Kays Branch News

  • Kay's Branch News | Golf tournament tops weather this week

    Snow! We have another skiff of snow on the ground as I write this Monday morning. This is April; the trees are blooming, Keeneland is running. This is not snow time, but this is Kentucky. Anything can happen weather-wise. The ground was just drying up enough for some of us to get out and mow the yard. Ray got his done, and Fay said she mowed too, but the wind was too cold for me, and I have had skiffs of snow every morning, so I continue to sit and watch TV and hope it will be better tomorrow.

  • Kay's Branch News | Capital Plaza Tower implosion creates excitement locally

    This has been a good week for me. I got to play bridge Tuesday. The sun was shining, and I could see spring just around the corner — then it snowed on Wednesday and burst my bubble. There was a good crowd at church Sunday. The new furnace was doing its job, and everybody was glad to be back in their pews.
    Fay said attendance was good at her church too. She has been staying with her sister Sue some this week. She is bedfast now. Fay has been doing some cooking for her and helping the nurse that looks after her. Their family needs your prayers.

  • Branch wildlife not the only ones ready for winter's end

    I’m running late this morning. My brain is on overload. Too many and too much “sports” over the weekend. I came home from church and turned on the golf game and watched that to the end, then got into the Olympic games. The sun finally came out, and it was in the 50s at some point in the afternoon. I had a skiff of snow on the ground when I got up this morning. You never know what you’re going to get weather-wise when you live in Kentucky.

  • Branch residents plan home improvements, search for ‘sheds’

    More snow this morning. I am so ready for spring. I am starting to bark I’ve been in my house for so long. Dobbs is the only one I see. I did get to church yesterday, which was good. Being with other human beings for a couple of hours saved both my religion and my sanity.
    My children are as closed in as I. Ann lives down a long lane from the road and John lives up on a hill. But enough of my housebound whining. I am healthy, I haven’t been anyplace to catch the flu, and if I have lost my marbles talking to Dobbs, only she and I know about it.

  • Branch resident enjoys 2 week cruise to the Caribbean Islands

    I didn’t write last week because my number one correspondent was out of the country. I had and have been sitting in my TV room with Dobbs watching television and reading for a month it seems. I did get to the library and got groceries one day. As you can see, nothing to write home about, but Wanda is back from her two-week cruise of the Caribbean with all kinds of exciting things to tell.

  • Ice skating once big fun for one Branch resident, today ‘good sense’ prevails
  • Frigid cold brings Branch to a standstill

    I am completely out of sync this morning. Between Christmas, New Years and the frigid weather I have completely lost track of time, days of the week and what I am supposed to be doing.

  • Busy holiday season for ‘Branchites’

    Thursday will be the shortest day of the year. Winter will officially be here. So far, I can’t complain about the weather. I’ve had frost, but my lower yard is still green. It goes well with the red decorations that are outside and in.

  • ‘Earth home’ aids furry friends too

    We had our first snow on the Branch this week. It was something of a shock after the long stretch of mild weather we have had all fall. It wasn’t much, just enough to make the roads slick. We canceled church because our preacher has to drive from Lexington and Sue has to now drive to Owenton, up the Gratz hill and back to Monterey to get to our church.

  • Thanksgiving dinner provided by Kroger relieves stress for ‘mother’

    I think everybody on the Branch had a great Thanksgiving. We went to John’s this year; just Ann, John, Charity and I. They had already put up their tree and decorated for Christmas. We had a delicious meal, compliments of Kroger. I had announced that “mother” was no longer cooking, so John stepped into the breach and said he would have it at his house. I didn’t know one could buy turkey already cooked and all the side dishes that go with it. You learn something new, even at my age.
