Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss Are you exhausted? I have to admit that I’m not and that is probably because after Christmas, which I love, and all our family except two got together, it was sort of the end for me! And by the end I mean that we just don’t do New Years. And why not you ask? Well, it is because neither of us drink at our age and even if we host a part...

By Judy Reiss Christmas is over but not the holiday season! Relax, I am not suggesting that you or anyone else should still give presents. I know that the gift giving is fun and expensive but it does help make Santa’s visit more exciting and more fun. So how can we have a holiday season without cards and presents? Let me tell you. This week from Ch...

By Judy Reiss Back when I was a child, you went to the doctor that your parents picked. And as far as I can remember, no one asked you if you liked him, and it was always a him. Yep, you went to this local doctor whether you liked him or not. But as I grew older, I realized that you didn’t have to trust your life to a doctor that you didn’t like…or...

By Judy Reiss For me, pets only mean three things. And the three are, of course, dogs, cats and birds.

Of course I am not counting the Guinea pigs or other such rodents because they were always at our house for a very short time. I know that some...

By Judy Reiss When we were young, no one that I knew ever thought about or discussed whether you were being fed anything unhealthy or inappropriate. Think abort it. When we were young, do you remember coming home from school and been given a snack of plain old white bread with butter and sugar on it? If your mother did that today she would probably...

By Judy Reiss Now that most of our fall or Leaf Season activities are over, it is now the beginning of the Holiday Season. Actually I hate not to call the season Christmas. In fact I always say Merry Christmas and not Happy Holidays. And I do that for two reasons. Probably first and foremost it is because since the day one, America has been conside...

By Judy Reiss I have always loved Halloween and when I hear about people who do fun and fantastic things I am always sad because I do absolutely nothing!

But if you are one of those people who go to town with fantastic costumes and cr...

By Judy Reiss This past summer, when I was at the Cape, I realized that I needed to buy some compression stockings because my ankles were swelling. Good Lord I thought, growing old hasn’t been kind to me and now I have to wear really old lady stockings! What could be nicer than thick, black and very tight stockings?
