  • I am not a happy camper this morning.
    The Kentucky Wildcats lost, again. It snowed, again and it hasn’t been a good week for me all around.
    I awoke Tuesday morning with a wet bed. No, it wasn’t Dobbs’ fault, my waterbed had sprung a leak.
    This has been the Winter of Water.

  • We decided to cancel church on Saturday.
    The Branch had as much as eight inches of snow on the ground and it was in the low teens. Snow was piled up on each side of the road and there were icy patches all along the middle.
    John took advantage of the 20-degree weather to bring me a load of wood from the wood lot so I would have enough to last this week.
    We were ready for another week in the house. I was content. I had wood, a movie, books, a golf game and the University of Kentucky game on TV.

  • This has been a hectic but productive week.
    Teri came on Monday to wash down the walls with vinegar. Then she and John decided that the lower part of the drywall needed to be cut away because it was still wet. She finished about 3 p.m.
    John helped me load three large trash bags into the car and I followed her to Owenton to the dump.
    She helped me unload and we went our separate ways. That was the last time I was out of the house all week.

  • They produce love and laughter, heartache and tears and build a tapestry of personalities that connect and bond together to create families. Each family member reflects the past, present, and future; and family stories etch themselves into memories and nourish souls.
    Preserving family stories presents challenges to modern man.

  • Danielle Mears and Zac Martini of Richmond are pleased to announce the birth of their daughter, Lexi Rae Martini. Lexi arrived at 3:04 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 16, 2013, at Frankfort Regional Medical Center. She weighed 5 lbs. 14 and a quarter ounces and was 19 and a half inches long. Lexi was welcomed by her proud grandmothers, Terri Mears of Sweet Owen and Lynda Martini of Guilford, Ind., along with six great-grandparents and many aunts and uncles. Lexi’s grandfathers are David Mears of Owenton and the late Jeffrey Martini.
     

  • I got in wood last week to last out the deep freeze and wasn’t out of the house, literally, till Wednesday morning.
    I suited up and went to Frankfort to play dominos with my friends.

  • Jay and Patsy Ball of Owenton and Paul and Debbie Brewer of Port Royal are proud to announce the marriage of their children, Kim Molina Ball and Paul Brewer Jr., who were united together in marriage Dec. 14, 2013 in Henry County. The couple will unite with their new family including children, Jacobi Brewer and Brooklyne Brewer.
     

  • I’m back into my routine -- rush around and get it done on Monday morning. This means the holidays are finally over and I can get back to normal, whatever that is.
    I went to Frankfort on Saturday and stocked up on books and pet food. I have enough leftovers to last me till February.
    It was 0 degrees on my thermometer when I got up this morning. I got in enough wood last evening to last till Wednesday, so I won’t have to get out of the house. We cancelled bridge this week so I have no reason to, but nothing lasts forever in Kentucky.

Danni is the granddaughter of Bruce and Ruth Kingkade and Ricky and Judy Williams, of Owenton, as well as Nancy and Bob Flickinger, of Florence.
