Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

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...

By Judy Reiss I have always considered myself almost a savant about trivia! Just ask my children, I don’t think I have missed an episode of Jeopardy since it began about 30 years ago. Every night that we watch the program I am as quick as a bunny to shout out the answers. And a lot of the time, I am right. And when I answer a particularly hard ques...

By Judy Reiss I think that as adults, we must teach our children how to actually apply for a job. It doesn’t matter if they are looking for a fulltime job or just a part-time job to make a little money when they are still in school. Somehow we have neglected to teach our children how they should present themselves when applying for any and all jobs...

By Judy Reiss I have thought about writing this piece for you for quite a while, but this past week brought it to mind almost hourly! If you wonder why I am writing this, please know that there will be a moral at the end. Since I have been handicapped, I find walking difficult, at best. But I have been amazed at how kind people are that I don’t eve...

By Judy Reiss First, I want you to turn on your radio or whatever piece of equipment you have that plays current music. Do you have it? Now, I want you to listen to some piece of “music” that your teenage children are listening to. Do you have it? OK, now I want you to listen to the entire thing. Now, I want you to turn off the radio or whatever. C...

By Judy Reiss Back in the day, I owned and operated a day care center based at the Sugarbush Ski Area. For those of you with a long memory, it was the first type of childcare center at a ski area in the country. I was very proud of it and worked very hard to make it the best place for a child to spend their day – both local children and the childre...

By Judy Reiss I went to a state college (now university) in New Jersey in 1957-58, and I went there because it was the only place I could afford. I had to work my own way through and although the costs were small, it still was hard for me to cover all my expenses. But, I have to tell you, I really liked it. And before I go on, I do want to tell you...
