Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

I am very ashamed that I have waited so long to write about sugaring in Vermont, but time seems to have just passed me by before I knew it! So, I want to make up for my error today. I think that probably one of the hardest things I have ever done was to help with sugaring, back in the day! Now I want you to know that I was young and thought that I...

  Is it spring yet? Or even the beginning of summer? I don’t know about you, but I have had enough of winter or whatever pretends to be winter/spring. I am ready for a nice, warm day that has lots of sun. And I am not the only one, my animals are looking for a nice day also. So, we all can only hope. Most of you who read this column know that...

  I am sure that there will be retailers who think what I have to say is outrageous! But I don’t want them to think that I am telling the public not to shop locally, because I really am not. I shop locally and am always pleased with what I buy. However, I would like to add that if local retailers would be sure that they and their employees wer...

  I think that what I hate about “spring,” what passes for spring in Vermont, is the cold, dreary weather! When we are blessed with a sunny day, I can hardly contain myself. It is during those lovely days that I envy those who actually have a spring at this time of year. You know what I mean – those who can look out their window and see...

  Just the other day, I had had enough of the lousy weather! I don’t really mind the snow and when the time is appropriate, I don’t mind the rain. But what I just hate is a very gray day that is made even worse by slush that is falling from the sky. It is bad enough on the roads or on the path from my house to my car, but falling from the sky...

  Before I even start to write this, I want you to be sure and know that I am 74 years old, in fact, close to 75. And Malcolm is 75 almost 76. And the reason you need to know our ages, is that we are just too old to do what we we’re told to do! And here it is… I went out of the house the other day and the smell of skunk assailed my nose. Oh, L...

  I got thinking the other day that I really never told you what happened about my tooth. As you might remember, Malcolm went to our local Stop and Shop on the Cape and bought some pitted olives to use in something he was cooking. These weren’t canned olives, but ones that you had to dip from a big pot at one of their kiosks. Well, he did and...

This very morning, I decided that I would contact the Keurig people and see if they could help me with my coffee maker, which is driving me crazy! Lately when I try and make a cup of tea, it only gives me about 1/3 of a cup. Now that might not sound too bad but in the morning hours when I need that tea boost, it drives me crazy. I called the number...

  I don’t know about you, but I get more catalogs than you would think possible! In my opinion, the cost of mailing a letter for you and me is outrageous at best. If they (whoever they are) would charge the catalog people a fair cost to send their stuff, we would not have to raid our savings just to mail a letter. Keep in mind, I am so old tha...

  This winter, I have been reading even more books than usual. I love reading and have always been a voracious reader, and it started before I even went to kindergarten! I am not sure if I could read at such a young age because we didn’t have TV, or if I just learned when I was young and really loved every minute of it. But my reading ability...
