Has anyone sailed thru the Pacific gyre lately? Maybe there is a nice Japanese bucket floating around out there just waiting to be rescued...........

I've seen a lot of horse, but none of them had buckets that big!

Those have to be fake!

Re: Do You Remember Your First Bucket?

We did not have much money when I was growing up, but my parents were hard working and loved me, and there were lots of buckets in the house, so I think I had a fairly good childhood.

There were buckets for washing the vegetables my father grew that fed me.
There were buckets for kitchen scraps to go back into the garden.
There were buckets for the manure we got from stables to go into the garden.
There were buckets for wood shavings when my father built our furniture and sailing dinghy.
There were buckets for concrete when we built new mailboxes or fences.
There were buckets for when we painted the house.
There were buckets to make sand castles with moats and drawbridges and towers and tunnels.
There were buckets for wooden toys and tennis balls and cricket bats.
There were buckets for aluminium cans and copper wire and bottles to sell for money.
There were buckets for water so I could clean other people's houses for money.
There were buckets for grass clippings so I could mow other people's grass for money.
There were buckets for water to wash the dishes when we were camping.
There were buckets to bail the sailing dinghy after a capsize.
There were buckets for the fish and crabs we caught to eat or sell to neighbours.
There were buckets for chicken feathers after we killed and plucked them.
there were buckets for when I was sick and could not get out of bed.

I guess when my father dies I will inherit those buckets, so they will help to support another generation of our family.

Until then I bought my son his first red bucket to build sand castles and carry water, and I hope he learns the importance of hard work and buckets like I did.

Curse this thread!!!!! Everywhere I turn now are buckets. Beautiful buckets in all directions. Now I can't help but wonder whether a bucket can have culture and ethnicity.......

The Japanese bucket for instance........ A cedar bucket. Aromatic cedar with ornamental etchings and a hand rubbed oil finish. It has shapely sides and a beautiful hand carved ladle to accompany it. A bucket solely for bathing..........

Re: Do You Remember Your First Bucket?

Seriously, go to a feed store or even Tractor Supply and pick up one of those black rubber buckets--best boat buckets ever! Nearly indestructible, soft on deck and doesn't slide, sinks when you toss one over the side upside down to get sluice water, and doesn't show grime. I finally retired one from the boat that is about 20 years old because the handle is getting weak, but I now have it in the back yard at home for really dirty, mucky projects.

Also leaves black rubber marks on white paint and smells bad after a while.

Apparently buckets are a huge part of our culture.....

In my experience a 20 year old handle is just coming into it's prime. Maybe the weak handle could use a little shoring up?
