Were in the BVI at the moment and I have seen some buckets id love to try out. Apparently some really nice ones get flown in once in a while,,,,These looked like the kind that take alot of maintenance, couldnt take abuse well, and have only have had the most luxurious soaps and most expensive mops in them.

He is right. I've never been attacked by a shark or bear but I have been tripped by buckets or have been grabbed by their handles!

Others find other ways to make friends with their buckets.

What the bucket?

Found a bucket and had to revive this old thread. Had a big rain my wife saw a bucket washed up in the creek behind the house. So she calls and asks if she should retrieve it even though it is weird bucket. Of course says I, any bucket is useful.

Then I got home and saw this. Have never seen such a bucket. What manner of bucket have we found? Is it some kind of alien bucket?

Re: Do You Remember Your First Bucket?

That's what's known as a "well bucket". Brings up the maximum amount of water from the bottom of a narrow well.

Re: Do You Remember Your First Bucket?

My! What a tall, lean, dark bucket! I belive the phrase "a tall drnk of water".....

Sigh...my own bucket seems squat and dumpy now.
