Tom and the Fly

"The time has come," the walrus said, "to speak of many things."






I don't think the walrus had in mind what I'm about to tell you. First, I want to say that being a cat of the cloth means I can talk to anybody about anything, and they can talk to me.

The other day, I was sleeping, minding my own business






when along came this tiny winged creature who wanted to talk






and talk, and talk, and talk, naturally of many things. There wasn't even a confession in there to keep my interest.






Oh, my Cod, I was losing my patience.

But, I listened and I listened.

I wasn't even able to get a word in edgewise.

Finally, I'd had enough.






I didn't mean to, honestly, and this has been weighing on my conscience ever since. What do you think I saw when I removed my paw?

He was still there.

Talking..and talking..(hehe) Although, he might have pawsed for a moment.

Ships and shoes and sealing wax get boring after a while, as do cabbages and kings!

Wow we are very impressed you didn't eat it. We has to CONFESS we would have.

If he was still talking after that, Tom, we're impressed.

We'd have dedded him and left his corpse for the mom to pick up. Then I suppose we'd have to confess to you. :-P

Thanks for coming over to comment on our blog Tom & Julie.
By coincidence mom read your book on her kindle on the drive there & back.
She hasn't been able to do much reading lately so she's only a little over 1/2 way now. She just snuggled into the back seat and is at the part where the mysterious stranger came into the sacristy when Fr. Will thought he was late for Mass.

Heheheeeeee, even cat of the cloth gets impatient, so SS can't berate me for putting my paws on the crawlies.

Thanks for coming by to visit.

It always astounds our apes how we cats can bring down our mighty paws on such a tiny creature like a fly, yet not damage it. Watch and learn apes!
