The chewing gum industry indirectly keeping people in work. Grin First time I've seen one of these little steam cleaners, and the chap certainly had his work cut out. A job for life I reckon.

I never thought of that before, Barbara is right, I can't remember having some stuck to my shoe for years. I haven't checked under a table for years either. Thanks for the sticky memory Chris.

When he's finished in London there's plenty of work for man and machine in Newcastle. Come to that there must be a few years' worth in our little town alone Sad
The hose and its shadow link the central items together very clleverly.

Used to be the bane of my life when I was a publican. Specially under tables, could've done with a mini version of this. Hope he doesn't stick to his job.

Lovely bright machine, man at work, and a never-ending job I should think. Our streets are covered with it, despite the little containers now provided. I sometimes think I'm seeing coins on the ground!
