Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss Until I went to kindergarten, I went from the hospital to live in Westfield, New Jersey. We lived in a small house and truthfully I can’t remember much about it.

Spring Training By Wayne F. Burke I did not like playing baseball in the Spring because it was cold in New England in April and catching the ball in the palm of my glove felt like being burned and hitting the ball anywhere other than on the meat of the bat felt like I’d splintered my fingers.

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss I was watching a TV program the other day and although the program was a little boring, I was very excited to see that the older woman was wearing a terrific hat. Not only did she wear the hat, she continued to wear big brimmed hats with bunches of flowers all over them. And mind you, she was just supposed to be someone’s grandmother...

Great Community Gathering; Thank You to Christ Church for Hosting

Editor, I just got home from a really great party. The buzz in the packed room was keen, warm, and hummed with excitement. Conversation was constant, and the food was fabulously retro! Where was I?
