THE BIANKA LOG BLOG: A DIFFERENT KIND OF BUCKET LIST

mbianka -- thanks for the idea! I just went out and made a windshield wiper fluid bottle into a dippy bucket. We go through about one kids' beach bucket a year -- tied to a few feet of 1/4" line for bringing up wash water. But inevitably they fade and crack after sunlight exposure and heavy use, or the handle pops off at the worst time. I like the homemade recycled version much better.

Re: The Bucket list (no the other one)

Which came first? The kitty litter or the bucket? Adopt a cat or five and you'll have an unlimited supply of free buckets.

Glad you like it. My homemade/recycled ones usually last several years. They make good dingy bailing buckets too because you can bend them easily to get into the corners.

David! How do you think of these things?!?! I could fill a bucket with tears for all the times you have made me laugh so hard I cried.

But, now that I think about it - please don't tell me anything you know about men who wrap their monitor in tinfoil.

Well IMO a bucket is much more useful than say a bag for this function. This subject reminded me of a joke that Troublemaker posted on the joke thread last month:

"A young cowboy walks into the town cafe. He sits at the counter and notices an old cowboy with his arms folded, staring blankly at a full bowl of chilli.
After fifteen minutes of just sitting there staring at it, the young cowboy bravely asked the old cowpoke, "If you ain't gonna eat that, mind if I do?"
The older cowboy slowly turns his
head toward the young wrangler and in his best cowboy manner says, "Nah, go ahead."
Eagerly, the young cowboy reaches over and slides the bowl over to his place and starts spooning in it with delight. He gets nearly down to the bottom and notices a dead mouse in the chili. The sight was shocking and he immediately barfs up the chili into the bowl.
The old cowboy quietly says, "Yep, that's as far as I got, too."

Keeping my socks fresh.
Canvas buckets are more environmentally friendly, not that I care any more. Have you seen the way teenagers behave. Then again, maybe I'll outlive most of them.

Re: The Bucket list (no the other one)

Eleven and mbianka - you two are disgusting! Thankfully I have a big bucket nearby. How did it go in that Monty Python scene? "Better bring a bucket."?? Bwahaha!

Re: The Bucket list (no the other one)

I put chicken wire pinched over the top and sluff my peelers by hanging it overboard by a rope tied to the handle, for a nice soft crab sandwich (Chesapeake bay).

You can also use cloth buckets a winch covers. They are about $5 and can b used as a bucket too. We use the bucket handles as holders for the cloths you always need to wipe up spills, wipe condensation, or what ever.
