Kays Branch News

  • 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.

  • Kay’s Branch News: It's spring and time to dance

    I really enjoyed the warm days last week. I got the mowing finished and finally got to play golf.
    I know a lot of people got some gardening done. Ann and Tutt got their tomatoes planted, and Wanda helped Charlie a little in his garden. She said this was the latest he’d every gotten things in the ground.
    All the corn and tobacco fields that were plowed early will have to be rebroken. All the rain has melted the ground right back into solid earth again.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Derby gets the blood pumping

    Derby weekend was a whopping success. Oh, it rained on Wednesday and the boat race had to be postponed; or was that Tuesday? It rains so much lately I loose track, but Friday was a beautiful day for the Oaks; and though it was cloudy and cool most of Saturday, the small amount of rain that fell at mid-afternoon didn’t hurt the track or the crowd’s enthusiasm.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Life continues along the Branch

    I thought the top of the news tonight would be “Everybody on the Branch got out their mowers and got their yards mowed.” I turned on the 11 o’clock news to see David Gregory announcing that Osama Bin Laden is dead.
    After all this time and all the changes in our lifestyle in the U.S. the past 10 years, all the death and destruction that has been caused in his name, what happens now? Will another bogeyman arise to take his place? Will we just turn to Libya’s Gadaffi to be the new bogeyman to take his place? Who knows.
