Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss I guess everybody knows that we have two cats and two dogs. What you may not know is one cat, Victor, is very old, a Siamese cat around 16, and the other cat, Yul, is about 14. Then we have two dogs, Lily, a 13-year-old Yorkie who is blind and deaf, and 3-year-old Rufus, who is a standard poodle in good health. What I want to share wi...

By Judy Reiss I know I have mentioned before that I am an avid reader. I firmly believe the most important thing we can teach our children is how to read. And if you teach them this skill when they are young, I think they will be able to learn almost anything plus learn to love to read! However, nagging you about teaching your children to read isn’...

By Judy Reiss It has been a long time since I told you about the furry members of our family, so it is about time. Actually, I really didn’t think about it, but Victor did and let me know that it was definitely time that I shared his “story” with you. For those of you who don’t remember who Victor is, let me tell you about this wonderful boy cat. I...

By Judy Reiss Do you remember when a few months ago, I wrote about being scammed? Well, I did and the reason I wrote about it was because I thought if I could fall for such a stupid thing, I wanted to be sure that everybody within the sound of my voice would be warned. Hopefully, it saved someone from being as stupid as I was! This isn’t quite the...

By Judy Reiss I have written more than one article about the wonderful community dinners we have in the Mad River Valley. The last Friday of every month is the time and the United Church (the white one in Waitsfield) is the place. However, without the efforts of all the different organizations who take turns cooking the dinner and serving it, it wo...

By Judy Reiss There have been so many things I thought I ought to write about this late spring or early summer that I am actually in a quandary! But here I am and as nervous as I am about writing about this issue, I just can’t help myself! As I write this, the two men who broke out of Dannemora prison, the most secure prison we have in this country...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss For me, the beginning of spring always started on Memorial Day. When I was young, it started when I was a Brownie scout, and I had to march in a huge Memorial Day parade. I marched when I was a Girl Scout and when I played in the school band. And back then, no one was excused, period. If you happened to not show up, you had to bring y...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss Now that I have decided to be comfortable with not just the idea of old age but that I am now that old woman, I am realizing just how lucky I am! I have a terrific husband who is extremely good to me, especially now that I can no longer work or get around the way I used to. I have four wonderful children who all have jobs, are good to...

By Judy Reiss I am hoping that by the time you read this I have already left to spend the summer on the Cape. Seldom do I write something that I think people will not only hate but have to let me know what a terrible person I am, and this is probably one of those columns! But I just can’t help myself, so here goes. A few weeks ago when the news was...

By Judy Reiss I used to think that it would be lots of fun to get e-mail. What a great idea, to be able to get in touch with friends regardless of where they lived, but to receive information from those very same friends that I hadn’t heard from for years. And then, reality struck! What I found out was that if and when I donated even a few dollars...
