Description

This tale opens with a flashback to the characters in their youth; their formative years, playing as normal and not so normal children played in the 1970's. The beginning gives insight as to how and why these miscreant children grow up to be like a lot of people in this world, messed up. Hell, we probably all created some of the same mischief, (Hopefully none to their degree of adventure) as them. Most likely you know people like them. Probably befriended them and in a worst case scenario dated people like them. At young ages the Rangerguys are molding their lives and are dreaming of big things to come. Matt wants to be a rock star, Gary wants to blow things up and Roger, well, we can only guess what is going through his mind in his youth. The girls (the Buckettes) in the neighborhood are instantly enthralled with Matt even before puberty. Although enamored with a young Matt, they have dreams of becoming cheerleaders for Ohio State, hence their name, The Buckettes. Because Matt and the Rangerguys, and Buckettes are the popular kids in the neighborhood jealousy arises from the kids (Carl Wad and Jaclyn Mehoff) in another part of the neighborhood. When a seemingly innocent prank by the Rangerguys causes injury to Jaclyn legs she vows to avenge her misfortune by dedicating her life to wreaking havoc on the Rangerguys and Buckettes. She employs Carl Wad in her schemes along with many of her and his relatives as needed. As we fast forward to their lives into their twenties / thirties the Rangerguys and Buckettes have not fulfilled their dreams and are semi successful, at best, but their adult antics are sensational and unrivaled. Two of the Rangerguys, Gary and Matt are starting another day as they normally do, another day of wandering aimlessly through life in search of the next party or adventure while the Jaclyn and Carl Wad, their arch enemies from their youth are about to start planning the demise of them. As Roger is introduced, it's plain to see that he's been under the influence of drugs and alcohol to the extent of only having a few essential brain cells functioning properly. The Buckettes are drawn to the Rangerguys like bystanders watching a tragedy. The Rangerguys just seem to have that kind of grip on them. Their relationship is very much love-hate throughout the tale. Just as the Rangerguys have their eccentric idiosyncrasies, so do the Buckettes. Terri Beth is a damsel in distress that needs rescued quite often. Maryl has a past that makes he extremely camera shy. Fergie has carried the women's liberation movement into the new millennium with an unfeigned tenacity. The Rangerguys are a rock and roll band and the Buckettes decide to join them as back up singers. Although only three Buckettes start, more are added as they travel throughout the country. This saga is politically incorrect, morally inept, and just plain wrong on so many levels. But so are the Rangerguys, Buckettes and their rival HASP group. Basically, any fault by any character in this story has been satirically magnified to the "unth" degree and any of them that don't see the world as the Rangerguys do fall victim to their shenanigans. Seeing life through their adventures is funny as hell. It's unconventional as the tale ends and the sequel is starts anew. Then the saga ends with another opportunity for a sequel, making it a sequel of sequel.show more
