No dancing for me last night, but I had a lovely visit with Mom instead, that included much reading of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. For some reason, I really like reading that book out loud. I've read the beginning (first few chapters at least) to several different people, but have never actually finished the whole thing with anybody. Probably because I don't have a regular storytime-someone these days. But I might get through the whole thing with Mom, since we're actually about 2/3 of the way through it already.

Today we had lunch at Rossmoor with Grandma Jackie, Aunt Pat and cousin Aprill. We also got our new passes for getting into Rossmoor, and they're absolutely horrid. Instead of little cards we can carry in our wallets, we now have to have big ugly bar-code stickers on our windows. It's ridiculous. I could sort of imagine it being reasonable for residents who go in and out all the time, but not for guests. I wonder if I could peel the sticker off, paste it on a piece of paper or something and just wave it in front of the scanning machine at the gate. I'd have to wait to see how the system works, though (it's not in effect for a couple more months).
