PushMe PullYou

pushmepullyouAnd so we may be here for another ..year? More?

The start to the process didn’t go well so we are looking at all our options.

I do know I am winding down what I can learn at my present position and likely need to look for something more challenging .

Part time has been helpful this past nearly two years but the money for it isn’t great. Not bad, but not great.

We have to be prepared to stay  or to go. Trying to act as if in both situations is…something.


Pushmi–pullyus are now extinct. That means, there aren’t any more. But long ago, when Doctor Dolittle was alive, there were some of them still left in the deepest jungles of Africa; and even then they were very, very scarce. They had no tail, but a head at each end, and sharp horns on each head. They were very shy and terribly hard to catch. The black men get most of their animals by sneaking up behind them while they are not looking. But you could not do this with the pushmi–pullyu — because, no matter which way you came towards him, he was always facing you. And besides, only one half of him slept at a time. The other head was always awake — and watching. This was why they were never caught and never seen in Zoos. Though many of the greatest huntsmen and the cleverest menagerie–keepers spent years of their lives searching through the jungles in all weathers for pushmi–pullyus, not a single one had ever been caught. Even then, years ago, he was the only animal in the world with two heads.
