    ....and it’s gone




    +1 had half a doz options bookmarked for a June long weekend family gathering and #every.single.one was booked out for the rest of June weekends within 3 hrs of Gladys announcement.

    Would appear there is some pent up demand.

    don’t delay folks.

    that looks too gentrified for my liking - not the real Paragon, the one owned and operated by a Greek family since forever?

    Great town. And everyone needs to experience The Paragon. You will like. The Formica is to die for.

    Twin Peaks. You had to be a fan of Formica back in ‘89 to appreciate it! It’s a TV moment burned in my memory since.

    In fairness. It seems @Richard Uni days were spent pontificating over David Lynch.
    Whereas mine were spent in a double brick semi detached garage filled with pillows and doonas. Playing Beevis and Butthead on a 54cm crt

    Vague recollections when heading to the snow, reaching Goulburn was a milestone along with mandatory dinner at the Paragon - last decent meal till repeated coming back

    My wife was organising some food for the family and she told me to grab a pic of the kids at the Big Merino. Tick, job done.
