Tuesday Musings.

Remember when we used to acknowledge National CB Radio Day every October 4th ?  It was known as “10-4 Day”.  I never heard anything about 10-4 Day today … perhaps we are too immersed in the upcoming election and endless sparring by the candidates to notice, or, we’re celebrating National Taco Day instead.

At any rate, I was glad to restore my CB “handle” to “Walking Woman” instead of “Woman Wistfully Peering Out The Window” … thank goodness for that! I took the car for a wee spin, it having not escaped the garage in almost a week, and, its owner likewise had not left the house, having dealt with rain all those days, and the HVAC tech who stopped by for a furnace check Monday morning.

I was rarin’ to go, so I slipped out the door and noted the dregs from the earlier dense fog still evident everywhere. The sun was piercing through the clouds and made me have to squint a bit plus shield my eyes with my hand to see anything.  I hustled along, and the fog dissipated by the time I returned from my walk.  I got in about three miles, so tomorrow, with camera in tow, I’ll stop and get some photos of the harvest and Halloween décor I saw today, which somehow escaped those torrential rains unscathed.

I’m glad to be back to the routine again … maybe I’ll be a little less cantankerous now.

That’s a Big 10-4 Good Buddies.

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

      They sure are Marge, and a lot of harvest decor as well. I took many pictures yesterday and some more this morning. I can use some harvest pics after Halloween and up to Thanksgiving I think … there will be more decorating done as well as it is still early. Too bad that a lot of the hay bundles got soaked from last week’s torrential rains, the mums are little bedraggled now, and the pumpkins in this 80-degree weather may not last as long as originally planned.

    Miss Linda……………………………..okay please explain to me what you mean by: “10-4 Day”

      I will send you a link about it separately Ann Marie, but, it used to be kind of a big deal back when truckers used their CB radios to “talk” to one another. That was a world before the internet for e-mail or cellphones for people to communicate with one another on the go. At the end of the talking “session”, when truckers signed off they said “10-4” … kind of like saying “over and out”.
