  • Kay's Branch News: Mother Nature ignorning the calendar

    I got up and rebuilt my fire this morning. I let it go out Saturday, laboring under the delusion that spring might actually be here. It was in the high 40s and the sun was shining. Fay said they got out and cleaned their Martin houses and rearranged them. They didn’t have many last year, so they decided it was the locations. They had just gotten the job done and were back in the house when they saw the first scout fly in. The birds are on schedule, even if Mother Nature is not.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Time for the March lion to take a hike

    Everyone who lives in Kentucky knows that the weather here can be fickle, but this is ridiculous.
    After a beautiful spring day and 70 degrees on Saturday, Sunday was a real bummer.
    Wanda said Ray had gathered a can of nightcrawlers and was planning to go fishing, but that plan was snowed out. I saw them, dressed in padded coveralls walking up the road Sunday afternoon toward his sister’s house instead.

    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: 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.
