Special?

Bascombe was glad to be alive. He felt special; perhaps even royal. A golden crown marked him as such. The folks at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa should take note. the Face of Everyman was aware of some two million sparrows like him that migrated thru here every year. So much for being special.

Audit

Corporate IG sent around a rather gloom chap named Sonny to inspect the books of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. the Face of Everyman became so frightened that he wasn’t sure which set of books he should bring out for the audit. He was still looking forward to that Golden Handshake.

Combat

It was the same every year. As different tribes encountered one another at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa, combat would ensue. the Face of Everyman repeatedly tried to negotiate between the Gold Crowns and the White Crowns; often to no avail. It was nature’s replay of the Hatfields and the McCoys.

IRS Agent

The IRS agent was clear.  He was here to look at the books of an import company of which the Face of Everyman was listed as CEO.  The venerable sage had so many small and varied interests that surely he couldn’t be expected to recall any particular one at a moments notice.  The agent was gruff and all business, yet he gave “E” till Tuesday to meet his demands.  Everyman thought: “Better call . . .”

Bully

The renown Montetorkie School at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa had an enviable record for child behavior and discipline.  Bully insigated dust ups seldom occurred; that is until “Diesel” Rekker transferred in from some do-gooder wild life rescue outfit upstate.  Seen above, frozen in fear, is “Twinky” LaRue.  the Face of Everyman felt powerless to intervene.

Pickpocket

Webster suddenly realized that his wallet and wrist watch were missing.  This form of larceny was very uncommon at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa; but, could Johnny Dark Eyes be a pickpocket?   That warm embrace, that strong hand shake, the glib chatter about old times.  All very disarming.  Unfortunately, once again the Face of Everyman was napping and didn’t see or hear a thing.

Vigilantes

Johnny Dark Eyes and his cousin Melchior, signed up to become Vigilantes to replace the non-existent law enforcement in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa region.  Seen above in a security camera clip they are about to take down the Golden Crowned Sparrow, a notorious scofflaw with over two hundred unpaid parking tickets in this jurisdiction alone.  the Face of Everyman remained mute as he is often wont to do.
