Scorpio is Sick

The summer of stress and worry around here has continued until the fall. Yesterday afternoon, Scorpio, who is rarely sick, began vomiting. In about 10 hours, he vomited about a dozen times.

Personal Updates for September 21, 2019

Today was a beautiful sunny day. It may have been the last warm sunny day this year. So, we made the most of it.

Ufi was very active today. He played with his ring a ton. He went in his pool a lot. I just love seeing him enjoying life that much.

Mr. Rogers has been outside for 15 hours. Whenever I sat down, the little guy came looking for attention. He is the friendliest, most loving cat I have ever known. He’s very needy, but Mr. Rogers is great at making you smile.

Scorpio spent lots of time outside too. As I listened to baseball, he settled next to me and wanted to be touched. Being typical Scorpio, if I stopped to change games, he would scratch at my arm or leg. He doesn’t scratch hard enough to hurt, but he lets you know you aren’t doing what you are supposed to be doing.

I played basketball for almost two hours. For a lot of that time, I was also tossing Ufi’s ring. It was a wonderful day! I hope we have more like them, but if this was it–we made the most of it.

Reviewing Two-Income Trap

Elizabeth Warren and her daughter Amelia wrote Two-Income Trap in 2003. It was rereleased in 2015 with a new introduction. Reading the 2015 version in the context of the 2020 election was a thought-provoking experience.

Instead of recapping the premise of the book and quoting interesting passages, I’m going to focus on what I was thinking as I finished the book. There are loads of traditional reviews of Two-Income Trap. I want to focus on what it may tell us about Elizabeth Warren and how it could predict her political actions as president.
