Kays Branch News

  • 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.

  • Kay’s Branch New: I hope the walnuts are wrong

    Ahhhh! I’m late.
    I am suffering from company-lag this morning. My cousins from Missouri and Savoy, Illinois came last Monday evening and left this morning at 7 a.m.
    I was up at 5:45 a.m. to cook breakfast and help them find their stuff, finish packing and load their van.
    Dobbs and I went to the sunroom to sit down and listen to the quiet and went back to sleep. I finally stirred myself and came to the kitchen and start a load of towels and wash the dishes, when it suddenly dawned on me – This is Monday and I should have the column in by now.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Hope for the best but plan for the worst

    This column will probably not make any sense.
    I was hoping to get through early before Ray and Wanda got here but that just didn’t happen.  I hired them earlier in the month to come and strip the paper off the stairwell and paint it. They got here at 8:15 a.m. I can’t keep myself from jumping up every few minutes and trying to help. My computer sits in the kitchen about 20 feet from the stairs going to the basement.

  • The Chrysler Building of sheds almost done

    Good morning from the Branch, and it’s a very chilly morning here.
    I had to roll out of bed early and I was not ready to leave the warmth of my bed. It really feels like fall.
    I am up before the sun because I made the mistake last spring of making an appointment with Dr. Clements to have my yearly check up on Monday.
    Yes, I still have teeth thanks to Freddie.
    I’ve had my coffee and here I am at the computer before the sun is up typing away.

  • Kay’s Branch News: After a cool week, summer finally comes to the Branch

    Good morning from the Branch. It’s pleasantly cool at the moment  and the sun is shining. Summer has finally arrived.
    We had a horrendous storm on both Friday and Saturday nights, thunder and lightning like I have never seen before.
    Wanda said  it damaged several things at Pat New’s and “got” Barbara’s TV.
    The storm on Saturday night on the Branch didn’t destroy anything but played havoc with all our “programmed appliances.”

  • Kay’s Branch News: Close the books on another 127

  • Kay’s Branch News: Cool weather but still a busy week down here

    Good morning. Welcome to August.
    It was 57 degrees when I got up. We had more rain, about two tenths of an inch over the weekend.
    Fay said they had moved their cattle to new pasture. There had been enough rain this summer to keep all their pastures fresh, unlike last year when they had to start feeding hay by the end of August.
