This booklet showcases cards from all over the state of Washington and is meant give a small glimpse into the variety of artists, styles, locations and handles that defined CB Radio QSL cards in the Evergreen State. All cards are from the collection of Jordan Smith of the website 73sand88s.com

For this heavily illustrated booklet (created for 3 day exhibition in Seattle), Public Collectors joined forces with QSL card collector Jordan Smith to produce a 40 page booklet that features over 60 QSL cards from Smith’s collection.

I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THIS CAUSE IM TIRED OF PEOPLES SHIT.

YES. I AM A FEMALE.
DOES BEING THIS CERTAIN GENDER MEAN I CANNOT MAKE “BOY JOKES”?
DOES BEING A GIRL MEAN I CANT HELP CARRY SOMETHING HEAVY BECAUSE I AM TOO “feminine”?
BECAUSE RIGHT NOW, BEING A GIRL MEANS I CANT BURP OR FART IN PUBLC. BEING A GIRL MEANS I CANT LIKE PLAYING BASEBALL OR FOOTBALL OR WRESTLING WITHOUT BEING CALLED A DYKE. BEING A GIRL IS SO HARD BECAUSE WE HAVE NO MANY RESTRICTIONS IN TODAYS SOCIETY. THIS SOUNDS LIKE SUCH A FEMINIST THING TO SAY AND IM NOT EVEN A FEMINIST [dont have anything against feminism, i believe every single person, living or dead, can and should be equal. if wanting equality in the world for both men and women has some sort of label then by god label me as that..] BUT WHY CANT WOMEN DO THE SAME A MAN CAN?
MY GRANDMOTHER RAISED ME BECAUSE MY MOTHER COULDNT ALONE. MY GRANDMOTHER TOOK ME IN WHEN MY MOM WAS TAKING THOSE DRUGS AND WHEN MY FATHER.. MY FUCKING FATHER KICKED MY MOTHER AND I OUT SO HE CAN START A LIFE WITH SOME OTHER BROAD. MY FUCKING GRANDMOTHER TOOK ME IN WHEN SHE HAD ALREADY TAKEN IN MY OLDER SISTER. MY FATHER WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE ONE WORKING, PAYING THE BILLS, AND KEEPING FOOD ON THE TABLE BUT HE DIDNT. WHO DID? MY GRANDMA. A FUCKING WOMAN. THAT WOMAN IS THE STRONGEST FUCKING LADY IN MY LIFE. STRONGER THAN ANY FUCKING MAN. SO IF YOU THINK JUST BECAUSE I AM A GIRL THAT MEANS THAT IT RESTRICTS MY ABILITY TO DO A CERTAIN THING? THINK A-FUCKING-GAIN.
