Kays Branch News

  • Kay’s Branch News: Mystery surrounding trucks and gravel solved

    Wanda has been to Mexico with an MKL tour group. They flew out of Cincinnati last weekend to a near perfect 75 degree, four-star Ixtapan spa. It sits in the foothills of the Sierra Madres Mountains. She didn’t say how many were in the group, but it was a mix of wives and husbands and ladies that needed a break from the winter weather.

  • Kay's Branch News: Cold weather means slow news

    Good morning. The sun is out and it’s lighting up the hard frost and freeze of last night.
    The TV said it’s in the teens but my thermometer says 38. Bless it’s little mercury heart. It always gives me a false sense of warmth in the winter. You see, when the sun comes up over the hill in front of my house, it shines directly on the thermometer which causes the mercury to shoot up and it rises to about the roof. When the shade finally comes, it drops back into its proper reading. I know this, but it makes me feel like spring is on the way for a few minutes.

  • Kay's Branch News: There should be a road kill department

    After rushing around like a mad rabbit all last week, this week is a blank. No cards, no plays or engagements of any kind.
    I did watch the basketball game on Saturday night to the exciting climax. They did good. For those of you who live in another dimension, I am referring to the University of Kentucky’s game with Missouri. Bless their little hearts, they’ve learned to make foul shots.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Let’s just ignore Saturday’s game

  • Kay's Branch News: Friends can always be found here

    It’s a lovely day to be alive. The sun is shining, the birds are singing - yes, the birds are beginning to come back. I saw a beautiful blue bird fly across my viewing area as I drove down the road this past week.
    Ann reports that the skunks are out too. The groundhog did not see his shadow, anywhere in the eastern part of the U.S. and Easter Sunday is early this year, so I am expecting an early spring this year. You heard it here first. Now watch it snow a blizzard on Easter Sunday.

  • Kay’s Branch News: A new ‘dog house’ opens on the Branch

    The Super Bowl has come and gone for another year. I am not a great fan of football so I opted for “Downton Abby,” but I did catch the tail end of it. I got all the gory details from Fay.
    She and Jennifer taped the commercials so as not to miss Adam’s Coors commercial, but unless it was scheduled during the black out, he didn’t make the cut. Maybe it was meant for just the west coast. I’ll have to get Wanda to call him and clarify.

  • Kay’s Branch News: It’s a good time to visit sunshine state

    I guess Fay and Bruce had already gone to the barn this morning when I called. It’s not a bad morning to be out. It’s a balmy 48 degrees this morning. This elevator weather has finally gotten me. I started sneezing Saturday and by the time I got home from church I sounded like I had gotten into the sneezing powder. By evening I had a full-blown cold. I have already cancelled dominos for this week. I don’t think I shall be ready for people in close contact by Wednesday.

  • 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.
