Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

    If there is one thing that drives me crazy these days, it is taxes! Now I want you to know that I know absolutely nothing about how much we have to pay, but I do know that for us, the amount of property taxes we have to pay is impossible. When we bought our house 47 years ago, our property tax was $300. Again, I am not a complete dope...

  One of my favorite memories of being young and in school, was when I was in third grade. I can vividly remember the thrill of learning that we would not only learn how to write in cursive, we would learn by using ink! How excited I was when each one of us got a glass jar filled with ink that was placed in the inkwell on our desk. And then we...

  I have decided that the more I watch TV these days, the older I feel! I am not talking about watching the programs that I used to watch when I was younger, although they would also be a good example, I am mainly talking about the news! Every night, regardless of what else I may be doing, I sit down and watch the world news. And right from th...

  I know that many of you are close to my age, so I decided to write something that will not only make you feel good, it will also give you the opportunity to reminisce about the “good old days.” One of my more interesting memories is about going to the movies when I was young. And by young, I mean from about age 7 to 12. We lived in Cranford...

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...
