Kays Branch News

  • 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.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Cat fans suffer and rejoice

    Remember I told you I lost the last paragraph of Wanda’s news last week? Well, it popped up when I opened the computer on Tuesday morning. I don’t know where it went, nor how it came back but here it is.
    Wanda went to the wedding of Jessie and Doug Luscher’s daughter Sandi. They were old friends of Wanda and Danny’s when they went to Camp Pleasant Church years ago.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Season to stay glued to TV

    This has been a very disjointed morning.
    I received Wanda’s news she had sent last night. I called Fay and talked to her and was getting ready to copy off Wanda’s email when she called to ask if I had received it.
    We talked a while and I went to the sun room to get a note I had made about a lady who had called in mid-week. I talked to Wanda and looked but the scrap of paper I had put Rosemary “Hawkins” Gaines’ name on was missing.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Sun and warmth brings some life back to Branch

    I must first begin with a clarification in last week’s column. I sent it in and then remembered I had skipped a paragraph of Wanda’s news. I sent Molly an email asking her to insert said paragraph, proceeded to type it as Wanda had sent it using “I” instead of Wanda’s name. I haven’t been in Georgetown in 10 years.
