Kays Branch News

  • 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.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Cool weather doesn't stop the parties

  • Kay’s Branch News: Around here, everyone shares triumphs and tragedies

    The golf gods were evidently listening, because we had a very nice day to play to play Wednesday. It was cloudy but no rain nor wind. There were 28 ladies signed up to play and 28 showed up. That is a first. I think everybody had a very good day. I want to thank Gilbert and his staff for making our outing a success. All the ladies enjoyed the homemade pies. They always go out of their way to make us feel welcome.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Hoping for one final round

    Last week’s weather was spectacular. It’s a good thing, I saw tobacco in the field on the way to Owenton last week and there was still a field full of tobacco on the stick in the big field across from the church Sunday morning. This is about as late as I have ever seen tobacco still in the field. Hopefully they got it hung before the rain started.
    I am hoping the rain holds off, too. This is the week our golf club goes to Wheatley for the “Away Play” day. It will be our last outing of this year. My clubs will go to the basement for the winter.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Frost comes down the Branch

    We had a heavy frost Sunday morning. It was 31 degrees when I got up. It always frosts first at my house. I live in a valley. I did bring in the plants I had outside and saved them. The leaves on the sycamore tree are falling in bunches.
    They started on Joel’s new building at Earthtools last week. Some of the framing of the sides are in place. If they have good weather this week, it should be under roof by Friday. They work pretty fast once they get started.
