February 15 - Knights Of The Asphalt

In the delivery world, President's Day is a working day off.
I did two runs and I went record shopping.
I found an LP entitled How To CB.
It came with a pamphlet containing the FCC rules and regulations, a guide with the Official Ten Code, Slang Names For Major US Cities, and a Slanguage Dictionary.

10-11 means you're talking too fast
10-70 means fire
10-90 means I have TVI
I hope there's a salve for that.

Here are some slang names for major US cities:

Anchorage, Alaska - The Iceberg
Buffalo, New York - The Buffer
Chattanooga, Tennessee - Choo-Choo Town
Cleveland, Ohio - Dirty City
Corpus Christi - Taco Town
Erie, Pennsylvania - Dedd City
