Kays Branch News

  • Kay’s Branch News: Someone is looking out for me

    After the big weekend last week, I kind of coasted all last week.

  • Derby Day means a Kentucky party

    We’ve gotten two good rains and the grass is ready to cut again. I just finished the last section of the yard on Friday. One of the downpours had some wind with it. I didn’t hear it because I sleep like the dead when I go to bed, but Wanda said a tree was dislodged by the storm and fell across part of the road just below her house.

  • Kay’s Branch News by Bee Spicer: Strong turnout for Arts in the Park

    Last week was a picture postcard week for our area, sunshine, mild breezy days, fit for about anything one would want to do outside. I divided my time between mowing and cards. The third week of the month always has bridge on Tuesdays and hand and foot on Fridays. I did well at cards, won at bridge and split the games of hand and foot. I can take my winnings and buy a cup of coffee anywhere.

  • Kay's Branch News: Almost time to quit talking about basketball

    One more game to get through and my life will be my own again till next November.
    I got so vocal Saturday night that both indoor pets, Binks and Dobby, asked to go out. It was a great game. I’m just sorry we had to eliminate the other Kentucky team. I was happy to see four Kentucky teams in the tournament.
    After today. I promise not to mention basketball again for a while.

  • Kay’s Branch News by Bee Spicer: Cats and Gators delay birthday celebration

    The weather suits my mood this morning.
    The Cats lost Sunday and Tiger pulled something in his leg and had to withdraw from the tournament. I’m going to have to get a new hobby. I’m getting too old for all this trauma.  
    There’s really not much news this week. Johnny Bob did get out of the hospital and was moved back to Kindred Northfield Nursing Home on Hunting Road.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Checking in on old friends and rooting for Kentucky

    I hadn’t really noticed that this was a leap year till this week. I’m not terribly observant. I’ve missed my chance to propose to someone. Since I had nobody in mind, it’s a moot point.
    Weird weather report: Wanda said she went to Barbara and David’s Friday night for supper. She said the wind got up and torrents of rain began to fall, along with lots of loud thunder.
    When she went home and got out of her car, she found a big pile of ice, or more specifically, balls of hail where it had landed on her metal roof and slid off into piles on her sidewalk.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Dull weather makes for dull days

    We missed another big one over the weekend.
    All of Bill Meck’s dire predictions didn’t come to Owen County. It’s been a very strange winter, or lack of winter on the Branch, but we still have March to get through. I can remember 8 inches of snow on March 8 several years ago.

  • 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.
