Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

  I suppose that many of you know that my favorite holiday is fast approaching and is now on the horizon. I just love Thanksgiving and it isn’t just all the wonderful food that is available and served. No, what I really like the most is the historical significance of this wonderful family day. Keep in mind that Halloween, which I think is the...

  On the 27th of this month, Malcolm and I will be married 47 years. I, of course, had lived in our town for about five years before our marriage. And when I first came to this town, I thought it was the most wonderful place I had ever been. I had kindly neighbors and everyone in the town seemed to love being together, Actually, I thought that...

  I’ve decided to give you an update on at least one of the Reiss family menagerie. Why did I decide to do that? Well, in my opinion the world as we know it today is going to hell in a hand basket, and with the news media making everything worse! If that is possible. On the other hand, what could be more pleasant than reading some observations...

  Well, Halloween is here, and I hope that you got into this very American holiday and bought a mask or managed to create some sort of costume for yourself. I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of any other holiday that has been created just for children. I know that my children and now my grandchildren planned their costumes for weeks ah...

  I know that I told you a while ago about the lovely young woman who went out of her way to help me when I was shopping at T. J. Maxx last Christmas season. She not only helped me to take everything out of my cart and put them on her counter to check out, she also loaded my cart back up and then took me and my parcels out to my car and loaded...

  Well, we are finally back home from the Cape. And it is probably just dumb luck, but the weather here is much nicer and considerably warmer. But now that I am back, I have to spend a lot of my time going to the physical therapist. We – the therapist who I absolutely love, and I – decided that five times a week is too much for me...

There are so many things that can and should be discussed that I find it difficult to pick only one. And the one that I picked for today is so silly and maybe downright stupid that I should be ashamed, but you know that of course I’m not. And so here goes.   If you are like me and watch TV, it actually doesn’t matter how much, I am sure that y...

  I know that over the years, I have discussed books, authors and how much I enjoy reading. Well, I find the older I get, the more I read – and not only read, but am obsessed about reading. What I wanted to share with you today is my new favorite author and how I happen to find out about her.   I am not sure how long ago it was but...

  When I was in 7th and 8th grade, the entire class had to go one night a week and take dancing lessons. I know that the girls didn’t really like it, and I can only assume that the boys hated it! But back in those days nobody asked what they wanted to do, so when dancing school came around, we all went and although we might not have liked it,...

  I can’t think of anything more important to me than old age! No one ever told me about old age and how it was going to change my life and everything that I had believed was true, and that I would have to change all my thinking.   First, let me tell you that with a few exceptions, old age sucks! I know that many of you will disagree beca...
