idle observations

Posted in: General

Overheard recently on a Footscray street:
“Well, they can stick their crappy house right up their Kaniva pass” (man – bad temperedly – into mobile phone whilst gesticulating wildly.)

Where? (and how???)

Which is completely unrelated to the notable postmark on mail I received from the UK:


Happy birthday Dr Who!

    Kaniva is a small town in far western Victoria
    beyond Dimboola. Noted for its grain silo and
    (once) for its hexagonal signalbox. It’s a
    nice place noted for neither passes or bad
    tempered men yelling into mobile phones.

    Perhaps your gesticulating friend meant
    ‘Khyber Pass’?

    The Cullen clan extends its web of interconnections across to Kaniva – so I was aware both of its geographic location AND its grain silo. The signal box is new information – so thank you.
    Given the circumstances, however, I did not think it propitious to point out the Kaniva/Khyber confusion to the gesticulating fellow!
