The Renn Faire was from 10 am to 10 pm today, so I figured I could sleep in and get there around 11, but the water was turned off in the neighborhood without warning, so no shower and it set me back a bit.

Banana and PNB breakfast, but I had to open a new jar of PNB and stir it up. Easier with the handy tool, but it still takes time.

My GPS did not know where the largest park in Las Vegas was, and entering its address gave a route somewhere in Arizona. I knew it was on Sunset, so I headed for the big Sunset Station casino hotel, but in the wrong direction. A U-turn fixed that. It's a long drive but I've been by it a few times. It took 10 minutes at a 3-cars-only left turn light to get into the park, but the long winding drive through showed that there was no parking available, and droves of people were walking in from blocks away so when I got to the exit I just drove home. I thought about trying again later, but no photo ops after dark, so I'll try again tomorrow, early.

Only junk mail in the mailbox - was expecting something from Humana pharmacy**.

FB and Twitter, then on Tivo the 6 am channel 3 news had a lot on Tom Hawley, who had become my favorite local broadcaster. He passed away two days ago. Read all about it here. They also had a segment on the 5.9% cost of living Social Security increase for 2022, but mentioned they expect Medicare to raise its monthly fee, that announcement will be in a few weeks. So my $130 increase may be less. 

Fedex made an early delivery of some medical supplies, UPS messaged that they won't be delivering Mom's Meals because all they had was the pre-order, not the actual package. Which is supposed to be delivered on the 19th.

Spook was right outside the gate, looking in, and the light was on which meant Jade was oot and aboot, so I let Spook in. She nosed around quietly, at one point spotted Jade on the tree, but just moved along - Jade did not seem to notice though she must have. After a few minutes Spook left the room on her own.

I went online and made a vet appointment for Jade for early November. Need something to semi-sedate her, and get her nails trimmed.

Watched the 90 Day The Other Way teaser, all the couples they showed have dealt with their various crises, for now. Penn & Teller had some excellent acts -a 16-year-old girl fooled them with a combination of fast hands and tech. Channel surfing got me a beautifully shot but very disturbing show on overfishing. I've known about factory ships since covering one in Astoria in 1973.

Weekend, so no PTI.  I caught the final kneel-down as some LA team beat the UW. Vegas hockey team lost big-time, Seattle Kraken lost by 1 in OT.

**USPS delivered the Humana package to my door, my PCP sent me an Accu-check meter and accessories, which was not the plan. The plan was to get One Touch test strips. I tried the new meter, the pro is its test strip is easier to apply a sample to, the con is the phone app is kind of stupid. But at least it has one. One Touch says they will help pay for their test strips, but the web site says not if you have medicare. Boo, Hiss.

Get out of bed on time, head for the Renn Faire early.
