Well Fulcrum I usta feel the same way but I'm an alcohaulic who had to give that stuff up. Nowdays it's my bikes, my cats, appliances and a big cup of coffee. Being single, I can enjoy them all inside the house at the same time.

Back in the old days, when I was young and in the Navy, and single, it was easy. About every 200 yards on all streets with base enterances there were Laundry and Dry Cleaning shops that also had taylors to make it fit right. All us sailors would use our laundry bag all week, carry it out the gate on Friday on the way to downtown. Drop it off at the Laundry and on Sunday before walking back into the base, we stopped and picked it up. All starched, pressed,folded or on hangers whichever was appropriate. Cost back then for a weeks worth of clothes and uniforms, about $3.50 to $5.00 bucks, depending on what you had in there. The Laundry only part was actually priced by the pound. We couldn't have pets in the barracks, so it was just our bikes we cared about and of course whatever sweetthing we could talk into gettin on the back.
