  • Kay’s Branch News: Plenty of fun despite cool weather

    Kitty Sallee called last week to invite me to an unexpected bridge party at the Smith House last week. We had agreed at our Christmas bridge date that we would not play again till March, so this was a real treat.  It was a very cold but sunny Tuesday. We met at 12:30 p.m. for lunch. Pat brought Betty Marston to have lunch with us. It was so good to see her out and looking so well. I also saw Lou Ann come in with her grandson Chad to have lunch too.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Funerals, a wedding and life goes on at the Branch

    John and I went to Dan’s funeral last Monday.
    I learned that the man driving the pickup that ran into him was Larry Conway and that he was a member of the Monterey community. He was the son of Ruth Hazlett and half brother of Albert who lives next door to our church.
    Our hearts go out to the Hazlett family and Mr. Conway’s brother who lives in Frankfort. We are very sorry for your loss.

  • Kay's Branch News: Christmas means family down on the Branch

    I had a very good Christmas. The week preceding was kind of hectic but that’s to be expected. I had gone to Frankfort Tuesday to do the shopping and get gas, so I would have the rest of the week to stay at home and do the last-minute wrapping, make candy and clean.
    It wasn’t to be.
    June Stokley called Tuesday night to ask if I could play dominos on Wednesday. Now I should have said no but one must have their priorities straight. So I went to Garden Point to play dominos on Wednesday.

  • Kay’s Branch News: It’s tough to keep up with the Jones

    The new light looked so good I decided to go a step further and see about putting new vinyl siding on the house. I was pointing toward spring, but thought I would get a couple of estimates. Before I knew what was happening, I had a salesman here from Sears and had contracted for the job. I chose a sage green with white trim and was still thinking they wouldn’t start until maybe March. Oh no, the salesman said, they will begin in a couple of weeks.
    I thought the man was crazy - ripping off the siding of my house in December and working with vinyl in 35-degree weather.

  • Kay's Branch News: Red and green are in and orange and brown are out

    I’ve had a very good week, even though my house looks like a Christmas factory has exploded inside of it. I’ve gotten a little bit done in every room but nothing is finished, ergo, the guest bedroom looks like it’s packing to leave for parts unknown.
    The orange and brown has been packed away and the red and green laid out to be hung, arranged or placed strategically on tables, mantle or anything that doesn’t move.

  • Kay's Branch News: Holiday wasn't the biggest news on the Branch

    The good weather held long enough for all the Thanksgiving travelers to go and get home safely, for Joel to get the last of the concrete poured outside his new building and for the eager beaver Christmas shopper, who were camped outside the stores. Friday would be the last choice for shopping as far as I am concerned.
    John and I did go to Owenton Friday to visit with Teri and to see Sarah and Vincent while they were here.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Birthday makes Bee busy

    My social calendar was over flowing this week. I played bridge at Mary Ann Cobb’s house Tuesday and John, Charity and Ann took me out to supper on Wednesday.
    I had a day at home on Thursday to clean the basement and set up for the “hand and foot” group Friday.

  • Kay's Branch News: Busy days down on the Branch

    We’ve sure had a beautiful stretch of weather. Even the cloudy days were mild. It hasn’t been too good for the deer hunters though. There weren’t as many hunters on the Branch this weekend. Ann and I thought we saw one at Bruce’s barn as we went down the road Friday morning on our way to Frankfort.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Chilly weather slows things down on the Branch

    It was a slow week. No yards to mow, the golf clubs had been stored away, and the wood is ready to start building fires. I did go to my first yoga class last Wednesday. In the beginning I didn’t think I was going to like it, but by the time the class was over I had decided it might do me some good. At least, get me out of the house once a week.
