Pea soup again and fans keepin’ the faith.


The fog came on little cat feet once again this early morning. I always loved that poem by Carl Sandburg. Here in Lincoln Park, there wasn’t as much pea soup as the other ‘burbs – it was just mighty misty. In thinking about that poem, I could not help but make an analogy to one of our favorite feline teams – the Detroit Tigers, who will begin wending their way through the playoffs today hoping to attain the ultimate catnip – er, prize … winning the World Series. Will they be clawing and scratching all the way? Will it be the Year of the Cat? It’s hard to predict right now, isn’t it? I saw this bumper sticker at the rear of a bright red pick-up truck. A wistful and forever fan who no doubt will be holding onto the dream as long as possible.

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.
