GRRRRoundhog: go back to your burrow!


Grrrr to the grumpy groundhog who has a day named after him. We Midwesterners collectively watched and waited with bated breath to get the scoop on Phil’s prognostication about our weather for the next six weeks. Well, Phil dashed our expectations, but really and truly – did he disappoint? Nah. We had the good sense to suspect he would say we had six more weeks of wintry weather. Even Woody, our local woodchuck out of the Howell Nature Center, had an identical prediction. I guess we Michiganders will just suck it up and carry on. I’ll mosey downstairs to hop on the exercise bike, since it will be a long time before I lace up the old walking shoes, especially after the freezing rain left its mark. My driveway was treacherous when I took out the garbage and ran the car earlier today. Not the glaze ice, but this bumpy, lumpy ice that looked like a crystal washboard up and down the sidewalk and driveway and along the front of the garage. The car and I aren’t going on an excursion any time soon, of that I can be sure.

About Linda Schaub

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, so 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 four 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, though 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. - Linda Schaub
