Time to fête the fathers in our life for their special day.
My Mother’s Day post was all about Mama Goose – first, her nest brimming with eggs and then her five sweet goslings. How could I top that?
And more importantly, could I find a few critter pics (besides geese or squirrels) to use for Father’s Day? Voila! While on a recent outing to Heritage Park for a virtual 5K and on an intense search for Mallard munchkins, I spotted a few turtles sunning themselves on some rocks. Fortunately they didn’t slide off the rock and plop into Coan Lake like they usually do, so I happily clicked away with the camera. Driving home, the ideas were percolating about how these turtles would become my Father’s Day post. I put my thinking cap on to come up with some fun captions.
Happy Father’s Day! There’s a special message at the very end of this post.
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
