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

      Me too Mary. Some of those March winds – we are getting 40 mph winds this Friday as March and its frequent high-wind days winds down. I have lost a few hats while walking at the Park – one sailed off my head and over the Creek and caught onto a branch where I couldn’t reach it.

    I’ve never thought about the angst a bird might feel when their feathers are ruffled. Ha!

      That’s for sure – only a few more days of those high winds too! We have a stormy night/tomorrow, with 40-50 mph winds – yikes! Glad you like the photos and caption for this seagull with its bad feather day.

    Poor seagull! I know just how she feels. Bill doesn’t have to worry about a bad hair day – no hair! 🙂

      I agree! Our family had pet birds for years. They are so much smarter and complex than many people give them credit for. As to the feathers … the moulting … it used to amaze me, how such a tiny creature had so many feathers. During moulting, it was like someone had a fight with a feather pillow!

    It seems like the wind has been blowing all month. and I can identify with the gull. My hair is getting long again so I started putting it up again because it blows in my face. Cute pictures. 🙂

      Yes it does – the weather has been mild but really gusty. We’re supposed to get some more rain today – hope that helps you out along with what we got yesterday. I have to cut my hair again – I’ve not been to get it cut since October 2019 … I’m no hairdresser, trimming it at the bottom only.

        That’s about the last time mine was cut too. I just trim my bangs. My sister has always cut my hair for me since we were in high school and she went to cosmetology school. Last spring her husband retired and they moved to Tennessee. 😦 I will probably let it grow now until I see her again. Maybe this summer.

        I just trimmed, but did not do a good job. And I had highlights 18 months ago and they’ve grown out and I think I’ll just leave it like that. My hair is shoulder length, so I can’t do it myself. I hope you two can re-connect this Summer.
