Kays Branch News

  • If Heaven has a golf course: Remembering an old friend

    Sorry I didn’t write the column last week. I was very “down” over the death of Frank McDonald and just couldn’t think of anything to say.
    Everybody else was thinking about cutting hay. Should I or shouldn’t I. Most got faked out about the extended forecast and decided not and it would have been a great week for haying. You win some; you lose some. That’s farming.

  • What more could a mother want?

    The weather is finally starting to look like spring. Saturday was a beautiful day for mowing, pulling weeds and sprucing up the outdoors. John brought Liam down to play in my yard with Jessie and to play in the creek. There is very little water in the creek at the moment, only puddles here and there but just right for a 2 year old to manage.

  • Derby Day Hospice event another success

    Derby Day and graduation was the big news this past weekend. UK had their graduation ceremonies.

  • The search for morel mushrooms continues

    Rain, rain, rain — that’s about it for the news from the Branch this week. I did manage to get all of the yard mowed before the deluge started. The bad storm Thursday night scared Dobbs to death. I could have slept through it, but she kept digging her way further and further under the covers and kept me awake till it subsided about 4 a.m. I thought we must have had 3 inches of rain, but Fay assured me that it was only a little over an inch and a half. She has been trying to get her flowers planted between showers.

  • Beware of bargains that sound too good

    I have had to get out the winter clothes and put them back up this weekend. The weather has turned on us again. Spring in February and winter in April; I should have known not to change out my closets before June.

  • Nice weather brings out the fishermen on the branch
  • Monterey native now a computer ‘genius’

    March must be the longest month of the year. It seems like it has gone on for forever, and it didn’t end well. UK got beat Sunday, so basketball is over for me until next November. Ann has discovered basketball this season, but unlike me, she likes to watch all the games. She will continue with the tournament till the very end. I, on the other hand, will now devote my weekends to golf.

  • Class of ‘48 searching for classmates

    Welcome to Spring. I know it’s spring because The Talking Head on TV said so this morning. I went down and built up the fire in the wood stove in the basement anyway. I’ll let it go out by noon, but when the basement is warm, it makes the rest of the house easier to heat. Hopefully, this well is the last fire of the season.

  • Branch may have a new industry

    I’ll start this morning with the news that didn’t make it last week. Wanda was staying with her mother and forgot her iPhone, so she had to call and dictate her information over the phone. I had already sent my news to Molly when she called again and added information. I must say that without Wanda covering the area, there wouldn’t be a Kay’s Branch News.
    My family and I are mostly “stay at homes” these days. We go to Frankfort to shop, and I play cards a couple of times a month, but that is it.

  • UK basketball is life...for now

    First, I wish to apologize for the terrible grammar in one of my sentences last week. The computer has “spell check, ” but it knows nothing about grammar. I have got to start reading what I write before I send it to Molly. Miss Martha Holbrook and Miss Lena Watson are turning in their graves. The few who went to grade school and high school will know what I mean. Anyone who went through grade school and high school and had them for teachers had proper grammar pounded into their souls.
