IF you close your eyes and think about it hard enough, you can almost smell the delightful taste of a Pluto pup.

This is a fantastic time of year, according to Parade, with the Royal Bathurst Show just a week away.

There’s an awful lot of things to love about the show, according to Parade, and it’s not just the Pluto pups.

This great family event is always a crowd pleaser – from the rides, to the showbags and the tasty treats that you can only get once a year in caravans at the show.

It’s been a couple of years since Parade has enjoyed a day at the show, and she already has some plans for her time.

Checking out the animals is always a must-do, so is sideshow alley and the showbag area, but then again there’s always a lot of great food – like Pluto pups.

If you’re like Parade and want to get the most out of your Royal Bathurst Show visit, do no miss this Saturday’s Western Advocate for your free show guide.

It’s chock full of music, entertainment, competitions, showbag, produce and all sorts of other vital information to ensure your visit to the show is amazing.

The serious side to Easter eggs

THE giving and receiving of Easter eggs is a very serious matter in Parade’s household.

Parade’s other half prefers a certain brand of chocolate Easter bunny, apparently no others are comparable.

So in order to keep Parade’s other half happy she purchased the ‘required’ brand of Easter bunny, and also a few extras for friends who were visiting for the long weekend.

What she never realised, however, is her friend’s household is just as particular in the types of eggs they like.

When Parade was handing over the bunnies to her house guests, they too handed over eggs – the exact same type.

Apparently this preferred brand is preferred not just in Parade’s house but in her friend’s home as well.

But, don’t get Parade started on chocolate advent calendars at Christmas time and what brand and how many are supposed to be in the house, according to her other half.
