Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

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...

Reiss’s Pieces

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...

By Judy Reiss Well, it is tax time again and it would appear that our legislature and our governor have lots of ideas and programs on how to tax Vermont citizens. And I can’t think of a much harder job these days. One of the reasons is because it would seem that these days everyone wants something and no one really wants to be responsible for his o...

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss In 1965, Malcolm and I were married in November and late in the spring, we bought our house, the same house that we are still living in! Of course, it needed a lot of work to make it habitable. But one of the first things we needed to do was to fix the driveway. What we had was just a dirt path from road to house/barn, so we did what...

By Judy Reiss My wonderful grandmother was born just after President Abraham Lincoln was killed. I am not quite sure of the date; just I believe it was about 1870. Her stories about her childhood and growing-up experiences made my childhood a wonder! Remember she wore long skirts and corsets and was taught to behave like a lady from day one. And al...

By Judy Reiss No one was more surprised than I was when, one day, I found myself unable to walk without a cane! A cane? Me? I had always thought that canes were for “old” people, so what was I doing with one? Actually, I have to tell you that a cane was really a compromise between me and my wonderful physical therapist. I promised her that I would...

By Judy Reiss In 1966, my first son, Tobi, was born and no one was more thrilled than I was to have such a wonderful baby and to be a mother. However, I really knew very little about how to care for him. He was born at DeGosbriand in Burlington, but I was extremely fortunate to find Dr. Ellerson in Montpelier to be his pediatrician. I firmly believ...
