What’s with all the ornamental pineapples?
A sea captain would spear a pineapple to his fence post to let friends know he was home safely and to please visit so he could regale his guests with tales of the high seas. The pineapple today is a symbol of hospitality.
When I was in the Navy and returned home to my wife, we warded off such visits with any excuse. Mine was, “Sorry, I’m busy doing my taxes.” July, November - it didn’t matter.
