All I Want For Christmas Is You! #Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday – allow your photo(s) to tell the story.

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

      Thank you Terri. They were so intent on looking at each other, they never even saw me there. I knew I’d find a reason to use that picture. I do like that about the waterfowl’s devotion to each other for life. I’ve seen pairs of Mute Swans where they barely left each other’s side, though they were the only swans in that particular area of water at the time.

    Growing up I lived by a lake- Canada geese everywhere…. didn’t hold any fascination for me for so long…but now…I miss them. Great photo!

      I know what you mean orthodoxmom3. We have a lot of Canada geese around here in the parks where I go. They are very territorial, but if you give them wide berth, they are fascinating to watch, especially when they are with their goslings. We always have four or five families around Mother’s Day every year at the Park where I walk most weekdays. And the goslings, once they are a few days old or maybe a week old, start to mimic their parents hissing at the walkers. It is funny to see that happen. They are adorable little fuzzballs, then all at once they are teenagers.

    Miss Linda…………………………..one goose said to her mate………………”Yippee the sun is out today for a change!!”

      Yes, it made them conspire to go for a walk and enjoy that sun. It was nice today wasn’t it Ann Marie … cold, but perfect for a walk. I went to Humbug Marsh to see a unusual duck that stopped there yesterday and I read about it on the Refuge’s Facebook site. It was still there today – a long-tailed duck, but this was a juvenile, black and white duck … kind of cute.

    Mariah Carey seems to have hit permanent Christmas icon status.

      You’re right about that JP and, like I mentioned before, I sure don’t know why she has attained that icon status. Maybe it’s because I am older, but I like the classic Christmas songs, all the oldies but goodies, even the ones geared to kids. My all-news radio station reported the other day that one of the most-disliked Christmas songs was “Santa Baby” by Eartha Kitt. I thought that song was cute but I never liked the Madonna version of it.
