Yesterday afternoon I picked up my friend Jennifer Murphy from The Kitchen Company,  

where she works, and we headed out to Applegate Valley Ranch for the last BBQ of the season. Joining us were Bill Jeannie Patterson, Dale Dee Yellin, Tom Kathy Corso, Paul Tammy Allgood, Brian Jen Tucker Sami Pendleton, Jean Schumacher, and neighbors of Dale Dee, Michael & Edith. Barbecued chicken and beef, watermelon salad, beans, garlic bread, chocolate cake! YUMMMM!  Photos on the Smilebox... and, apparently my Sami likes frogs as much as I do. Everytime we've been at Applegate Ranch, she catches one!
