About lindasschaub

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, and 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 over three 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, although 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.

Well, despite Parker’s antics that I described in detail yesterday, I did not don a disguise after all.  Instead, the high dew points and humidity made me subtract clothing – I shed two layers and I was still warm.  Slowly, … Continue reading

Acting Squirrelly.

Admittedly Parker is a squirrel, but there are some days when the moniker of “squirrelly” really fits him. Today’s post features pictures I took of my favorite Park pal yesterday.  The sun was out in full force – what a … Continue reading

Tuesday Musings.

 Sunny … yet sad. After a few days of dreary and drizzly weather, today was a real winner. In the past 16 years, it seems as if it has rained on this day, or been gray and gloomy, so I … Continue reading

Flora and Fawna.

Well, I was ready to head out fairly early with three options for my morning meander.  I peeked out the door to see if it really was as cloudy as the weatherman said … yup, another gray and gloomy day.  … Continue reading
