Algernon had heard the myth of the fresh water clams that grew in the waters of the Spring of Eternal Giving. He had resisted looking until he heard that they may be ready for harvest. The Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa required a license to harvest. the Face of Everyman pretended to be asleep when the young Crow came by to purchase a license. The venerable sage wanted the first crop to be his.

Heat Wave

Every Summer the face of Everyman tries to take credit for teaching Crows to fan themselves to keep cool. The venerable sage will tell any who will listen that when the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa was first conceived there was no such thing as air conditioning so he taught guests to fan. It caught on quickly.

Movie Time

Just before the movie was to start Junior started begging to be fed. His squawking reverberated thru out the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. Poor Mom she would lose her place in line. The look on the Face of Everyman told her not to ask the favor of holding her place till she returned.


Dundee assured the Face of Everyman this object was more than a mere bauble. It was discovered far in the out back deep within an opal mine. The Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa didn’t accept stolen treasure in payment for rent. The venerable sage gave Dundee his thirty days notice to vacate.

Tasty Critter

Dad didn’t have permission to hunt in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa; but, that didn’t matter much as this here tasty critter wasn’t on the endangered species list. As he told the Face of Everyman: “A nest full of new borns requires a heap of protein.”


It was Bobby’s birthday and his indulgent parents allowed him to play “bobbing for peanuts” in the pristine waters of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. the Face of Everyman objected to such use of the public facilities; it took days to clear the waters of the detritus.


Buttered toast was a favorite of Farley’s but he was willing to share with the Face of Everyman. Such a prize was not often found in the vast forests of the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. The venerable sage gracious declined the offer; suspecting that it came from sweepings behind the village cafe.


Harold is being called a hero by the folks at the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa. The quick thinking lad grabbed a tool and pried the Face of Everyman from the watery depths.

Pomme Frites

Ashwell made a ritual of dunking day old French Fries. They were not that common in the Foggy Bottoms Resort and Spa and so deserved special attention. the Face of Everyman was tempted to put pride aside and ask for a bite.
