A bucket on a String.

I was going back through my LJ archives to figure out when Fantastic Portfolios officially opened (dude, it was only/already a year ago! This month!) and I came across an older post about how happy I was to have a full-sized fridge. That was a HUGE step up from our little bitty dorm fridge. Which was a HUGE step up from the bucket on the string.

Yes, when we moved in here, we had no power, and no stairs, so our refrigerator was a 5 gallon bucket on a string in the basement. It was cool down there - cool enough for milk and veggies, if not meat for more than a day - and we'd raise and lower it to get whatever food we could fit in it.

We've come a LONG ways.
