Aloof – #Wordless Wednesday

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.

      Yes, they both were full of attitude and maybe would have a change of heart and turn around and look at the other one who was staring into space. The bird on the right had its beak open like it was mumbling. They made me smile and worked perfectly for Wordless Wednesday, the first prompt I’ve ever done.

        I have never done a prompt. Maybe I’ll try it sometime.

        That was the first time I’d done a prompt Laurie. Because of the nature of my blog I don’t always stray from walking, though the Woodstock post I did and at the holidays sometimes I do. I have seen a few people do the Wordless Wednesday and it is on Twitter as well, so post with hashtag #WordlessWednesday if you do it.

    Wordless Wednesday! I Love it! Great idea. Do more! They really do look like they are having a spat.

      Glad you liked it Joni! I’ve seen that Wordless Wednesday prompt for a while, but never have done it, or any other prompt, due to the nature of my blog being more about walking and what I see while walking – the other prompts don’t always fit in. Remember Hugh from Hugh’s News and Views? I’ve been following him awhile now and he often does this on Wednesday … I thought these birds did look like they were having a spat … the bird on the right has its beak slightly open – I took that to be mumbling. 🙂 I had more pics in the “series” as I watched them about five minutes, but they were so similar I eliminated them. They kept turning around as if to make amends … it made me laugh. I pondered over what to call the post and was going to call it either “The Bickersons” after that comic strip (and the radio show from long ago) but I thought the younger followers might not be familiar with that married couple who fought all the time. Then I thought “Morning Mouth?” … and finally decided the pictures needed no words. I should do it more often as it was fun and quick to put together.

        It was quick and entertaining, and as you probably have more pictures than you can use, a good way to work them in.

        Thank you Joni, and I think going forward if I have a critter picture that is unusual and needs no caption, I will remember that. I have to go through my pictures taken the past month and re-organize them. Unbelievably, I haven’t even looked at last Saturday’s photos yet – that is a first waiting almost a week, but I was gone all day taking pics and there will be lots to sort through.

      They were just like people for goodness sake – they turned back to look at their mate or friend, and the other one wasn’t looking so they swiveled their head around, then the other one did it. They did it multiple times and I didn’t include all the pictures in the series – it made me laugh.
