  • The other morning I ate breakfast in the moonlight.
    The temperature outdoors was several degrees cooler than the temperature indoors, so I took my bowl of Cinnamon Chex/Fiber One with unsweetened almond milk and my cup of coffee, opened the sliding glass door that separates the living room from the back screened-in porch and sat at the high-top tile table.
    It was early — I’m a ridiculously early riser — and it was still dark out except for a sliver of a moon.

    We are excited to have the Outdoor Channel’s Chuck McAlister coming to Long Ridge this Saturday. Chuck was the longtime host of AdventureBound Outdoors, a program that gave him the opportunity to hunt and fish across the country and beyond.
    That program pioneered the magazine-style format for outdoor programs and won four national awards. It won the Fan Favorite Award twice on the Outdoor Channel.

  • In Kentucky, the weather always comes first.
    It was 22 degrees Saturday morning, 26 on Sunday and 24 on Monday.
    Everywhere else was registering in the low 30s on the TV map. I think my thermometer is just old and gets colder than most, but it works for me.

  • It’s really starting to look and feel like fall on the Branch.
    It was 39 when I got up on Sunday morning and 43 Monday morning. It is always colder in this valley than any place else.
    Everyone is busy finishing up outdoor chores and putting away equipment. The bush hogging is done at Bruce and Fay’s and they are cutting wood for winter. John has been dropping trees and cutting them into burning lengths. Ann and I helped split, load and haul two loads of wood to my wood lot on Sunday afternoon.
