Kays Branch News

  • Kay's Branch News: Smith House getting even better under new ownership

    Last week started with crisp, cold but sunny days. The snow was still on the ground but the roads were clear, so I was a happy camper.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Holidays bring lots of news

    Happy New Year!
    I guess that’s still appropriate. Things go so fast now I should be mentioning Ground Hog Day.
    I hope your Christmas was as good as mine. Everyone was healthy and got to my house on Christmas morning and everyone meaning all my children and their spouses, my granddaughters and their husbands and the four great-grandchildren.

  • Dealing with the business of death

    I’m getting a slow start this morning. The coffee hasn’t quite reached the brain yet. Last week was a very busy one for me. It seemed like I was at the computer or on the phone most of the week. People to notify, questions to answer for Pat or Rita and finding others who had moved and should be notified. If you have never had to cope with the “business of death,” it’s daunting the first time you have to do it.
    Things did fall into place and Johnny Bob’s memorial service was really nice.

  • Retirement means more time for fun

    I think the drought is broken. I think we must have had 3 inches of rain since it started raining last week. None of us know because we take our rain gauges in the first of December to keep them from freezing and cracking. Not the case this year. Its been near 60 on the Branch all week and is still about 50 this morning. The Branch has been running high since Friday. I talked to Fay this morning and she said they had been checking their gap every day to make sure it hadn’t washed out. Otherwise they have been keeping close to the house.

  • Kay’s Branch News: It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

    I could get used to this weather. We needed the rain and the temperature is wonderful. I know it can’t last, but it feels good to my old bones.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Thanksgiving means family time down here

    It seems the year comes and goes faster every year. I have hardly put away the lawn mower and I’m changing the house from the beautiful fall colors to the red, green and gold of Christmas. Yes, I said Christmas, can you believe it’s less than a month away?

  • Kay’s Branch News: Time to welcome family and say goodbye to a friend

    Just a quick note to clear up some errors in last week’s column. I should reread it before I send it rather than reading it when the paper comes out. Gene Rose is Stony’s “cousin.”
    In the paper last week, that sentence bumped up against the line dividing the next item on the page and “cousin” got left out.

  • Kay’s Branch News: It’s a busy time before holidays come around

    The sun is shining this morning. After last week, that is news. I had to build a fire on Friday last. I don’t think I have ever had to start building fires this early. If that’s all I have to complain about I count myself very lucky.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Still plenty of play days left this season

    Good morning, though it’s wet and cloudy on the Branch this morning. I will be stuck at home. John brought the news on Friday that the road crew had moved its equipment in and would start paving our road Monday morning. The trucks have already gone up the road; though it’s hardly light out.
    I had a great week last week, busy every day, so I can afford to stay home one day to have our road blacktopped.

  • Kay’s Branch News: “And a wonderful time was had by all”

    I think there were many prayers lifted to Heaven Friday night, concerning weather. Saturday dawned cold but cleared and it was a beautiful fall day for the Monterey Homecoming Fair.
    I went down early to help set up the cemetery committee’s booth. Teresa Davis had already gotten the booth pretty much finished except for a couple of chairs and the easel to put the pictures on and the photos themselves. I had mounted them on cardboard so people could see them better.
