Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

Our lives today are so strange that it is so different from what most of us remember from our childhood and the childhood of our own children that if I wasn’t actually living during these times I would assume that I must be living in a Grims Brothers Fairy Tale. Think about it, do you know anyone who lived in a family or a community who not only al...

Malcolm and I seldom talk about politics and what is going on in the world. Well, he doesn’t talk about what is going on while I must admit that I do! In fact, I think that I do because Mal doesn’t hear very well and nothing makes him madder than for me to say something once, twice, three times and this time with my throat at full sound possible. T...

Although I hate to admit it, it seems that too many of my columns these days are ones where I am complaining about something! And believe me that isn’t the way I would like them to be. It just seems that, for me anyway, things have changed so fast that I am really unable to either catch up or, at least, stay even! And I am back with my arthritic fi...

By Judy Reiss When I was in school I think the word that we all had to learn was RESPECT. Now the young people of today don’t have any idea what that word means. I wish I could blamee it all on the kids and the young people but no matter how hard I try, I just can’t blame it on any of them. Why you ask? Well, althouugh the blame started quite a lon...

By Judy Reiss When I was young there were lots of holidays that I loved but there was none that I liked more than Halloween! Now things were much different then than they are now. No one that I knew had “Store bought” costumes but no one seemed to care. We all had costumes and I think that we all thought that we looked just terrific. I don’t think...

Do you remember when you were young and you and your friends gathered together and played every single day in your neighbor’s yard or if you were lucky and lived on a dead end street, in the street! And what was most amazing wasn’t that every child for miles around showed up and played together. Nope, it was that the kids decided what game they wer...

This past summer I had the one that was completely different from the past 77 of my life! I always find the summer as one of the most pleasant ones of my life. Always since I was born, I have spent the summer at the cottage my Great grandmother build for her two daughters in South Dennis on the Cape. Of course, my family had lived part-time and ful...

Yesterday I sat down and wrote a long and “terrific” column! And before I could send it, I must have hit a button that I never saw before and bing bang, it deleted itself. And when I say deleted that is just what I mean. No column and not a single word left!   Malcolm came home and I begged him to find it. I was sure that it was hidden somewhe...

By Judy Reiss This Sunday was a wonderful day for me. Since, oh probably right after Christmas I have not been able to go to church. Not because I didn’t want to go but because I was either in the hospital or in Mayo’s Rehabilitation Center. And believe me, it is harder to figure out how to go than it sounds. But now I have been home for almost a m...
