Cat Herders Day, on December 15, is all about those situations where “it’s like herding cats.” If you don’t understand the idiom, just try to organize a bunch of cats and move them from one area to another. I guarantee you’ll get the picture. Rather than taking a handful of cowboys for a few thousand head of cattle, you often need a handful of catchers per cat!
By the way, I now have “To Dream the Impossible Dream” (from “Man of La Mancha”) firmly stuck in my head.
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'”
