Light Post Outpost

Light Post Outpost

In the imagination of a young boy, an ordinary lamp post can serve an even greater purpose than just as a lowly bringer of illumination. Was walking in a village and I passed by a house that had this little lamp post. Seeing it reminded me of a lamp post that was in a former house of ours. My friends and I would play with this lamp post and imagine that it was a GI Joe outpost.

One time the glass case broke so it had an opening where we could actually place our GI Joe's in. The threat of electrocution never crossed our minds. Then again, we usually played with it during the day so there was no need for the light to be on... hehehe

I remember when I used to play with a 1/48 model kit aircraft the lamp post would serve as an air traffic tower. I sure do miss that lamp post. Maybe if I get a chance to pass by that old house I'll be able to take a picture of it, it has happened before *snicker*
