On Sunday, the 16th of March, we had a great family happening up at Blueblood. It seems a small mob of Cassell kids were in need of Christening. Having the appropriate garb close at hand, Eunice and I trekked up the coast for the festivities.
Here we have (right to left) Daniel Cassell, Godfather to Charlotte Kate Cassell, James Cassell, Godfather to Nina Sue Cassell, William John Cassell, Jaculin Cassell (mother of the children), Charlotte Kate Cassell, Ben Cassell (father of the children), Nina Sue Cassell, and Mary-Jane Cassell, Godmother to Nina Sue Cassell. I’m on the far left.
Here’s Eunice and Di Cassell during the Christening. Di is holding her granddaughter, Natasha. Eunice is reading a poem written by Vanessa and Steve Ballard, Godparents to Nina and Charlotte.
Here’s the some of the Cassell Clan with me after the Christening.
I couldn’t pass up this one of Grandpa Mike (Pa) and grandson William.
The usual mob of suspects were also present. Here’s Ken McArthur looking so fine as he shows off his magnificent Pig Torture Device. What a clever mechanic. It all depends on an old washing machine motor.
Master Porcine Chef Trevor Hattersley was up at 4:00 AM with Pascal Michon to get the pig feeling nice and toasty warm.
Our special guest, Porky, was so knackered by the time lunch came around that we decided to let him rest for a while with a good, cheap cigar and a beer. CHEERS!
Eunie and I want to thank Clan Cassell for the honour of participating in this wonderful family celebration of life.Tags: ben cassell, blueblood, charlotte kate cassell, christening, daniel cassell, di cassell, eunice messersmith, jaculin cassell, james cassell, Ken McArthur, mary-jane cassell, mike cassell, nina sue cassell, Pascal Michon, steve ballard, trevor hattersley, vanessa ballard, william john cassell
