Hey, hey, Pineapple fans! We are facing yet another excessive heat warning in T-town (yes, Mo, it’s HOT!). After nearly two weeks of sweltering heat and record-breaking temps, I’m over it. I’m ready for some rain. Or a blizzard. Or anything, really. Oh, and it’s an ozone alert day, too, so don’t waste time mowing the dead grass or pumping gas before dark, because the villagers WILL come after you with torches.
There will be a slight break in the heat tomorrow, as it’s only supposed to be 100 degrees. Pack a sweater.
It’s been another incredibly busy week for the Pineapple People. Jay attended the JA Jewelry Show in New York City, and he had quite an experience. I’ll let him tell you all about it sometime. Let’s just say he met a lot of interesting folks, did a lot of people watching, and learned a few things about hand sanitizer.
On Monday of this week, we did a production for local senior photographer Taste the World Photography. We had a great time with Cindy, Fannypack, and the spokesmodels. We spent most of the day shooting in Cindy’s downtown Tulsa loft studio, and then finished the day at an amazing swimming pool that was kindly offered to us by Stacey Pennington. All of our crew did a fantastic job, and everything came together nicely. We appreciate everyone’s kindness, generosity and hard work to make this shoot a success. Can’t wait to see the finished product!
Yesterday was another busy and fun day, with Barlow, Jay and I hitting the road and heading north to Wichita, Kansas, to meet with a potential Pineapple picker. We had a terrific time, and the staff at the dealer group was a lot of fun: just our kind of folks. Thanks to the gang for a catered lunch, and for inspiring Barlow to plank on the conference room table. We couldn’t resist.
On the way home, we stopped in Cowboy Country aka Pineapple Paradise aka Stillwater, and chowed on some cheese fries from Eskimo Joe’s. And then we planked some more.
We’ve had three productions in three weeks, and it’s been pretty eventful around here. Now we have a couple of production-free weeks…to plan the next one! Next on the books is a trip to Florida for the Cadillac Dealers of the South meeting, then it’s off to Nashville for more production. This summer is definitely keeping us on our toes, and we’re loving every minute of it.
This morning I read about Sandy McMillan, the woman who was asked to leave an Oregon Walmart for wearing a string bikini top to shop at the store. McMillan and her sister went to pick up a few grocery items, and she wore her bikini top and shorts to combat the 90 degree heat. (Ninety degrees? That must be nice.) A few minutes after entering the store, McMillan was approached by an associate and asked to cover up or leave. Now McMillan is embarrassed, and claiming that she didn’t do anything wrong: “I was horrified. I am embarrassed….It’s wrong. If you don’t like the way someone looks, don’t look at them….I hadn’t done anything obnoxious or outlandish.” Personally, I think she did something wrong by wearing that ensemble in the first place. You can watch a short video of her interview HERE and see if you agree with me. I wonder if she’ll make it onto People of Walmart!
Well, Pineapple fans, have a fabuloso Friday and a wonderful weekend. Remember, if you are too hot this weekend, and need to run to Walmart, don’t wear a string bikini. It won’t end well for you.
