Kays Branch News

  • Kay’s Branch News: Gardens start to produce along the Branch

    This past week had been the poster child for the Kentucky Bureau of Tourism. It’s been just about as good as it gets.
    John and I (mostly John) got the bridge to the garden lot repaired and back in working order. I got across the creek and got it mowed, then went over the main yard.
    Bro. Croft, owner of the “Dog House” came up from Whitley County and did some more work on his place and mowed.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Highway department makes a smooth ride

    After all the birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and graduations last month, I am out of news.
    I can’t believe June is over and we are going into the Fourth of July weekend. I have spent too much time in the basement. I have missed half the year. We got two nice rains this past week. I got all the yard and garden lot mowed before that happened so I have little to do this week.
     Tomorrow is bridge and I will come to Owenton to do errands and see Dr. Clements about a chipped tooth.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Community comes together to honor friend

    I went to David’s funeral on Tuesday last - June 10. The weather cooperated and they were able to have it in Joyce’s backyard. It was very appropriate because that was where the New-True Clan had gathered for many years on lazy Sunday afternoon’s to eat, play, relax and be with family.
    It is a beautiful setting on the creek with large trees to set under and acres of grass to play any game that meets your fancy.

  • Kay’s Branch News: This time of year its easy to make good memories

    It’s overcast, mild and the birds are having lengthy conversations with each other around the screened in porch. I have just turned off the TV and am in writing mode.
    All the pieces have fallen into place and the basement is finished.
    Teri came last Wednesday and helped me hang pictures and rearrange the back wall and do some more cleaning. That only left the cleaning of the tables and furniture down there which I could do alone.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Sunday lunch can be like old home week

    It was 38 degrees again this morning when I got up. I didn’t see any signs of frost but Fay said they had frost yesterday morning. She was out putting water on her green bean plants that were above ground to keep the frost from blighting them. As I was coming home from Frankfort on Friday, I saw plowed ground for the first time this season. It’s nearly the first of June and I haven’t seen a tobacco plant in the ground. Its been a very strange spring.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Hopefully, I won’t need to buy a goat

    Last week was a busy one for everybody on the Branch.
    I had bridge on Tuesday.
    Teri came on Wednesday with her laundry and Catlin in tow. As her laundry washed, she helped me with the basement. She got a long stretch of tile cleaned and we were able to start setting furniture back in place. I cleaned a window and got the curtains hung.
    It’s beginning to look like someone actually lives there again.
    Jennifer returned to Kentucky on Saturday. She had been in San Diego, California for a week at a work seminar.

  • Kay’s Branch News: It’s time to drop a line around here

    Sorry about last week folks. I’d been working in the basement all that week and was trying to finish on Saturday. I painted the basement wall and then went out and mowed the big yard.
    I woke up on Sunday with a very stiff neck. I did manage to get to church and back but just sat all day with my eyes facing forward and taking pain pills all day.
    It was no better on Monday morning and all the pain meds made me feel “blah.”
    My brain just wasn’t working so I emailed Molly and said “no column this week.”

  • Kay’s Branch News: Beautiful weather highlights special holiday

    In case somebody out there slept through it, this past Easter weekend was beautiful.
    It neither rained nor snowed on our parade. All the local churches were full. Old Cedar had a beautiful morning for their sunrise service on the hill behind the church.
    There were Easter egg hunts and family dinners, the New–True Clan gathered at Barbara’s for dinner, Fay and Bruce went to her brother Gary’s in Scott County after church to spend some time with the family. I’m sure there were children to hunt Easter eggs at all these gatherings.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Branch slowly welcomes spring

    The weekend was beautiful. Everybody on the Branch was outside doing clean up work on their yards. I got the front bed under the kitchen window raked and cut out the dead vines. It looks so much better.
    Fay was out cleaning her beds to get ready for new plantings and Wanda and Ray went to Joyce’s to trim her pampas grass.

  • Kay's Branch News: Not much news as UK games dominate the conversations

    It’s raining, again. We’ve had about three and a half inches over the past several days.
    The sun finally came out late Saturday afternoon and it was nice on Sunday afternoon but the rain has come back.
    I suddenly realized as the sun shone on my back yard that the forsythia hadn’t bloomed. There are tiny leaves appearing but no buds. Not a single bush in my large yard has bloomed.
