in the places of my life oil drums are/were a thing, eh; I've lifted many a full one into the truck to service equipment in the field.

old oil drums had other lives ... leave the lid on and add a hand pump and you carried diesel out to the pastures or the road works to fill tractors and trucks and dozers and water pumps and generators ...

un-crimp lid, take it off and they were used as garbage cans ...

cut just the bottom off and they were used to soak tractor parts in fuel to clean them or keep them from rusting up ... there always seemed to be a gear of a crank shaft soaking in the works yards and garages, waiting ... waiting ...

length ways, if you cut them, they were feed troughs for working horses and the sheep in their pen ...

the cows, the cows they ate grass; well, not the dairy ones, the dairy cows ate grass and they got feed and supplements in troughs when they came to the parlour morning and afternoon ...

cut in half and hinged they became barbeques on which you could cook up some pan chicken/jerk chicken ... memories of pan chicken are making my mouth water.

life ...
