  • Kay's Branch News, Dec. 3, 2014: Lots to be thankful for on the Branch this season

    I seem to always start with corrections. This week is no different. Joel’s trip to Italy wasn’t delayed by bad weather in the states, it was held up in Italy because the plane they were to fly home in had a missing part in the tail section of the plane.

  • Kay's Branch News: Bridge club celebrates member's 90th birthday

    It’s 29 degrees on the Branch this morning, but the weatherman says we’ll have a couple more days of pleasant weather before the bottom drops out of the thermometer.

  • Kay’s Branch News: A column fan checks in on Kay’s Branch

    This has been a slow week. I needed one after the departure of my cousins. They arrived back in Missouri safely. I have spent the week changing beds and doing laundry, and sitting in my chair in the sunroom with Dobbs. We were both exhausted.
    I did get to Frankfort on Wednesday to empty the recyclables. My soft drink can was overflowing. Friday was Hand and Foot day. We played at Barbara Hecker’s house this month. That was a lot of fun. I am back into my routine this week.

  • Long walks good for owner and injured dog

    In Kentucky, the weather always comes first.
    It was 22 degrees Saturday morning, 26 on Sunday and 24 on Monday.
    Everywhere else was registering in the low 30s on the TV map. I think my thermometer is just old and gets colder than most, but it works for me.

  • The Branch bears brunt of recent winter weather

    The big news and almost the only news on the Branch this week is the snow and cold, for once the “talking heads” got it right.

    They said there would be a blizzard of gigantic proportions and they were right. John played “fruit basket turnover” with all the vehicles so he could clean out his garage to put the tractor in it so when the snow did arrive he could dig himself out and get to Ann and me.

    We had the ability to get out, we just didn’t want to. The high Sunday morning was 11 degrees. At one point it read 7 degrees.

  • Stage is set for Christmas on Kay's Branch

    BY BEE SPICER

    Christmas week! The house is decorated, the shopping done, the tree in place and the gifts wrapped and under the tree. The menu is set for the Christmas afternoon brunch. This is the shortest day of the year. 

    I guess you all know I write on Monday so Molly can get it into the paper and ready to be distributed on Wednesday, so this is the shortest day of the year. 

  • Childhood friend opened up a whole new world

    It’s rainy and gloomy this morning as I write,  but we have had lovely weather this past week.

    Ann and I took Jessie to Louisville on Thursday for her checkup with her surgeon. He X-rayed the leg and pronounced her fit and ready to be released back into the “wild,” so to speak.

    Her bedding and food is back in the garage and she is off the leash and out of the basement.

  • Thanksgiving a success on the Branch

    Thanksgiving was a huge success on the Branch.
    The sun was shining, the air was crisp but not cold and all the guests arrived and enjoyed the feast. John hosted our celebration this year. Both of Charity’s children, in-law Chad and baby Liam, my daughters Ann and Teri and her husband Ray, were in attendance. It was truly a family gathering. The food was good and plentiful. The turkey was done and moist and everyone had brought their appetites.

  • So much to do and so little time to do it in

    I’ve been having computer problems, so what else is new?
    Wanda’s news wasn’t on my computer when I got up last week. I waited as long as I could and wrote the column with what she told me on the phone on Sunday evening. At 10:30 a.m., I checked the computer for emails and there was Wanda’s news.

  • Kay's Branch News, Aug. 26, 2015

    No matter what the calendar tells you, summer is over.
    The weather has cooled, it’s supposed to be into the 40s this week.
    The Halls have gotten their lot cleaned and a bump-out trailer to live in now and are ready to rebuild.
    Ray and Wanda came in Saturday and made a survey of all the piddling jobs I need before cold weather, and Fay and Bruce are getting ready to start cutting their fall hay.
    Ann has one more week of work and she will be retired. Everybody is looking forward to fall and the activities that go with it.
