Well, here we are at the Ramada Inn in Galena, Ill. For the historically uninformed, Galena is the hometown of Ulysses S. Grant. It has a couple museums about him, a "historically maintained" mainstreet full of shops and restaurant, a gorgeous river running through it. We are here for a day in a state park, and some time soaking up whatever history we can.
But here, like The Dells, people are simply shocked to see someone sitting in the lobby (here, the only place the wireless works) writing on a computer. What the &*(^???? And THEY ALL THINK I'M WORKING!!
They don't "get" blogs, or friendly emails, or whatever...
I don't get drinking brown colored, tasteless hot water and calling it coffee. (Midwest coffee is DREADFUL. I'm hoping we can find a coffeeshop that has the courage to make the good stuff).
