Hopscotchin’.

Yup, I have to say I couldn’t resist doing a hop, step and jump on a sidewalk during my walk today.  It seems alot of Easter chalk found its way into Easter baskets because I’ve seen rainbow-colored scribbles and scrawls on quite a few sidewalks.  While most of the chalk artists drew flowers and some lopsided-looking rabbits, someone (probably a parent) had drawn a hopscotch diagram…well, I couldn’t resist!  Afterward, I chuckled to myself when I remembered a neighbor about ten years ago who had her little boy lay spread-eagle on the sidewalk and she drew an outline around him.  I watched out of the corner of my eye, while he did likewise for her.  She was a little large for such an exercise and I thought he’d run out of chalk before the outline was completed.  Their sidewalk looked like a police crime scene for days until the rain came and washed it all away.

About lindasschaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, and this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for over three decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, although I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too.
