  • Kay’s Branch News: A bad spring for planting

    I thought summer had finally come, but I’m back in jeans and a sweatshirt this morning. The blackberries are blooming in great clusters, so maybe this will be the last cold snap we’ll have, if you consider 58 degrees a cold snap.
    There was a lot of hay cut last week. I went to Frankfort and to church on Sunday and there was rolled hay everywhere. I have yet to see any tobacco planted though. This has been a bad spring for planting.

Did you know that a United Nations high commission has even noted the right to play as one of the Universal Rights of the Child? Play is how children learn. The activity does not matter. It can be building with blocks or cuddling a teddy bear. It can be putting together a puzzle or jumping in puddles in the rain. It can even be washing dishes and reading a book.
