Abstract/Contents:Explains that "anyone who likes to work on things has a bucket of nuts, bolts and leftover parts. Those of us who really love to fix things consider this bucket our security blanket." Describes the author's first "nut bucket" that contained "ball bearings from my skateboard, lawn mower nuts, a few gears from a Model T transmission (that I broke while trying to build a mower that could fly), and some miscellaneous parts I took out of the kitchen drawer." Details an incident in which the author's wife "attempted to drag my magical old bucket out of the shop to put in a church garage sale...Obviously some people just don't get it." Suggests that the "nut bucket" may offer respect from others, stating that "the comment, 'Oh, nice bucket' from the farmers around my home makes me nod in acceptance of the unique understanding of a quality bucket of nuts." States that "I can look at a nut bucket and surmise age, range of experience and sanity." Explains that "when I pass on, I want to be buried with my bucket" because "I pray God is still trying to fix things, and just maybe, considering my bucket...He might find something worthy of heaven."
