Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

I know this may be redundant, but I just can’t help myself! It is almost Thanksgiving and it is time for me to remind you about our forefathers/mothers and what they went through to make it possible for us to sit down with family and friends and eat ourselves silly. I am not sure what the weather was like when they arrived at Plymouth, MA but as on...

All of my children, which are four, all of my grandchildren which are 8, can and do use the Internet to buy stuff. I, on the other hand, can’t! Now, let me explain what I mean. What I mean is they are able to go onto the Internet, find the store or the place that sells the type of things that they want, and they buy it. I am able to go onto the Int...

When I got the invitation to go to North Litchfield Beach to spend a week with a group of my high school friends, I was unsure about going. First, I had no idea how I was going to get to Boston to fly down. That I couldn’t get a flight from Burlington was a drag (!) and Malcolm said he just couldn’t drive me down and then back, twice. I was also a...

I know for a fact that there are many people among us who really are “saints.” Now I know that these aren’t the good old saints that most of us remember from our Sunday school days, but nonetheless, they are today’s saints. I don’t want you to think about Mother Theresa or other popular saints of today, what I want you to think about are the saints...

I must confess, I am a jerk! Not only a jerk but a stupid jerk! And for me to admit such a thing is very hard because I have always thought of myself as a woman who was smart and clever. But those days are over! Let me explain why and what happened. Malcolm had to go to the Cape to pick up his van, so I was alone for a few days with no one but my c...

I don’t know if I have ever suggested a certain movie or play before, but I am going to, right now! And what I really suggest is that the men who might be reading this, put the paper down and go outside and walk the dog. This is really just for women! The night before we left the Cape, a friend called me and asked me to go to the Cape Playhouse to...

  A number of years ago, I wrote a column about the early bird. I am the first to admit that I know nothing about birds, but what I do know is that early in the morning, one bird gets up and chirps his call, waking up the rest of the birds. Not just his friends and family, but all the rest of the bird population within his chirping area. And m...

Although I have never tried it, I can’t imagine that soap made from ashes and lye was very pleasant to use. I suppose that it worked alright on very dirty clothes and when those clothes were soaked in boiling water, the soap probably brought the ingrained dirt to the surface. I also don’t know for sure, but I assume that the hands that dipped into...

If you read this column, you know that I seem to be obsessed with educating our young people today. But I really am trying not to discuss it more than one week in every month! I am still in touch with many of the girls that I graduated high school with. Although we graduated in 1957, most of us are still alive! And on October 18th, I will be flying...
