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.

Lent or It's a Cruel, Cruel World

Hi, friends-

I know I've already said I'm giving up my plane for Lent, but that doesn't seem to me very practical. How will I get around? Walk? Unthinkable!

If I give up my plane, I'll have to give up my galas.
Give up my top hat, my tie and tails..or make that one tie and a tail.

Maybe I should just give up my race car. But, then I'll be letting down the team. We're headed for the Fishworthy 500 in a week or two and we're expected to win. Nope. Can't give that up.

Maybe I could give up my Jack Reacher reading for the next month and ten days. But, what would I read in the meantime? Oh, no! Not a Jacques Cousteau memoir about the sea and fish. No!!!!!

I'll have to think on this some more.
