. Perhaps the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa Ladies Choir could give those Salt Lake City folks a run for their money.

Tenors

Every year the three tenors went on tour. They usually started with the big resorts like the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. They ran their repertoire for the lunch crowd. the Face of Everyman convinced them to try new material on the dinner crowd. Seen above is Luciano singing “O Sole Mio”; a real crowd-pleaser.
