RANDY'S PARTY 11-29-14
Randy Steele of
Casons Old Field, NC had his annual Christmas party with family and friends
on 11-29-14 commencing at 6:00 P.M. Randy had recently renovated his
home with an entire new kitchen, bathroom and carport with many more
upgrades including a flat screen TV in the carport with rocking chairs and a
swing......talk about relaxing, it just doesn't get any better than that.
My bride and I were invited and brought along the 35MM DSLR camera and
there were many folks already present since my bride and myself were not too
early. Below pix of Randy working out on the Holland gas fired grill:
Randy grinning through the grill smoke:
The grilled chicken was excellent and fall off the bone good; moist and
succulent. The menu consisted of grilled chicken, pulled pork, beans,
potato salad, mashed potatoes, slaw, hash brown casserole, rolls and various
desserts, soft drinks and coffee.
It didn't take long before around twenty-five (25) were present and after
a prayer was given, everyone started filling their plates and everything got
quiet for a while with everyone enjoying those "beautimous" home prepared
Joan Smith was the hostess and she kept everything running very smoothly,
although it was very difficult to get her still for a photograph but I
sneaked several in and did get some immediate feedback from her......grin if
you must! Below a few pix of her:
There were several DOC personnel present that I still remember from the
Minimum Security Anson Correctional Center there in Polkton, NC and things
has really changed since those days back in the 1980s, etc.
Below are pixs taken in Randy's trophy room and I do believe that Santa
Clause is going to be short a few of his reindeer this year by the looks of
things, although I did not see one with a Red Nose, therefore Rudolph
apparently escaped from Randy's hunting areas to make it back to the North
Pole in time to pull Santa's sleigh for the annual Christmas eve
I didn't take a complete set of pictures of all the mounts but this will
give you the idea that Randy is a serious trophy hunter, whereas I harvest
those little small "milk mouth deer"
more akin to a Jack Rabbit than these bruisers.....another grin is in order.
Those little deer sure do look good on a plate
with some gravy, biscuits and mash potatoes.
Below pixs taken of the guests present and hope I didn't miss anyone but
when the serving line got underway, it was time to put the camera down and
enjoy those excellent "groceries" aka vittles:
After the meal, several of us gathered outside around a fire barrel that
Randy had going and it definitely helped to get a little heat into the
Randy took the opportunity to burn some documents not needed instead of
shredding them and the color of the flames from a few of the envelopes were
a bright blue to a purple color, of which I accused him of
accidentally incinerating his Viagra. You know several of us about
burst a gut in laughter and Randy cracked a very big grin too! Below a
Before leaving, Calvin Lambert took me next door to show me one of his
trophies called a Jackalope:
Looks like a Jack Rabbit and an Antelope got crossed up there for
sure....another grin is in order.
In closing, the food was outstanding and enjoyed the fellowship and
friendship of others and Randy knows how to have an excellent party.
As always, I give thanks to God through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior for
his many blessings and the opportunity to live in a Country that allows such
A very special thank you to Randy Steele for the invitation and to his
hostess Joan Smith for keeping everything running smoothly and the desserts
Merry Christmas to all and look forward to a Happy New Year and pray that
God will bless each and everyone of us with his grace and mercy, allowing
health and prosperity to abound and that his will be accomplished in our
