Funky punkins; mischievous munchkins. #Wordless Wednesday

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

  1. I enjoyed scrolling through the pumpkin pictures, and suddenly the squirrel munchkin filled the screen. He was looking straight at me, and I had to giggle. Fun!

  2. Oh dear, this reminds me that it’s probably time to dispose of our pumpkin and gourds. Wouldn’t want the local squirrels sneering at our messy garden. 🙂

      Ha ha – the squirrels likely would finish them up for you to be honest. Marge, my former next-door neighbor, told me of a place about five miles from here where people threw their pumpkins into a field and there was a herd of deer that used to feast on them. The herd was near a wooded area, but after Halloween would come close to the highway to look for pumpkins when people started tossing them into the field. But that said, we drove there a few times but never saw any deer.

    Ha! Nice photos, especially the squirrel trying to look like he’s not guilty at all.

      Thanks Ally – we had that heat wave and some pumpkins looked like they melted just like the Wicked Witch of the West and others, thanks to the squirrels, looked more gruesome. Yes, the squirrel was wearing a defiant look, though he was 100% guilty.

    I saw a few pumpkins this year that the squirrels got into. They don’t have a chance, the pumpkins. 🙂

      Ha ha – no, you are right about that Sandra. Those squirrels bite into the whole pumpkins before they are even carved. I’ve seen them pulling the Indian corn right off the corn husk stalks where they are attached. They keep destroying things, sometimes pulling the entire kit and kaboodle down altogether.

    Oh, no! Those pumpkins ARE funky! I bet the squirrels will have a field day with them if they get a chance.

      That heat wave did the first one in – he reminded me of the Wicked Witch of the West in the “Wizard of Oz” just melting away. The squirrels are into all the carved pumpkins the next day and don’t waste any time. If you put your carved pumpkins out too early before Halloween, the squirrels will likely ravage it.

  10. Too funny!! The first one cracked me up. How it feels for COVID year.
    And I did not know that squirrels got into craved pumpkins, although that should’ve been obvious. Squirrels get into vegetable gardens and food left outside. They had a feast on those pumpkins and even posed mischievously for the camera. Love the squirrel-tude!

      Yes, a COVID-year pumpkin for sure Esther! Squirrels love pumpkins and I watched a squirrel last year take apart a homeowners front yard display … he bit a couple of pumpkins and gnawed through hunks and then climbed up the cornstalks and tore down the dry stalks, ate the Indian corn, knocked over the pumpkins. They are cute, but really mischievous sometimes. People leave the empty pumpkins after Halloween and the squirrels eat them so you see faceless pumpkins … kind of funny to see them climb right on in.
