  • It’s Sunday night again and here I sit trying to think of something to write. It seems the weeks just fly by anymore. I have another cat, just what I need, another animal to feed. When I took the computer to Tutt’s last week to get the programs put into it, Tutt was complaining about the neighbor’s cat scratching on his door and tearing up the screen. He was threatening to do bodily harm to it. I said, don’t do that, I’ll take it to the farm. I got an e-mail from Ann Thursday saying that the lady had advertised online, looking for a home for the offending animal.

  • Recipes are pieces of history. They have been written down on small scraps of paper or verbally passed from one generation to another. Early arrivals of Owen County shared recipes with family and friends, and today those same recipes produce a variety of specialties that originated in England, Ireland, Germany, Italy, and Africa.

  • Claire Alexis Tabor was born Sept. 2, 2011, at 11:51 a.m. at Central Baptist Hospital in Lexington. She weighed 7 pounds, 2 ounces and was 18 3/4 inches long.

    Paternal grandparents are Steve and Cindy Walters of Monterey; great-grandmothers are Joyce Walters and Barbara Watson, both of Monterey. She is the niece of Jeremy Robinson of Louisville. Bri is the great-granddaughter of the late Bill Brown, Cleveland Walters and Stuart Watson.

  • After two weeks of dry weather, the rains started a week ago Sunday afternoon and didn’t stop till the following Thursday. It felt more like November than September.

  • The cool, misty rain enveloped the picnic pavilion at the Owen County Historical Society Museum, and the scheduled September picnic was moved indoors at the I.O.O.F. Hall. However, even the effects of a hurricane could not dampen the festive mood as over 30 people gathered to share a chicken dinner — what’s a picnic without chicken — and trade stories.

  • In the continuing saga of my ongoing battle over household décor with my husband, this time it’s the back sliding glass door.
    But before I get to that, let me back up to say that in the first 30 or so years of our marriage my husband rarely expressed an opinion about how to decorate the house except for one hard and fast rule: I could choose any color to paint the walls as long as it was antique or Navaho white.
    Other than that I had free reign — and I love to reign.
