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

      Yes, they looked fragile for sure Wayne. I thought downtown Wyandotte would be decorated for Christmas as it always is, even though they cancelled the parade. Nothing really, so I wandered around and these were ornaments on two memorial trees at a riverside park. They were two family members, identical ornaments and decorations on the two side-by-side trees. It was difficult to take photos without getting my reflection!

      • You should put a few decorations up in the safe haven tree! Surely that Grinchy person would not take those down as well? If they did than you know It must be the people who own the tree.

        That’s a good idea Wayne. I have a cardinal clip-on ornament. I bought my mom Blue Jay and Cardinal clip-on ornaments for our tree. The Jay fell off the tree and broke. It was china. I don’t put a tree up anymore – maybe I’ll try that. I likely won’t be back until Saturday. I looked outside at 3:30 – snowing a little and streets were still slick.

      • Great! Think of this as a communal tree! Put a note up that anyone is welcome to help decorate the neighbourhood tree! It can be a heart inspiring project!
        Than after it’s so well decorated you could put the treats back up as the person would surely not disturb a social tree!

        I like that idea … I wonder if it would go over well. But the last two weeks since we had that 3 1/2-inch snowstorm, the snow melted and I have been the only one walking all week long … that is in the morning, but most of the people I know who walk, aren’t walking now that it’s cold and especially if it is icy/snowy. I may get down there tomorrow and no one’s there – they probably didn’t plow it – not enough snow and without being plowed/shoveled it will not have melted. I like the idea of a social tree though.

      • People are searching for some understanding and normalcy in their lives! Having a communal tree for all to build and share will bring everyone closer emotionally…….not physically!

        Yes, the new normal is not a good place right now. We have many, many public service announcements on the radio for numbers to call and reach out if you are suffering from mental illness.

    Such pretty decorations! One of the very first posts I wrote on this blog was about a run I took on a nearby rail trail. On the way back, I noticed a bunch of Christmas decorations hung on trees that lined the trail. I hadn’t noticed them on the way out! I can’t believe I missed them. There must have been at least a dozen.

      Yes, aren’t they pretty?. The glass-blown decorations are always so nice – these were huge. They looked so fragile and I had to take lots of photos to ensure my reflection wasn’t in the bulbs. These ornaments were on two different family members’ memorial trees – identical decorations in side-by-side trees.

    Very pretty! I hung my partridge in my mom’s pear tree, and my birch tree…..it’s tradition.

      I like that idea of hanging the partridge in your mom’s pear tree! These were such delicate glass ornaments and were on two memorial trees at BASF park. The two trees were for members of the same family and had identical decorations.

      I know! They just took my stuff for goodness sake! These were on two memorial trees and they were side-by-side trees belong to two family members. These were the only two trees decorated and the bulbs were so fragile looking – I hope they stayed on the tree as we’ve had some high winds lately.
