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 seeing your gulls! 💙 They look like they’re bonding in the third picture…

    You know, I always love your photos & stories but gulls? Nothing but scary! Thou shall not let watch your kids The Birds too early …

      Jeanine – these gulls on the boardwalk are pretty well behaved unless someone is feeding them, then they come out of the woodwork! The rest of the time, they either perch on the boardwalk or fly overhead. I was there last year, when a few gulls were out, then a guy came with a bag of bread torn into small pieces. He was tossing it out and suddenly 30 gulls swarming around just like in The Birds. Yikes! I took a few pictures, but they were flying into one another to get the bread, so I left.

        Seaguls are basically flying rats 😉 I will never get cool with them … Although, now that is has been years since living on the beach, they do have a bit of a holiday feeling. I’m so sorry, I will never be a fan. But it’s really not their fault in the end …

        You know that a lot of people feel that way about squirrels – they call them rats with tails. I like them and they’re cute, but take away that furry tail and yep – they resemble rats. I had an opposum in the yard this Summer. I went in the yard after a storm to see if anything had fallen in the air conditioner unit because it was high winds and we have trees around … it was early in the morning. Lost a year off my life, that prehistoric-looking thing looking at me. 🙂

    Is it too early to proclaim this as the best title of anything posted on the internet in 2021?

      Ha ha – thank you JP! It’s funny because I grew up in Canada where we pronounce “buoy” as “boy” … so that would make the title funnier. The gulls, in the space of a minute, went from side-by-side companions, to one looking longingly at the buoy, then an about-face, then leaving. I decided on the title as I clicked away. 🙂

      Glad you liked it Diane – I saw those gulls and buoy and the title popped into my head right away! I think today is warmer than when I took this photo on the boardwalk back in June! We are going to be warm until the last week in October and I’m sure it will be likewise for you!

    The flow leading to the energy of the last image was well done

  10. Fun title! I think my favorite thing about seagulls is their mew… it’s so evocative of the shore.

      Thanks Janis – everything lined up just right to use that title. I agree with you. I’ve been down to the Detroit River on the coldest days and the seagulls are buzzing around overhead – it sounds like the shore on a Summer’s day.
