THERE are some jobs that you don't realise exist and the following is one of them.
On Tuesday, Parade was driving just outside of the central business district when she spotted a man in high-visibility clothing standing at the traffic lights.
The man was not about to cross the road, but rather was using a long pole with a cloth or sponge on it to clean the traffic lights.
It had never occurred to Parade before that traffic lights, unless seriously vandalised, were on the list of things around Bathurst that had to be cleaned.
Parade was also fascinated by the method of cleaning them, surprised to see that there was no ladder involved at all.
SAME NAME, VERY DIFFERENT LOOK
A FRIEND of Parade's recently moved to Scotland from the Central West, on the hunt for a new adventure.
They have been there for around a month now and have been sharing updates on social media about all the things they are experiencing.
Last week, they shared some photos of an area blanketed in snow.
Parade thought the pictures were very beautiful and, of course, a world away from the weather in Bathurst.
But then Parade found herself giggling when she saw the name of the place that her friend had tagged in the post: Dunkeld.
That's nothing like our Dunkeld, Parade found herself thinking.
A shot to share your work
PARADE would like to invite people to submit their photos for the opportunity to be featured in the Western Advocate's online morning weather post.
The post is published early on weekdays, letting people know what the weather forecast is for the day.
Instead of just text, a photo submitted by a local reader is added to the post.
The photos can be of anything, from sunrises and sunsets to local landmarks or animals, and can be taken on either a camera or a phone.
Anyone who would like to contribute a photo should email it, their name and a description to firstname.lastname@example.org.
