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 love seagulls even when they are stealing my food. We don’t get them inland but along the Jersey coast when on vacation.

      Me too Kate. They glide overhead and always remind me of Summer days along the water. I had three sets of seagull photos that were amusing. This is the last set and I’m sure there will be lots more down the line.

    You should ask your readers to submit thoughts on what his companion is thinking. He looks – well – embarrassed, to say the least!

      It was funny that day I was watching them Ann Marie. It was at Bishop Park. The looks on each of their faces made me smile. It sure was gorgeous today, though a tad icy at the Park when I was down there. I came back home pretty quickly and walked in the neighborhood where it was snow-and-ice-free. I’d have never thought so much snow would melt, even if it was balmy out there.

    Reblogged this on WALKIN', WRITIN', WIT & WHIMSY and commented:

    Wordless Wednesday … with a twist.

    Fellow blogger Dave ( commented on today’s post entitled “Pavarotti?” by suggesting: “You should ask your readers to submit thoughts on what his companion is thinking. He looks – well – embarrassed, to say the least!”

    Over the course of several shoreline visits to the Detroit River in Wyandotte, I saw enough crazy Seagull antics to use the tagline #Seagull Shenanigans three times.

    When I created this post, I came up with a ton of fun titles to call it, based on the Seagull with its mouth wide open and the deadpan look on the other Seagull’s face. If that wasn’t funny enough, the singing Seagull was wearing a very sheepish grin in the last shot.

    So, among the post titles that sifted through my brain were:

    “The Bad Boys of the Boardwalk”
    “Pennies from Heaven”
    “Catching snowflakes on my tongue”
    “Bad joke or bad breath?”
    “Gulls just wanna have fun” and …
    “That takes a lot of gall, er … gull!”

    So, while Pavarotti the Ring-billed Gull was screeching up a storm – what do YOU think his companion was thinking … is he embarrassed by his gull friend or perhaps he/she secretly covets that voice?


  6. They have the sweetest faces.

  7. He’s saying, “this is my spot and I’m not moving.” The other one is is thinking, “Okay, chill out, whatever…” And that’s why the first one is looking so sheepish, all that fuss over nothing. 🙂

  8. Both expressions are fabulous! One seagull is happy to be at the beach yelling “yahoo!” The other one is like, “please bro, cut it out. Remember we’re in public.”

      Glad you liked this … I get a kick out of seagulls Esther … they have these human-like expressions sometimes, just reading the look in their eyes. I was at the River last week and had a seagull perch not far from me, so got a lot of shots of him/her too for an upcoming Wordless Wednesday in March.
