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

      Yes they do Peggy and their gentle cooing in the morning is so soothing. We have a lot of dovs at Council Point Park suddenly. I find them under the Safe Haven Tree munching on seeds. Did I mention the “mystery lump” in the Park? It was in the middle of the grassy area two days in a row, sleeping in a big lump. We did not see its face or a tail but thought it was a raccoon due to the size and fur. Another walker and I saw it Sunday morning; Monday morning it had moved – out in the open both days which was strange. I called Animal Control in case it was injured/sick/rabid. The other walker gets there earlier than me and said it was raccoon – he saw it walking around. I wasn’t happy to learn what raccoons eat and did not know they ate carrion.

        Weird what that racoon did. They generally do not stay in the open like that. They can be mighty mean.

        That’s what I thought too Peggy. Why would he/she just decide to sleep out in the open? I didn’t see it again, so grateful for that. I have heard that about them – have never seen one though.

        Coons have been known to kill the hounds of hunters. They have wicked claws and teeth.

        Wow – I didn’t know that Peggy. That’s really vicious. I am glad it didn’t awake from its sleep in a grumpy mood then. I still don’t know why it didn’t pick a less obvious place to sleep!

        It was either sick or wounded in some way.

        I agree Peggy … I am glad it is gone now. My neighbor came home from work to find two raccoons in his garbage can. The City provided wheeled cans, maybe 55-gallon cans, a few years ago. They have lids that snap down, but those little paws that look like hands, opened it and two of them had plopped in and were rummaging around. He showed me a picture of it the night of the fire when we were standing around outside. This is not a rural area and at the Park, it is not dense there, just trees along the Creek and the Park is bordered by residential areas.
