Alaskan Laundry Mats

I watched in awe as my grandmother scrubbed my t-shirt in a five gallon bucket with a small washboard on the back porch using rain water we had collected. I had never seen clothes washed by hand, but in rural Alaska, that's what you do when there is no other option.

Fast forward a few summers and the Alaskan Queen, a fish buyer and scow, began anchoring in the bay during the fishing season. This was HUGE when it came to washing clothes. My cousins and I would load up the skiff with our laundry, make the four minute ride, tie up, and help each other onto the scow with our sacks of clothes, shower bags, and often rain gear. On board were three washers and dryers, two showers, and a phone. Talk about services. I remember killing time by showering (we just had a sun shower at the cabin), and digging out a damp calling card so I could call my best friend, and neighbor, back in Juneau. Does anyone remember 1-800-COLLECT? *69, *67? Those were the days, eh?

Leaving the laundry/shower room, you could cross to the other side to the small grocery store. Passing an open section where fishing boats would tie up and sell their fish. A worker or two would be there gutting and stuffing fish with ice. That was another thing, you could buy ice! When you don't have a refrigerator, ice is life. Aside from that, fish processors were always in need. My cousin lasted one day on that job, the smell lingers and makes it even harder to meet boys.

A little oasis of city life aboard one boat. Probably one of the few times I have fond memories of doing my laundry haha. The Scow no longer comes to Port Alexander and I miss the days when the entire town was anticipation of its arrival. 

When I met up with Sydney for an afterwork photoshoot it brought all those memories back. Straight up chillin' on top of the dryer with wet hair, ice cream, and waiting for my turn for the phone. 

 

Alaskans, what are your laundry mat memories?!

My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.

Omg I Finally Got Helped !! I’m so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out.. I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I’m so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email emutemple@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp cell number +2347012841542
