Is being up in the "Dandenongs" like having an attack of the "vapors", or the "fantods"?

Only if it involves Paddle Boats. Ye olde the better.
(I did visit beautiful Emerald Lake as a child, and this scene was still the closest approximation of the Anglo otherness as depicted on the covers of old Schoolgirl Annuals that I had seen. Who knows - if at some later date I had been paddling with a waving boyfriend, the planetary alignment of imagination may have caused the vapours...Too late now to fulfill that dream - the olde wooden boats have gone for plastic tractor-style, every one)
(I was all set to post this last night - but was advised by flatmate, the churlish norabone, that I've posted on this sort of thing before several times, it was recycled content and boring the first time... New readers may like it - unless of course they wandered in from google looking for champagne bottle pot sound wav. Cheers.)
Dandenongs- that would be up Upwey way?
