Kays Branch News

  • Kay’s Branch News: Sorry guys. I don't speak geek

    After two weeks of dry weather, the rains started a week ago Sunday afternoon and didn’t stop till the following Thursday. It felt more like November than September.

  • Kay’s Branch News: A slow week on The Branch

    Didn’t really have much to write about this week. It was kind of a lost weekend. Wanda didn’t send any news and my life was nothing to write home about either.
    Bruce and Fay did get the hay, such as it was, cut and rolled.
    The barn martins left about the 30th but I had several things that week and didn’t mention it.
    The humming birds have just about gone, too. Labor Day weekend is over and so is UK’s less-than-stellar football game. The less said about that the better.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Neighbors help neighbors

    This has been a great week, weather-wise. We had a fine day for golf Wednesday. It would have been good weather to mow, but with the prediction of no rain for at least eight days, I decided to hold off on the mowing. I only did the yard around the old house and that looked like a hay field when I got done.

  • Kay's Branch News: Rain makes for some happy campers along The Branch

    We finally got some measurable rain this week. It’s been clouding up and thundering and lightning, but nothing would happen. On Friday night, it went through the same routine but the sky opened up and it rained for about 40 minutes. There was almost an inch of rain in the gauge Saturday morning. I had mowed Thursday morning in bits and pieces because there were so many brown spots under the trees. Saturday morning, everything was green again.

  • Kay's Branch News: Community will come together, clean up Monterey

  • Kay’s Branch News: Thank goodness for Geek Squad

    The 127 yard sale has come and gone for another year. From the number of signs and set-ups along the road, it must have been a success.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Choosing golf, yard sales or AC

    I was pleasantly surprised to find my neighbor and friend John Harrod featured in the “Kentucky Living” magazine this month. It was a very nice article.
    My only negative comment was that they said he lived in Owenton, and he doesn’t even live close to Owenton. He lives on Kay’s Branch just across from my John’s house and has lived there for years. The only connection he has with Owenton is the rural mail carrier that drops off his mail.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Summer starts with car troubles

    Summer arrived last week and I am still waiting for Spring.
    It was 67 degrees when I got home from church Sunday morning. I changed into sweats and socks and curled up with a book all afternoon.

  • Kay’s Branch News: A fun-filled weekend across the county

    Sunday was my 62nd wedding anniversary and Mike Raisor’s birthday. He was getting himself born while I was getting married.
    We had another one inch or so of rain this weekend. Bruce and Fay had just gotten started cutting when some of their equipment broke down and set them back a couple of days, then the rain started again. She did say they got their garden plowed and it was looking good.

  • Kay's Branch News: No bragging from Expo tournament

    After 12 days of cloudless skies, we had about decided we’d prayed ourselves into a drought, but the rains did come back and we had about six-tenths of an inch last week. The dry spell gave the farmers a chance to reharrow their tobacco ground and get the plants in the ground. This is about as late as I’ve seen tobacco and corn planted. Oh, there was always the straggler who didn’t get his plants in the ground till the first part of June but that was the exception. The dry spell enabled John to get the rotten posts torn out of his screened-in porch and get it put back together.
