Mensagem:  My father and I carried our lunches in similar metal boxes with handles. Inside each box was a thermos bottle for milk, coffee, etc. I called mine a "lunch box" and he called his a "dinner bucket". Apparently, in the "good old days" an actual bucket was used. Instead of "bucket", you still hear "pail". But a "pail" is a "bucket"! -- Dale
