LikeLike Reply Well, they were legit back in the day. Not like the dressing rooms at the YMCA. LikeLike Reply Haha, good to know! LikeLike I remember the ‘Y’ in Downtown San Dog (San Diego). It was old – school. Lot’s of ‘interesting’ characters hung out there. I was just a simple sailor then an’ used to divide my time between the ‘Y’ and the titty bars in Downtown. Sometimes I would hum that old song, “Downtown’ by Petula Clark…. Happy memories for me. I met some strange people. “When you’re alone and life is making you lonely You can always go downtown When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry Seems to help, I know, downtown” LikeLike You make it sound so innocent and free and easy. LikeLike Actually, when you are twenty-eight. Everything is free and easy. I have good memories of hanging out with dope fiends, derelicts, sailors, and myself. Those were good times. I was young and bullet-proof. 🙂 LikeLike Does a Turkish bath have anything to do with Turkish Taffy or Turkish Delight? LikeLike Reply Don’t ask me; I do my own bathing.

Shirley. LikeLike Mele Kalikimaka, Maxwell. LikeLike Plenty of room at the Hotel Continental. It may or may not be due to the Turkish baths.
