Re: Bucket photos

We're still shopping for one. We have considered the pros and cons, like wood vs steel, canvas vs plastic. We wrote it all down. We call it our bucket list.

There once was a girl from Nantucket,
went shopping once for a bucket,
but, to no avail,
she could not find her pail,
so went home,
chiming "oh forget it."

Re: Bucket photos

My bucket is out in the boat, awaiting a photograph. . . . But Shorebird's bucket limerick reminded me of this series, which took place among several newspapers back in 1924:

There once was a man from Nantucket,
Who kept all of his cash in a bucket,
But his daughter, named Nan,
Ran away with a man,
And as for the bucket, Nantucket.
—Princeton Tiger


But he followed the pair to Pawtucket,
The man and the girl with the bucket;
And he said to the man,
He was welcome to Nan,
But as for the bucket, Pawtucket.
—Chicago Tribune


Then the pair followed Pa to Manhasset,
Where he still held the cash as an asset,
But Nan and the man
Stole the money and ran,
And as for the bucket, Manhasset.
—Exchange


Of this story we hear from Nantucket,
About the mysterious loss of a bucket,
We are sorry for Nan,
As well as the man—
The cash and the bucket, Pawtucket.
—Pawtucket Times

Re: Bucket photos

The best buckets come from the farm store. As grumpy cat had absconded with ol' Red my old red bucket, to use as a water dish (Dekat thinks he's a tiger), I had to find a new bondage bucket to satisfy my wicked desires.

After much hunting high and low. I found my newest true love, (Think there's a country song about that). at a local farm store. It was sitting there smiling at me. Bright shinny red, Heavy thick plastic, Real Strong Handle. You could tell that this was a country bucket. He had a bump in the middle of the handle, just begging for a rope to be tied around it. It even had one side of the bucket flattened, so I knew it could take a little abuse.

Well It was love at first sight. So now I have a sweet two gallon bucket, which is just the right size for a refined lady. Sparky (What you don't name your buckets...) loves to be tied and hauled around. He never complains about being tossed overboard and hauled back up. He seems to enjoy it.. Ah a match made in heaven....

Sorry no photo at the moment, Sparky is hiding out in the lazzerette. Bad Bad Bucket... Where is that whip.... Sorry got to run...

Re: Bucket photos

Sailorchic, you've got yourself a horse bucket. They call 'em "flat-backs." They hang on a hook with the flat against the stall wall, for feed or water.

They are built stout -- really excellent buckets. Better than the standard 5-gallon variety.

We've got dozens of them -- as horses is where all of our non-sailing money disappears to. . . .

Re: Bucket photos

Mine might be a goat bucket as its just 2 gallons, though the Big horse buckets were just a few bucks more. I went smaller as its easier on my back hauling back up.

But Yes, Very nice Buckets. The flat side makes it easier to carry too, least for me. I use to have goats, chickens, and llama's some years ago. I like the water better as there is no poop to scoop.

Re: Bucket photos

I apologize that these bucket photos don't feature my boat as well. . . . But alas, the boat is under wraps till spring, and we have 3 feet of snow on the ground.

However, here's an awesome indestructible 2-gallon rubber feed bucket that we use to transfer water from the trough to the stalls. It's a damn fine bucket, a bucket you could spend your whole life with. It would be a good addition to any boat. (Glove added for scale.)

Also, a pic of Mojo --one of our 5 horsies -- with his favorite red flatback.

Not pictured . . . is my favorite 5-gallon homemade lookee bucket, which is associated only with warm clear water, NOT snow and ice.

Re: Bucket photos

Those photos don't show up for me when I view my post. Hmm. May need to re-do?
