Why would anyone return unwanted cards? It sure would have helped the
environmental impact by putting them in the recycling bin........Right?
I still remember the 1st qsl cards I got and the thrill of getting home
from school to run to the mailbox to see if I got any new cards. This
is part of getting people hooked!
We continue to move away from personalized things that made us fall in
