Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

  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...

Reiss’s Pieces   Nothing is harder or more frustrating for me than trying to use our new Apple computer. Right now I am writing on my iPad. Why am I not using our new computer.? Well for one thing, I can’t find where to write, and for some reason, I have a tremor and my hands seem to be writing all by themselves! It is so frustrating because I...

  A few years ago, I saw a movie and the underlying theme was “pay it forward,” and I have thought a lot about that theory over the years. What does that actually mean and how does it affect me? But I must admit that although I thought about it, I didn’t put that concept into practice. Until now!   I know I told you that this summer has b...

This past summer must be one that should be in the “strange” record book, and not just because the weather was so erratic and strange. I can tolerate the weather as well as the next person, but I do think that going from 95 degrees one day to 47 degrees the next is really asking too much of the human body. And then, of course, going from a day of b...

As most of you know who follow my column, my family and I are summering on Cape Cod. I would like to say that we are having a wonderful vacation, but the truth would be that it has been less than perfect! First, the weather has been strange, at best. Either it has rained like a monsoon or, when the rain finally stopped, it was hot as places I have...
