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.

From...The Sound of Mewsic!

Friends and furriends,

Those who know me are painfully aware that I can never leave lyrics alone.

To the tune of "My Favorite Things," here is:

by Julie Mackenzie

Anastasia and Tinker
And Chopin and Bridgie
They are delinquents
Their sins make me itchy.

I tape the cabinets
All across in red
To keep my Chopin
From clawing instead

Stasia all fluffy
And slow as molasses

Bridgie the baby who
Catches long passes

All of these characters
Stuffed with herring
These are a few of my
Favorite beings

When Chopin bites

When the Tink sings

When I'm feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite beings
And then I don't feel so bad.

Merry Christmas, peace and blessings in the New Year from all of us ~ our angels, too.
