Few New Year’s Resolutions last very long, even at the magical Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. In her first words after she got off of the bus Elizabeth asked, “Either of you handsome young men got a cigarette?” the Face of Everyman could feel his cough reflex start to kick in. His voice would be horse by sundown.
Robby had been to the presentation at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. There he had learned from the presenters that he was a natural for entry into the world of Aluminum Siding sales. For a small fee he would be given the territory that encompassed the imaginary zip code of the FBR&S. With his work ethic Robby knew that his fortune was assured. the Face of Everyman tried to get his attention before the money changed hands. Alas . . .
Grainy security camera footage showed that Earl had returned to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. His Mom had named him Early Bird but it came with too much expectation so he shortened his name to just plain Earl. the Face of Everyman noted that his arrival coincided with the beginning of Winter. Yikes! Everyman’s toes were already numb.
Heavy Fall rains brought the Robins back to the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa to forage for the succulent worms that perhaps could be found only in this remote region of the Pacific flyway. the Face of Everyman resumed his export mail order business shipping up to six crates a week of his signature brand Olympic Select Worms to Koi farms in the orient where they were the preferred dietary supplement.
Communications were difficult between birds of different species. the Face of Everyman tried to help whenever possible. Skylar asked where one might find the best place to forage for beetles in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. Red Robin responded by saying where the best worms could be found. E liked to think of himself as a conduit thru which the little people could make themselves understood. He answered each question with, he thought, helpful information.
