Kays Branch News

  • Branch abuzz following Monterey fair

    Of all the mornings to sleep late, this was not the Monday I should have. I have more news than I know what to do with.
    The Monterey Fair was Saturday. Gene Rose’s Rose-Spicer reunion was Saturday, and the Mt. Vernon Soup was on Sunday. The Ryder Cup was being played on TV from Thursday to Sunday, and Arnold Palmer died Sept. 26, and it was dedicated to his memory.

  • Monterey gets spruced up for homecoming fair

    This week it’s all about The Monterey Fair. Its been in the planning stage for some time but the work really started this week, and I mean work.
    The first of last week Noel Thomas, Barbara, Ray and Wanda started the work of cleaning up the fence rows, edging the sidewalks, using a chain saw on some stuff, weed eating, blowing debris into piles to be shoveled into trucks, cleaning the bank building for the history display, etc.

  • Kay's Branch News | Sept. 21, 2016

    Last Monday as I was typing the column and getting ready for another week, John came and borrowed my van to take his family on an excursion. He, Charity, her daughter Jordan and husband Chad were taking the grandson, Liam, who is 19 months old, to the The Louisville Zoo.

  • A visit from a fan of Kay's Branch News | Aug. 31, 2016

    Aug. 23 was John’s birthday. Thank goodness for the new air conditioners.

  • Son's birthday warrants firing up the oven

    As I begin writing this morning, I’m sitting in long pants and a sweatshirt. The house is still open, and it will warm up as the day progresses, but there is a hint of fall in the air. The grass is still green and growing as I sit here, but fall is definitely on the way.
    Tuesday was John’s 51st birthday, and his only wish was the annual roast beef and veggies and all the trimmings, plus chocolate cupcakes, which meant I had the oven going on Monday and Tuesday, so I welcome the cooler weather.

  • A quiet Thanksgiving at home with The Duke

    The weather was beautiful and everybody on the Branch — well, everybody that I write about — had a great Thanksgiving.
    Jennifer got a friend at the hospital to trade off days with her so she could be home Thursday and Friday. All the Riddle family came to Fay’s for the celebration. She said there were 30 in attendance. She had decorated her finished basement in Thanksgiving colors, and the upstairs was already decorated for Christmas.

  • Back to the books for local students

    The 127 Yard Sale is over; the kids are back in school, and high school football will soon begin. The Olympic games have had everyone with a TV glued to their sets this week.

  • This column now written in air conditioning

    Most of the news this week involves the U.S. Hwy. 127 Yard Sale.

    Wanda, along with her mother, brothers and sister, were up to their elbows in it. Joyce loaned her big yard and lot to people to setup. Charles and Tess, with some help from Noel, cooked and served lunch to the visitors and Wanda, Ray and Barbara had wagon loads of “stuff” for sale.

  • The canning continues at the Branch

    It has been a long hot week. Wanda and Ray went to Bro. Ken Underwood’s funeral last Monday at Buck Run church. After leaving Monterey, he served at that church for 12 years. Karen and Butch Lawrence’s son Andrew, who is now a minister at The Point church in Frankfort, spoke at his grandfather’s service. Wanda said he did a great job. I know it must have been hard for him.
