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.

Hats Off to This Annual Event!

Hello effuryone on this Monday as holidays are fast approaching.

This an important day today, one for thoughtful consideration of the planet we live on.

I can't help but think that so many of us around the world are conscious of how important our climate is and how we impact it and how it impacts us. At the same time, there are those who completely ignore this and we can't seem to knock it into their heads or those we join in this effort, are far too lenient when it comes to emissions and overall concern on the part of the population.

I know, pretty deep thinking for this old cat.

For instance, don't let India slide for the next three years, giving them until 2023 to clean up their act.
I think I remember their being given all that time by somebody-or-other. Too lenient.

As far as all the other peace-related topics-grudges, ignorance and politics get in the way of peace in other parts of the world.

That's as far as I'm going to stir that kettle of fish!

We entrust our leaders to respect our thoughts and wishes and act accordingly.

So there. National Election Day is tomorrow..I don't vote, but I'll ask any human reading this that we can easily tie today and tomorrow together.

Over and out,

I agree. They should have started cleaning up their act years ago along with a lot of other countries. It is always the same countries who try to varying degrees, and others which have no intention of doing anything.

Tom, we agree with you, and I've made a voting list so I won't forget whom I want to vote for tomorrow! (I've learned that under the pressure of standing at the voting booth, my choices disappear out of my noggin!)

Maybe we need to clean out the idiots first then the rest might be easier.

love this and am clapping paws together. We actually usually DO vote but I am not voting tomorrow. But you are right, it's perfect how the two days can be tied together and we stirred the "kettle of fish" just a tiny bit more than you, but we totally get NOT wanting to stir it! xoxo

We just wish all humans would get on the ball.

We have no one to vote for here but I'll make TW vote anyway. It's ironic that this same day that we're talking about climate, our leader is pulling out of the Paris Agreement. Sigh. Humans don't care.

We need to do more to save our planet. After all, it’s the only one we have.
