On the inside looking out this morning since rain has thwarted my walking efforts. While I enjoy my daily walk, I could not muster any enthusiasm to walk in the rain in the 83% humidity. Did it rain last night at midnight or thereafter? I never heard it. This morning I arose at my usual time and was sitting eating breakfast, switching back and forth between WWJ and WJR news, and distinctly heard two different weathermen say that rain was expected late morning. Great, I thought – I can get a walk in. While sipping my coffee I heard the sky open up and it started pouring – back to meteorology school both of you! Well, I’m already up, so why not write a short post and maybe get back to my chart for work for an hour or so before I get up Buddy. Yesterday I was working on a huge chart with lots of names and lots of numbers … really alot of numbers, and I told myself I needed a little break to rest my eyes. Some telepathic communication with cyberspace must have happened then because when I opened my eyes a minute later, poof … my internet connection was gone. Now, I sometimes momentarily lose my connection at work and have to log in again, but this was my own internet connection. DOWN. I stared at the yellow shield, hovered my mouse over those dreaded words “no internet” but nothing would revive it. Sigh. I closed the lid and went down the hall, had a snack, came back – still down. Called Comcast to see if there was an area outage – nothing; asked for a signal boost – nothing. Called my boss to tell him my lifeline to the office was kaput. Well, I’m no computer maven, but based on past experience, I pulled all six plugs for my modem and router, counted out two minutes, held my breath … voila!!! Nice to be back in biz and the chart was there waiting for me. Perhaps it was a celestial thing. Why not blame it on the blue moon? That blue moon should have been around last Friday night for the eve of the Woodward Dream Cruise. Now talk about a missed opportunity!!

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.
