I got into a lot of trouble while I was away on vacation. Some areas are not as friendly to outsiders as you would think that they would be....... I tried to plead my innocents, it did not work... The set me right up next the the court house for all going by to see.... Check out the photo, you will see what I mean.......

At least the locals seem to have been fairly kind hearted - you didn't get rotten eggs and tomatoes thrown at you, it seems! I think those stocks must have been built for little people. They don't half make you bend down!

Having watched Banged Up Abroad I thought you got put in jail. However when I saw your photo I really liked your joke and it made me laugh so very much. I am so interested in history and that is one photo that you will have to treasure my friend.

Hey louise! Nice photo! I haven't been to Virginia in years! It is a beautiful place to visit with lots to see! I'm glad you had fun there! Definitely didn't look too comfortable to be locked up! Better be more careful when visiting new places! Next time don't get caught!

Well I hope you learned your lesson, Louise! Can you imagine if you had to stand that way for even just thirty minutes!? It would be the only time I would ever bemoan being tall. ; )

Would be very hard to taller people for sure. I am only 5'4" and I was all bent over. so had to be very hard for a man to stand like that for a long time.

Hey, funny photo! Do they still punish bad dudes that way? You sure look uncomfortable. Tell us more about your trip and how to avoid "getting in trouble" while in new places.
