Bucket list challenge - you'll like this one!

A CONNECTION OF mine, Valmnz has posted a 'bucket list' challenge ( ) and several others have responded with their 'bucket list'. In case you don't know what a 'bucket list' is it's a list of things to do or places to visit before you kick the bucket - or in other words die!

Well, my bucket list is sooo long that it would take a whole series of posts to detail everything on it and everyone would be bored rigid by the time episode 934 was finally published!

So I had a think to myself and then I remembered something I had written on another site (guess which one).

My account there is long gone but after a search of various files on my computer I found a draft version of it! (and don't worry, I've checked and it's no longer to be found anywhere).

So here is my alternative bucket list - a list of the buckets I have owned or have found useful in my life (so far)!

1. My waste paper bucket: contains all my mistakes and not-quite-good-enough for anywhere scribblings;

2. My tool bucket: used to carry my electric drill and its accessories - very handy when a full tool box isn’t required;

3. My garden bucket: useful for collecting weeds and odd items of rubbish the wind has blown into my garden;

4. My water bucket: I use this when I am changing the water in my tropical fish tanks;

5. My flower bucket: In my garden is an old galvanised bucket with a few daffodils in it. They are due to come up any time now to brighten up the place;

6. My car washing bucket: On the odd occasion I actually wash my car myself this one is invaluable;

7. My decorating bucket: carries my paint brushes and cleaning rags when I feel the need to freshen up some paintwork;

8. My bucket seat: I sit in this when I am in my garage hiding away from the chores i should be doing;

9. My neighbour’s bucket: it is surprising how often my neighbour across the street asks for a loan of a bucket;

10. My bucket of chicken nuggets from KFC: delicious!

And the bucket I would most like to have is: A bucket of bright ideas i could dip into anytime I'm stuck for something to write about!

INTERESTING FACT: Did you know that more Americans watched the Elvis Presley concert 'Aloha From Hawaii' than watched the first moon landing?

And what a disappointment "Aloha Hawaii" I love your bucket list and have to admit you have far more buckets than I do. Maybe that's the missing element in my life. : )

I don't think I own a bucket, but will work on the challenge.

My list 'pails' in comparison...I think I've done everything I've always wanted to do in life...either that, or I'm becoming lazier...

My goodness, that has to be the best bucket list I've ever seen. Well done. Our household is rather short of buckets at the moment, maybe I should pop across and borrow one

You have a bunch of buckets from which to choose. Your bucket list really makes you one prepared person!

Don't mix them up and eat chicken from the paint bucket etc

Kasman wrote on February 24, 2015, 3:57 PM

Why thank you ma'am! I didn't realise I rated so highly in your esteem (read your comment again - LOL emoticon :smile: )

valmnz wrote on February 24, 2015, 4:25 PM

Kasman lol, I was tempted to leave it there, but I haven't - I've changed it!

I love Elvis trivia. As for a bucket list, I already know I'm never going to Paris, France.

That is a great list of buckets, I have a lot of those also but you do not have a feed bucket for horses lol

That's a lot of buckets, I think we only have one :)

And where do you store all those buckets - Each with a different colour I suppose emoticon :smile:

cheri wrote on February 28, 2015, 4:20 AM

I have to think about that too, I remember I made one but I have forgotten all about it. I guess its time to take it seriously.

Kasman wrote on March 1, 2015, 9:36 AM

I keep them in a bucket of course - where else?

How can your 'project bucket' be complete without your singing this song: The title is 'There's a hole in the bucket'

Kasman wrote on March 1, 2015, 10:54 AM

There are many versions of that song available online - including the one I gave in this post.

bestwriter wrote on March 1, 2015, 6:43 PM

I did not notice it. So you already know the song. Good.

LOL that is a great bucket list you have there.
