Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

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...

Reiss’s Pieces

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...

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...

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...

By Judy Reiss If I had a better sense of humor I would be able to laugh at all the really stupid things that are happening to me as I grow older. First, I should share with you that no one ever told me, when I was young and yes I was young once, that old age is as difficult as it is! Now that I think about it, it is probably a good thing. You would...

By Judy Reiss For me, Easter meant spring and spring meant new shoes! My grandmother used to take me, my brother and my cousin to Cristandi’s Shoe Store and we each got a new pair of “Easter shoes”. And for me that meant a new pair of wonderful Mary Jane’s. I can still remember the happiness that I felt when I looked down at my feet and saw those b...

By Judy Reiss You might not know that I am really a movie buff, and I love to go to the movies. Although the older I get, the more discriminating I become. I don’t go to scary movies, and for the most part I don’t go to a movie that has too much violence in it. I love comedies, for the most part, and of course I love the old musicals and movies tha...

By Judy Reiss I am not sure what Random Acts of Kindness actually means any more! I am ashamed to admit I think being kind to someone today is a lot different than it was in the past. Now, many kind acts can be misconstrued as interference which would negate whatever kindness that you thought you were doing. Don’t think that I am just writing the f...
