Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

  The older I get and the more time I have to sit and think about things, the more I have decided that the best idea that I have ever heard of is “ pay it forward.” If you don’t know what “pay it forward” means, let me tell you. It means that you should do to someone else a good deed, especially if someone has been good to you. And this winter...

I have had so many people talk to me about their childhood and how different things are today that I really began to think about it. And I have to tell you that I also believe that things are different today and I am still not quite sure if the “good ole days” were really that good!   I know that back when I was growing up, children were defin...

  I had dinner the other night with an old friend, who shared with all of us that his grandmother had just passed away and he had to work with the rest of his family to empty out her house. And what he found, he thought was worth sharing. In her kitchen, right over her stove, he found a small jar that said on the side, “used string,” and when...

  Ever since Malcolm and I have been married, which is now 47 years, we have been supporters of various charities. Well, you can  imagine how upset we were when shortly before Christmas we heard that one of the organizations we supported had stated publicly that they are anti-gay. Now, I don’t know about you, but as opinionated as I am, I don’...

I must admit that I am finding 2014 very much like 2013! As always, I didn’t make any resolutions for the new year because I either never keep them or I forget what I resolved. So, the new year is just an opportunity for me to continue on with my life and hope that all will be well. I don’t quite understand what is actually happening in Washington...

Happy New Year!   Boy, this last year went by in a flash and I am assuming that this year will, too. As I have told you before, Malcolm and I have never gone out to “celebrate” the coming of the new year. I guess we are just not a fun couple who enjoys large crowds of people who are celebrating in a way that they will find embarrassing the nex...

Well, the Christmas part of this holiday season is now history for 2013 and it was a wonderful time for the Reiss family. I have to admit it wasn’t like a Norman Rockwell painting, but it was fun although very hectic.   Malcolm and I are the only ones that stayed at home but Sarah and Rene and their three children came on the Saturday after Ch...

Well, here it is! Merry Christmas! I know that all of us have been anticipating this wonderful day and not just because it is a day to give and receive gifts, either. No, I think that Christmas means time spent with family and friends, which is the most terrific day of the year. And if you don’t have family or friends to celebrate with, don’t despa...

  I know that it is only a few days until the wonderful night that Santa Claus makes his trip around the world and leaves presents for all the good boys and girls. And I am not so old that I don’t remember the excitement as I lay in my bed and tried to stay awake in order to hear the reindeer hooves on the roof and maybe, just maybe, hear Sant...

  I have tried very hard to wait for another week before I think seriously about Christmas. In the past I have started to really get ready and I try to convince others to prepare themselves. But not this year. This year I am holding off until probably, next week. You know that I love the holiday season so I have decided that I will enjoy this...
