Friday the 13th in my Humble Little Town

First of all, I just gotta say this. On the Today Show just now they were talking about today being Friday the 13th and how hotels don't have a room #13 or a 13th floor etc. Wanna hear something funny? Though our town is also known for it's sweet onions and its more than 100 wineries, what we're really known for is the Washington State Penitentiary. So guess what the address of the State Pen. is?

1313 13th Street

There you have it. In case you want to visit, you can't say you couldn't remember the address. I mean, come on...that took a lot of doing to make sure that number and that street were used when building the Penitentiary. Sheesh. Can't get more blatant than that. ~Karen

Are you serious, the address for the state pen? that's worthy of, say, Ripley's Believe it or Not. Say, how about the telephone number? =) EE
