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.

Sock Sorting Saturday

Hi, Bridgie here--

Boy, did I have a surprise this morning! Mom's all ambitious and, wouldn't you know it, I had to get caught up in it! Next thing I know, she's in the sock drawer, going into shock.

"We need to pair socks! This is getting out of hand!" she shrieks. And, of course, my help is required.
Here's how it went:


Socks to the left of me, socks to the right
None of them paired, it's such a fright!

There's a sock for all my colors
But none like me in sight!

Shhhh! She left the room, so I think I'm okay
Where's my Birdie? I wanna play!

Oh! What me not working?
How can that be?
Mom sneaked in and is now looking at me!

No harm done, she says.
Putting the socks away
We'll find mates for these others
Another day.
