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

      You are right Eliza. I had a picture of my shoes I took yesterday – took them off as I wanted them to look worn and old but the picture wasn’t good, so I used this one I have indeed used before and another of my cutie pie Parker. Love, light and glitter back at you!

    National Walking Day is today? This is for realies, not an April Fool’s Day joke? ‘Cuz today I’m being super cautious about believing anything. You understand.

      Thanks Ann Marie. I took a photo of my walking shoes to show how worn they looked but took them in the cellarway and the linoleum is a red-brick look and cast a pink glow on the shoes so I went with these. Parker was cute, so I had to include him here. I hope you can get out tomorrow and Friday mornings as it will be nicer and even sunny.

      Thanks Diane – I hope to continue my daily walks at the Park if we are still permitted to go outside … and Mother Nature cooperates as well,. I am looking forward to watching Spring unfold and seeing all the feathered babies. 🙂

    Awesome job Linda, I did not know there was a national walking day. I did walk yesterday to celebrate. 🙂

      Thanks Sandra – this was because we had a fairly mild Winter so I was able to get out more, especially on weekends when I try to get 5-6 miles in each weekend day in good weather, so I could do that amount all Winter. There have been years where I had to essentially start from scratch in late March/early April to build up my daily miles again as I’d barely walked all Winter. Only the ice stopped me this Winter as very little snow. I hope to continue this pace, unless we are forced to stay inside – so far we can still go out to walk/run/hike and bike – they are discouraging taking a car ride except for essential trips, so I wonder if that will stop people from venturing to parks that are in more rural areas? Sandra – I would stay in Iowa as long as you can – Michigan is now third in the nation for Coronavirus cases … stay put as long as you can. I’m glad you celebrated too – I’ll remind you when it is National Hiking Day.

      I finally saw Parker today Joni. I drove to the Park today to give the car a small run. I shut the car door and he saw me and came running over. He was foraging near the parking lot. I was happy to see him. The longer time went by and with the Cooper’s Hawks above, I was getting very worried about him.

        Are the Cooper Hawks only a problem in the springtime, or are they there year round?

        No, they are around year around and this past Winter, I was driving and one swooped down from a tree as I passed under it – it barely missed the windshield with a big wing – I was sure it was going to come crashing through. We have them in the neighborhood, sitting up high, even teaching their young how to “hunt” prey like mice and small birds … yes, even squirrels.
