Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss I am not going to talk about the crazy weather, although I would really like to. It was bad enough in the winter when it was cold and we had gob of snow, but right now, this summer, the 90s is just too hot, at least, for me. Nope, what I want to talk about and get your opinion about is toilet paper! Now I am sure that there are many o...

By Judy Reiss I’m willing to bet that most of you who read this column were brought up very much like I was. Although the name of the town wasn’t Mayberry, it was very much the same. When I started kindergarten, I not only walked to school, I walked home for lunch, back again, and then back at the end of the day. It was quite far too! When I was in...

By Judy Reiss I have a summertime question for you…What is the difference between a vacation and a trip? Now before you answer, think about it. Well, I have given it a lot of thought and here is what I think. If you take a vacation or go on one you do so so you have no worries and little to nothing to do. And unless your kids are old enough to know...

By Judy Reiss Nobody was more excited than I was to learn that I could have my very own computer to use at home. I had one at work for several years and for me it was an amazing transformation from pencil to pen to typewriter to computer. And think, what could be more exciting then to have my own personal computer at home to do whatever I wanted to...

By Judy Reiss I am sure that over the years I have mentioned that back in the day, I was a very good baker. Not only that, but when Malcolm and I met, I was the baker at what was the Sugarbush Inn in Warren. And because the Valley was small back then, I also baked at various other lodges, too. Truthfully, I am not sure I was that good but I could m...

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...
