Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss It is such a beautiful day today that it automatically brings to mind Halloween! Not the Halloween that the children celebrate today, but the Halloween of old folks like me! Now I know that many of you have no idea what I am talking about, so I need to take a few minutes and explain. I guess that it will be easier to tell you about th...

By Judy Reiss I don’t know about where you live, but where I do, the colors this year have been magnificent! I have lived in the Mad River Valley since 1959 off and on and then permanently since 1961 and I am always amazed at what Mother Nature has in store for us! And, of courses, the fall is one of those seasons that you can’t really describe to...

By Judy Reiss Over the years, people have asked me how (or why) I think about something to write every week. I wish I could give a deep and interesting reason, but the truth is there are times when I spend a long time trying to figure out how to tell something and then other times when something just comes to me as I sit down and turn on my compute...

By Judy Reiss There are so many things that I wanted to share with you now that I’m home again, that I have found it hard to choose. But here goes… Maybe you remember that before I went to the Cape for the summer, the therapists I had been seeing here, told me that I had to go into a pool during the summer because if I didn’t I would have to be in...

By Judy Reiss I think that here in the United States we are starting to go “full circle” or at least like most of the rest of the world! And here is why I say that. The role of the grandparent hasn’t really changed, but it is returning to the role that it had, almost from the very beginning. No longer is a grandmother a little old lady, dressed in...

By Judy Reiss I know I have told you about Santa Claus and how he has been helped over the years by friends and acquaintances of mine. What I have never done is discussed the Easter Bunny. Although this isn’t really about this famous bunny, it is darn close! My best friend lives in Maine and although that is really quite far from the Valley, we tal...

By Judy Reiss I know that I wrote to you about my wonderful flowered cane and how much I not only enjoyed it but how much attention it brought me whenever I used it. And I do stand by that cane and how much I liked it. Unfortunately, my back and my knee didn’t enjoy using it as much as I did! For over a year, my doctor and my physical therapist kep...

By Judy Reiss I am not going to talk about the crazy weather, although I would really like to. It was bad enough in the winter when it was cold and we had gob of snow, but right now, this summer, the 90s is just too hot, at least, for me. Nope, what I want to talk about and get your opinion about is toilet paper! Now I am sure that there are many o...

By Judy Reiss I’m willing to bet that most of you who read this column were brought up very much like I was. Although the name of the town wasn’t Mayberry, it was very much the same. When I started kindergarten, I not only walked to school, I walked home for lunch, back again, and then back at the end of the day. It was quite far too! When I was in...

By Judy Reiss I have a summertime question for you…What is the difference between a vacation and a trip? Now before you answer, think about it. Well, I have given it a lot of thought and here is what I think. If you take a vacation or go on one you do so so you have no worries and little to nothing to do. And unless your kids are old enough to know...
