Last March, I listened in horror as our neighbor told me that she saw Bernard pick up a five gallon bucket and start beating Ellsworth with it.

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of experiencing a Bernard bucket beating. Now I know how Ellsworth feels.

You see, Bernard is obsessed with buckets.

He loves picking them up.

And he’s a big fan of sharing.

What a sweet, thoughtful boy.

**B-O-N-K**   That was the sound of the bucket hitting me in the head.
