Why Phi?


Ok... so not everyone I met on the trip understood the concept. My favorite fella was the police officer in Ellis Kansas. This was the place with the sweet little city campground that was such a joy to find at the end of a long day driving through Kansas. It was his job to collect the fees (a whopping 15$) and make certain we were all good people. He let me stay anyway..

Now there's not a lot going in in Ellis, so he stayed and chatted with me for a long time. We talked about the trip and my writing about it, and I asked him where I might be getting wi=fi. I drove through town when I first arrived, hoping to find somewhere that would allow me to post, but there wasn't even a restaurant in Ellis. A donut shop (which was filled with wonderful old men no matter when I drove by) was not the answer.

Once I explained the concept to the sheriff, he assured me that there wasn't any such thing in Ellis.

I told him that wasn't the question.. I WAS getting wi=fi , but couldn't figure where or how.

He was mightily surprised...

Now, all of this is leading up to the announcement to follow..

I HAVE WI FI!!... in my own little house, in my own little livingroom/bedroom/den/kittyroom/kitchen... anywhere I wish!

I'm so proud...

Cool!! Our little city is about to get a coffee shop (it's ready to open, just waiting for the asshole inspectors to get around to inspecting) ; coffee, soup & sandwiches & Wi-Fi. Our first Wi-Fi joint in town!
