Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

  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...

Reiss’s Pieces   Nothing is more exciting to me than getting ready for my summer at the Cape. I plan for weeks ahead and although I don’t need to pack much, I do sort through my summer things and pick which ones to take with me. And the dogs and the cats? Of course we take everyone with us and they know from the get go that we are preparing to...

This past spring Malc and I got a new laptop computer. We really needed one because our other computer was very old and beginning to show its age. Because of all our other things and because I have been ill and he has been so busy, neither of us tried to use the new one. My plan was when we got to the Cape we both would use it. Of course, when we g...

Heroes that we present to our children

I’ve been thinking recently about the heroes that we present to our children. I’m not sure that guys who can hit a ball or catch and throw a ball and get paid millions and millions of dollars each year are my idea of good role models. Back in my day, I think that we did have many heroes who were sports personalities, but those guys played their spo...

My New Year’s resolution

I hate to admit it, but I am the first one to complain if and when I get some type of service that I think is inadequate. It isn’t just that I am paying for good service (or food), it is because it the right thing to do. Right is right and anything else is unacceptable! My New Year’s resolution this year is sort of the opposite. Instead of complain...
