If we had an annual awards ceremony (we don’t) and were to dish out prizes (we don’t) for telegraphic excellence then this wonderful example of post-retirement appropriation would undoubtedly win our prestigious Golden Pole Award (it didn’t, there’s no such thing).
Kenny McLennan, presumably from Oban, noticed contractors replacing his local (GPO 1940) DP1 and so he retrieved it (read purloined) and modified it as bird feeder for his rockery. This is just fantastic Kenny. We at TPAS HQ are inspired. And the Tom Tits of Oban won’t know they’re born. Mind you that little scamp of a white doggie on the right there looks like he’s just left you something in your plant pot.
*Oban wan Kenobi. I really thought that by the time I clicked the Publish button on this I would have come up with a witty headline. As you can see I failed.
This year I will be passing through Oban twice. #1 mid April, via the ferry terminal and heading for Barra, then north to Stornoway for my 3 week long expedition checking out poles of the Outer Hebrides (watch this space) then #2 the Glenforsa Fly-in on on Mull, 24th & 25th May. Refuelling at Oban probably. If we make it that far that is, in a 1962 vintage Rallye Cub. I’m telling you all this to give you all time to organise street parties and bunting and stuff.
