Zombies on a Zoom call. #Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday – allow your photo(s) to tell the story.

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

    Cute. I wonder how it is that this idea isn’t a thing?

      Thanks Ally – it is not really my usual type of post but I thought I’d try something different for Wordless Wednesday. I got the idea since I had all these up-close shots of the zombies. If it works for them …

        HA! So funny! I have never zoomed, so I’m envious of them….

        I have never zoomed either — I had seen pictures on social media, so I had to find a picture to make it look like Zooming. I figured this was an unusual year, so I’d do it just this once, but, at the rate we are going, we may be Zooming next Halloween too.

        I’m worried about everything these days, the pandemic, the election results etc etc. Which way do you think MI will go?

        I know – our stats are spiking, both cases and deaths and warnings galore. I am glad I am done with grocery shopping. Next week I have to go to the allergist for a once/year visit to check if shots are working out, etc. (I’ve been on shots since 1975 except when they said I could go off and the allergies came back so back on the shots again) and the furnace guy for a check-up, then hope to not have any interaction. They are concerned here about Thanksgiving and encouraging people not to have dinner except for the immediate family. I am worried about the election as well and right now both candidates have been here every day personally or a member of their family. On Saturday Obama comes in with Biden. Last time Trump took Michigan. I think Biden will take Michigan because he has insulted our Governor and treated her shabbily, however, his base and many other people think our Governor overstepped her bounds with excessive restrictions … okay, so you have less restrictions now and look where we are. We have a big rivalry football game this weekend … it is termed the “backyard brawl” … no one can attend nor tailgate for these two Michigan teams, but the Governor was begging people not to gather at bars or with friends to watch the game – watch it at home with your family. That’s not going to happen sadly.

        No one cares about football here, but I know it’s a big deal in the US. Our stats are good here so far, but not in the Toronto area, averaging 800 cases daily in Ontario, mostly younger people though, so fewer deaths. Most people I know had a quiet Thanksgiving with only immediate family or a very small number of guests in their bubble. I hope your furnace check up goes better than mine did with it’s five visits!

        This rivalry game today was on the news all day today and tomorrow, my all-news station will preempt programming on the radio and streaming too, for the game. Both radio news stations will cover it – one news station for MSU; my station for U of M. They have the pre-game at 9:00 a.m.; game at noon and then hash out the post-game coverage probably from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.! Maybe it’s good I can’t hear the news all those hours. We had a big spike in cases and deaths both yesterday and today and on the news nationwide they said we had 90,000 new cases yesterday which was more than the pandemic on its worst day last Spring. I hope it is a seamless visit too Joni – last New Year’s Eve I had a new circuit board and motor inducer put in so hopefully it is fine … in May, over Memorial Day weekend, I turned the A/C on and it wouldn’t start and had to have them out on Memorial Day, then a regular visit in early August (they were behind on check-ups due to COVID). It is always something!

      I decided to try something different since I think Zoom calls may not be a thing this time next year (hopeful anyway). And I had a lot of weird faces I collected on one of my strolls. A face only a mother could love. 🙂

      I admit they are not my usual type of photos, but decided since 2020 has broken all other barriers, I would try something new (just this once). These are faces only a mother could love.

      I thought so too – I had some more monsters and was going to just call it “Ghouls and Gals” but decided for 2020 this worked. Hopefully it does not work for 2021 too although I think nothing will be too normal in 2021 either.

      Thanks Matti … it is not my usual type of post but I did it because 2020 is not your usual type of year – I do not know how to do a Zoom call, so I had to look up examples on the internet. Have a good day tomorrow.
