Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss For me, pets only mean three things. And the three are, of course, dogs, cats and birds. And if you wonder why, it is because those are the three type of pets that we have had over the years. Of course I am not counting the Guinea pigs or other such rodents because they were always at our house for a very short time. I know that some...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss When we were young, no one that I knew ever thought about or discussed whether you were being fed anything unhealthy or inappropriate. Think abort it. When we were young, do you remember coming home from school and been given a snack of plain old white bread with butter and sugar on it? If your mother did that today she would probably...

By Judy Reiss Now that most of our fall or Leaf Season activities are over, it is now the beginning of the Holiday Season. Actually I hate not to call the season Christmas. In fact I always say Merry Christmas and not Happy Holidays. And I do that for two reasons. Probably first and foremost it is because since the day one, America has been conside...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss I have always loved Halloween and when I hear about people who do fun and fantastic things I am always sad because I do absolutely nothing! I like to give myself a break by reminding myself that I am old and also don’t have much of an imagination anymore. But if you are one of those people who go to town with fantastic costumes and cr...

By Judy Reiss This past summer, when I was at the Cape, I realized that I needed to buy some compression stockings because my ankles were swelling. Good Lord I thought, growing old hasn’t been kind to me and now I have to wear really old lady stockings! What could be nicer than thick, black and very tight stockings? So I went to the biggest drug st...

By Judy Reiss I am having a hard time today deciding what to write about. I have always made it my policy not to write about anything that is just too controversial to put on paper. It isn’t that I am afraid that the paper might explode, it is more that I am afraid that I might explode! However, I am so weak that I can no longer help myself, so tod...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss When I was a little girl, I can’t remember any holiday that I looked forward to more than Halloween. I lived in a neighborhood that was filled with children, mostly boys. And because we had the biggest lawn and backyard, the boys allowed me to play and be part of the gang. Now if you wonder what any of that information had to do with...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss For those of us within a certain age, what is happening in our country and our world is almost unbelievable! The thought of wars and bombs right in our own towns and cities is actually more like a nightmare. When we were young, can you even imagine such a scenario? I really don’t think so. Keep in mind we were of the generation that p...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss Since I was a little girl and even a young woman, things have changed! And I try to imagine how the world has changed for every generation. Although I don’t really know what all those changes were, I am sure they influenced just about everybody at the various times. And although there are an amazing number of changes in our lifetimes,...

By Judy Reiss I want to think that when someone reaches my age, it should mean a smooth and easy daily life. Well, although I hate to actually tell you how wrong that scenario is, I do want to share with you the last five days of my life. And please note, that every single word is true! Believe it or not. Well I am not sure if it was actually Wedne...
