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

    That first shot with the bird that seems to grin would make a great meme – it’s just waiting for the right caption. 😀

      I think so too Margy and their expressions, sometimes deadpan, sometimes quizzical, always make me laugh. I follow a UK blogger and he these pictures of Black-Headed Terns he takes at a bird sanctuary. They look very unusual.

      Thanks AJ – one plus from my walking regimen was starting to take photos for the blog and it was a hobby at one time when I still had the 35mm camera but I kind of got away from it over the years. I saw this seagull doing that and a little bell went off in my head “I’ll do a post and call it seagull yoga.”

    That seagull IS a yogi! It reminds me of when my dog Benji used to do down dog with me when I did yoga at home. I miss that!

      Isn’t that incredible? I knew when I saw this seagull that it was a Wordless Wednesday post and what I’d call it. This seagull seemed to move in slow motion … yes downward dog by a bird. That would have been cute Benji doing yoga with you – poor little guy. It will soon be about a year already.

      That seagull does better than me too Diane! After I took a tumble in a snowbank in the Winter, a fellow blogger told me her doctor recommended a yoga tape and gave me the name. I ordered the DVD from Amazon and have not looked at it yet.

      I think they’re photogenic too Joni. They have these facial expressions sometimes when they look at you. I love this cooler weather – it was perfect for working outside on a big project. Who wears a heavy sweatshirt with a tee-shirt under that on the 30th of May?

      Thank you Barbara. That seagull’s poses got my brain gears clicking while I was watching it and taking pictures and I knew it would be a fun post about a seagull doing yoga. 🙂

  14. You’ve taken a cute series of photos. It’s hard to look at them and not imagine what that little bird brain is thinking. Good job!

      Thanks Janis … I am always hopeful when I go down to the Detroit River boardwalk that a seagull will happen by so I can get a few fun shots to use in my blog. This seagull looks a little exasperated with me in the first shot. 🙂

    Have you even entered your photos in a contest, Linda? That first one is just sayin’ to the judges, “Choose ME!”

    • Linda Schaub says:

      Thank you for saying that Dave. I have not entered any pictures with the DSLR which I use on the weekends (the rest of the time on my daily walks, I use a digital compact with 12X zoom). But years ago when I used to travel, I had a 35mm camera and entered a contest through the travel group I went with. I always traveled solo, but hooked up with a travel group at the start of the tour. For that trip, I went on a 3-week Scandinavian and Russia tour and I entered an ordinary-looking milk cow in front of a quaint, but typical, Swedish home. It looked peaceful and it won first prize, plus they used it in the Maupintour brochures for that trip. I was ecstatic. I think seagulls are so expressive. I like that first picture too. The picture that I won the prize is in this long post – if you scroll near the end, you’ll see it. The cow was even smirking! A few pictures down is a butterfly on a coneflower that was in our local newspaper. My fifteen minutes of fame!
