RANDY STEELE'S PARTY WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Randy Steele of Cason's Old Field, Anson County, North Carolina brought the
Christmas season in early with an evening party held on November 30, 2013
and yours truly and my bride were invited. I dug the ole trusty
Canon 30D camera out and charged an extra battery and we headed to Randy's
home around 5:20ish PM and the party was already underway when we arrived.
There were a few folks gathered around a barrel in the back yard with a good
fire going and it reminded me back to our camping days in the late 1970s on
Blewett Falls Lake, Pee Dee River, Anson County, North Carolina. A few
pixs below of the outdoor activity:
The fire barrel was giving off some wonderful heat with an occasional
upward shower of glowing embers that would light up the night sky briefly like a
small swarm of fire flies aka Lightening Bugs!

It was good to see Jason Steele, Randy Steele's youngest son of which I had not
seen in a few years and he was the proud father of a new baby boy.
After taking the outdoor pixs, it was time to get back inside and check
on the food prepared which was Boston Butt, Grilled Chicken, Ribs, Mashed
Potatoes, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw, Macaroni n Cheese, Cake, Pie, etc.; pixs
Randy did his stuff with the Boston Butt on the grill; it would melt in
your mouth and he had an excellent home made BBQ sauce to go with it.
Everything was fantastic and I did my share of "grazing" once I put the
camera down and went back for seconds on the Boston Butt. Below pixs
of those enjoying those "beautimous" vittles and there were many
folks out of camera range:
I found out that Randy has a knack for doing some Christmas tree
decorating and other decor but believe that Joan Smith had a big hand in the
decorating. Below pixs of the decor and also do believe that I
saw a few of Santa's Reindeer on the wall with red bows attached to them and
hope Santa has some replacements for them on December 24, 2013 for his
midnight Christmas Eve deliveries............ grin if you must!
Randy and Joan were gracious hosts and everyone had a fantastic time and
if anyone left hungry, it was their own fault. The food, friendship
and fellowship were outstanding and as I express at every opportunity both
written and verbally;
"Two of the Greatest Ships that ever Sailed,
Friendship and Fellowship" and this evening was certainly no
A special Thank You to Randy
Steele for the invitation of which my bride and I thoroughly enjoyed
everything! Family and Friends make the Holidays especially enjoyable!
Merry Christmas to all and
"Christ is the Reason for the Season."
It is my hope and prayer that
God richly bless each and everyone of you daily and during our annual
Christmas season, whereas next year brings you happiness, good health,
prosperity, faith and that our Country will wake up and see what is happening to her and
hopefully, once again, America become the Greatest Nation of this Earth! Amen.
