Kays Branch News

  • Kay's Branch News: Let’s dance

    We’re in the Big Dance! And I’ve made it through another weekend without having a heart attack. In case you haven’t heard, UK beat North Carolina Sunday evening. Just one more weekend to suffer through and I can concentrate on golf and yard mowing.
    It didn’t look much like yard-mowing weather Sunday morning — 32 degrees and a covering of snow on the porch and yard when I got up. Welcome to spring in Kentucky.

  • Family with Owen ties safe from crisis in Japan

    Well, I made it through another basketball-filled weekend. In case someone out there was in a cave someplace and hasn’t heard, the University of Kentucky beat West Virginia. So we march on to next weekend. This time we will face Ohio State. I am filling my head with mundane things so I won’t dwell on it.
    Gardening is something to think about. I have seen several plots that have been plowed.

  • Spring is starting to show itself

  • Children are for the young

    It was a nice weekend. UK won, the rain stopped before the creek got too far out of its banks and into the church basement, and Rachel and Chris came down for supper Sunday evening and brought the great-grandchildren. They went home just before both Sandy and I had a nervous breakdown. They are beautiful, adorable and loud. They’re 2 and 4. What can one expect?
    Rachel is expecting her third at the end of this month. Small children and babies are definitely for the young.

  • Dog saves hunter the trouble

    I got my “project” started this week. I decided to build a narrow cabinet in the back hall to store dog food, soft drinks, assorted laundry and cleaning products and miscellaneous items and have a folding surface on top for clothes from the dryer.

  • Going around Robin Hood’s barn

    What a beautiful weekend. Saturday was very nice, but Sunday was spectacular. It went up to 58 degrees on my thermometer.
    Pat, Ann and I went to Louisville to another play. Somebody in the ticket office really messed up this year. We had no play in January, which was no real hardship, considering the weather. But we had two plays scheduled on consecutive Saturdays in February. It was a good drama and very well done, but I’m just about all cultured out at the moment.

  • Movie theater is back in grand style

  • Sisters always shared zest for living

    I finally got off the Branch last week. My van hadn’t left the garage since a week ago Thursday. Luckily, I had gone to the library Tuesday, the 18th, to stock up on books and gone to Walmart on Thursday to get dog food and milk. After that, the cold and snow moved in and I stayed in.

  • The social scene could be looking up

    It was -9 on my thermometer Saturday morning. I kid you not. I live in a valley and it’s always colder here than anyplace else.
    We called off church Saturday. Joel called to see if I wanted him to go to Monterey to clear the ice off the sidewalk of the church. I wouldn’t have wished my worse enemy out on Saturday morning.
    We talked a while and compared the sick and decided that it wouldn’t be worthwhile to heat the church for four or five people. I called around and got the news.

  • Horse in the road isn’t much of an obstacle

    I got out Jan. 10 and stocked up on dog food and supplies and was in the house till Friday. I was beginning to feel like a house plant. I finished my last book on Thursday, so I was desperate to get to the library. This week looks much better, but just in case, I stocked up on books.
