Wordless Wednesday - No Spittin' No Cussin' Go Directly to Jail

St Augustine FL Old Jail House

On our visit to St Augustine Florida last winter, the oldest city in the United States,

 we stopped at the Old Jail House where we took this photo.  Even if they were quick to

send you to jail back then, at least Floridians have a sense of humor about their past.

Dawn, You never know when you might run for public office and your opponent would use it against you.

Michael, Bet it was a bit rougher back when they used it every day.

Carol, We enjoyed the town and even though it was set up for tourists like us it was very enjoyable.

That would make a nice poster or painting in a game room! Love the colors and the unusual jail!

Terry - Ya gotta just love some of the historic signs from our past.  I recall one that was near a WPA project of the Depression era.  It had a little documentary that said, those that worked on the WPA project had to have at least 3 teeth in their head.

Glad you enjoyed St. Augustine! Living in Jacksonville Beach, I get the chance to go down a few time per year, as it's only about 45 minutes away - love the pic, I have not been to the Old Jail House yet.
