    A blast from the past. My father worked construction, and when I went to the job sites with him, you'd see a few of those around (mostly the yellow plastic Covey ones with red lids at that time.)
    I think he may have even had one around here in one of his sheds for a while, I can't remember for sure anymore.

    Isn't it so cool to see something this simple again in life? Dang, I think back now and so much in my youth is gone.... we cannot forget!

    Yes, indeed. I'm not terribly old (45,) but hardly a day goes by that I don't miss the simplicity of life back when I was younger.
    Plenty enough troubles, too (just like most everyone,) but simpler.

    In my high school days , the State used to hire juniors and seniors to plant trees on reclaimed strip mine sites . The boss from the State carried four coolers like those in the bed of his pick up . Cold as ice and tasted great.

    I saved several of those and had them in a storage container by our shop. The wife found them and made flower pots out of 3 of them. I bit my tongue and said "they look awesome honey"

    I remember seeing those on the highway maintenance trucks back home in Indiana. The only nearly similar thing I got to use regularly were these.
