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

    Love the signs!!! Are these yours or others? I like them all but the third best because it says it all in just a few words.

      Glad you like them Ellie – they are all mine. The salon where I go for my hair is owned by a husband/wife. Jim makes and sells the signs using slate pieces or repurposed wood. They are hanging all over the shop and he usually sells them at local street fairs/art fairs. Unfortunately all of ours are closed this Summer due to COVID-19. I have several of these signs. These are my favorites.

        Yes, I do Ellie. I’ve not been there yet due to COVID-19. Jim paints all year around and without selling them at art fairs and street fairs, he’ll have a lot of them. I haven’t seen many painted rocks this Summer like in Summers past. That surprises me as I’d think kids would be stuck in the house so a perfect time to paint. Some kids sports opened up earlier in the week, but the U.S. has had a setback and our Governor is not putting us to the next level as planned for the holiday this weekend and in fact will revert us to the prior level if things don’t improve. She is strict but we were in a bad place back in early April and we improved a lot. Hoping they don’t close the Park again.

        So you’ll make some rocks! They’d be perfect in your garden if they’re bigger ones.

        I have to find some rocks – I have river rocks around the house, but they are not large enough or flat enough – they are kind of round and irregular shaped.

        I didn’t know it had to be a specific shape…

        Well, the flatter and larger the better as you can put more on the surface, but my river rocks would not be good for painting on them as they are all irregular shapes. There are several landscape stores around here that sell the rocks just for this purpose – they buy the bigger and flatter ones in large quantities and sell them by the mesh bag or individually – you can even buy them individually or bring or buy a bucket and fill your own and they sell by the pound then. I am sure they made a fortune doing this when the rock painting craze began. Not expensive either and for a while, they were giving about 10 to a person if you went in. There was a woman who is a painter and she would find the smallest flat rocks and paint onto them – she did some portraits as well as miniature scenes. She was very creative.

        Can you draw Ellie? I’ll bet you can do this. I watched this tutorial on YouTube … try it and if comes out, get yourself some paints. 🙂

        Hmm. Can you email me the link? I can’t open it from here. I’ll try…. and then use pencil crayons. We’ll see if I can or not.

    Glad you like them Shelley. At the hair salon where I go, it is owned by a husband and wife. Jim paints and letters the signs made from slate or repurposed wood. They are always inspirational and are hanging everywhere at the shop and he sells them at art fairs/street fairs (all cancelled this Summer unfortunately due to COVID-19).

      Thanks Diane – he had so many inspirational signs that I was hard pressed not to come home with one every time. 🙂 He did some creative things with him, like put smaller slates on a Christmas tree or a wreath – I liked that too.
