Kays Branch News

  • Good news in abundance on Branch

    The weather man said March will finally leave us this week and we’ll get some spring weather. It’s about time. This is a bit much, even for Kentucky.

    I have had a fire all week. John brought over more wood, thinking this week was going to be cold too. My bones take more heat than the average person. He is finally over his cold and feeling much better.

  • Living in Ky. not for the faint of heart

    Most of the news? This morning it’s house, outbuilding and yard cleaning.

    Wanda said Barbara’s birthday was April 2, so she volunteered to help her clean out her garage/storage building as a birthday gift. It hadn’t been done since David passed away.

    Vanessa came and helped for a while too. She said they got a lot done. David had a lot of stuff, so they spent much of their time with, “What is this for?” and “What about this?”

  • A beautiful Easter weekend, complete with a wedding

    If you are reading this, take a chair. It was Easter Sunday weekend and there was a lot going on. This may turn into a novelette.

    To state the obvious, it was a beautiful day. Old Cedar had a beautiful morning for their sunrise service and breakfast afterward, cooked by the men of the church. Both Monterey Baptist and Christian churches were full. We haven’t had that many people in the pews for several years. There were plenty of Easter bags and eggs for the children to hunt.

  • A chilly start to the first day of spring

    Welcome to Spring. At least the first day was nice, but cold. I wore black to church on Sunday, in memory of the past Cats that made it out of the second round and that is the last mention of the basketball season’s passing.

    It was 23-degrees on the Branch Sunday night.

  • Soggy March means early crops will have to wait

    This has been another busy week for me. It seems like I have been in the van going somewhere all week.

    I was completely out of Jesse food and had to make a run to Frankfort on Tuesday to the library and Walmart. I was also running out of books to read. Wednesday I took my taxes to Long Ridge to have the nice lady there do something efficient with them and dropped in on Teri.

    I made a mistake about the birthday coming up last Saturday. I thought it was Allie’s but it was Catlen, who is the now 5 year old.

  • A week of transition from winter to spring

    This is a week of transition. Winter is ending, jobs that need doing inside are now being done in lieu of better weather to come and calving is about over.

    Daylight Saving is changing this coming weekend. Everybody will spring forward.

    Basketball is into the season ending tournaments and Downton Abbey has left the building. I have no idea what I will do with my Sunday nights in the future, but I guess I’ll think of something.

  • Another beautiful weekend on the Branch

    It was another beautiful weekend on the Branch.

    This was Jennifer True’s weekend to be at home. There was not grass to mow, nor garden to plant, no farm chores that needed doing, so as any sensible women would do, she, Fay and Nicole went shopping.

    The “end of winter” sales were in full swing so they took advantage of it. Fay didn’t say they actually bought anything, but that wasn’t the point. It was a great day for a ladies day out.

  • Friends of the branch take part in benefit

    The sun is shining and the first week of June has slipped by me while I wasn’t looking.

    Fay said they finally got some garden planted, as did Billy Ballenger. Tomatoes and corn will be a little late this year. The weatherman said no rain this week so they were headed for the hay field this morning, as are most of the farmers in this area.

  • Harrod's birthday remains a big surprise

    What an absolutely beautiful weekend.

    John Harrod finally had his birthday party. Because I got confused about the actual date of his birthday and put the “surprise party” in the paper a week too soon and blew the surprise, Tona postponed the party till this Saturday.

    John told me he had seen the column and saw a surprise party was planned, but he didn’t say anything about knowing about it and planned to be surprised when it was sprung on him.

  • Hawkins celebrates birthday with host of friends

    We have about two and a half inches of snow on the ground this morning, but the temperature is rising as I sit here and type.

    The boys at Joel’s cars are going to work as if nothing was on the roads. The weatherman said we would have rain by noon. I don’t plan to be out till tomorrow, so I hope things have settled down by then.

    This is my busy week. Bridge on Tuesday, hair cut on Thursday and Hand and Foot on Friday.

    The Monterey Fire Department is having a chili supper at 6 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 20, at the firehouse.
