Smokey got a new bucket and tool holder insert for it. This will be his carry-it-to-the-site toolbox.
The second time he tried to show it to me and explain all its finer points, I told him that, nice as it was, it had already received all the attention it deserved.
However, I do need to show you one more thing about the bucket.

Look what I discovered! These are going to be my new go-to lunches at work. <$4 each, often good for two meals.
Even better, look at the ingredients lists:
I could hardly believe it -- everything in that list is REAL FOOD! No multi-syllabiccally named chemicals nor preservatives nor *flavor enhancers*.
Of course, the real test is in the eating and the tasting, and these prepackaged meals passed those tests with flying colors. I cook up a pot of brown rice periodically and serve half of one of these over a small bowl of it. Yum. (Except for the ones with spinach. I like spinach, but not, apparently, in these. But there are plenty of different choices, so no problem, mon!)

A couple days ago I got a cortisone shot in the hip, so I am walking (largely) pain-free again.
Life is good.
