    Well just watched a program on beeb 2 about the Falveler slums of Brazil and how the habitants go about their daily life and make a living. Showed one bloke who paces the beaches dressed as a pineapple selling you guessed it pineapples.
    There he his one day doing a roaring trade the next day it shows him staring at a empty beach as the rain lashes it down all day... funny thing he's still there in full pineapple uniform....lol just in case he might sell a pineapple...lol just goes to show the weather effects many different business's around the world .....at least we don't have to walk around dressed like a pineapple....!!!!
    Well I don't not sure about everyone else...lol

    Climbing the ladder dressed as a pineapple might be an health and safety issue. Then again, if it was nicely padded then a ladder fall shouldnt be so painful.;)

    See that what happens when you are stuck in your comfort zone as if he had any sense the pineapple man should be flogging umbrellas on rainy days too. At least he wouldn’t get so wet and others can see that you can still have fun on the beach with a brollie dressed up as a pineapple. :D

    Can you use a pineapple as an applicator? or hot pineapple juice to heat you up on rainy days? Rains a pest, got a new job today, custy paid me and headed to work, started bucketing when 3/4 way through, but paid to get job done. Job done, ch ching. Canvassed area due to rain, got a large house, big £50'r, think I way undercharged though, but went home happy, despite only earning £40. Roll on tommorow,

    Stupid weather, could barely sleep last night as thought it was going to be a great day, ended up getting rained off twice today, stoped to havelunch then got soaked when half way round next house grrrr. This work is an hour from home so phoned wife who said it was nice so headed back to do a new big house i picked up when i got rained of yesterday so not a bad but still frustrating. Thought i was going to have a tuffering good day aswell.
