Notes from a parish cat and his author Julie Mackenzie

My photo
I am Father Tom Fish, esteemed member of the religious team at Temptation of Christ Parish in the novels by author Julie Mackenzie. As to my background, I was invited into the rectory as a stray, laid on the charm, and was invited to stay, even honorarily ordained and no less spiritual than my sidekick Father Will. He dotes on me to high heaven and forgives all of my street cat proclivities, whatever the hell that means.

Pirate Day

Boy, am I excited!

I get to go on a pirate ship, a pirate ship, a pirate ship
I get to go on a pirate ship, hidey-hodey, hay!
I get to talk like a pirate, too and join all my friends for a great day thanks to:
The Meowers from Missouri--yay!


I told them: Ye be needin' a chaplain on the pirate ship to help the poor souls facin' the plunge from the plank and I be handy fer makin' sure there be soul cleansin's after every raid, and to bless booty.

Ooooh, that be the best part, maateys! Blessin' all da booty me sees hauled onto da ship! Make no mistake--I'll take booty glitterin' or shakin'---harrrrrty harr harrrr!

Aye, mateys,  a jolly roger good time!

This sounds like so much and I can't wait to hear all about your adventures on the high seas!

Your pal, PIp

We're very impressed with your ability to talk like a pirate! We think you will make a purrfect pirate chaplain.

I will now feel much safer on the pirate voyage now that our official chaplain is on board!!!

Fr. Tom Fish said...

Ye should be feelin' safer, me lad. Unscrew me peg leg and ye find a nip of the holy water. Arrr!

You sound as though you have been aboard a pirate ship before Tom - so you'll be able to help us tie those pesky knots.

Arrr Tom, you make a fine pirate chaplain!

I just presented you with an award. I hope you'll accept it.

Hi there Tom. I just came over to meet you because my good friend Cathy Keisha recommended you. I hope you'll be my new friend too. I'm looking forward to more of your posts. (By the way, I might need you to put in a good word for me cuz, well, I used to be an alley cat before I was rescued.

Aaaghh! How on earth did I manage to miss Meow like a pirate day? What could I have possibly been doing that was more important than this? I mean, that's almost as awesome as Christmas. What great calamity had befallen me to prevent my participation? Ah. Nap. Well, that was pretty good too, I have to admit.

Father Tom, you amuse me to no end! Next time, maybe we will join the same crew and set sail from Tortuga to loot and pillage... or at least have a snack and nap in a sunbeam.
