BBQ Applegate Valley Ranch ~ Hug a Cow!

Good 47º sunny clear morning.
Yesterday was a change from Wednesday, temp wise. At least 10º hotter, we hit 84º, and who knows what today will bring.
I drove into Central Point for our JCRW luncheon/meeting. Our speaker was David Churchman, a professor emeritus California
State University where he chaired graduate programs
in behavioral sciences teaching conflict theory and negotiation and also taught Arab, Byzantine, and ancient Near Eastern history in the
humanities graduate program. He continues to teach on line in this program as well as on line for the History Department at SOU.
After lunch we had a meeting for the Reagan BBQ committees. Got home after 3pm. Left at 5, heading to the Applegate and to the Applegate Valley Ranch for Jen's birthday celebration and the Thursday night barbecue.....
Nice drive out there. 25 miles from me. Lost of cattle ranching out there... Beautiful countryside...BBQ was chicken and ribs, beans, salad, bread, drinks, and dessert. They had a beer/wine bar also. The kids ran around on the grass and had fun. A young man had an Akita puppy there... soooo cute! The entertainment was Jon & Sher. We sat there until 8:30! Very enjoyable. Thank you Jean, for treating all of us!!!  

The sunset was pretty on the drive home.... and then I got a glimpse of the full moon. OMG

Picture doesn't do it justice. It was HUGE and yellow! Beautiful.
