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.

Dainty-looking weeds and antique doilies.

I often do my best thinking while walking, especially on a Sunday morning when there are less people pounding the pavement at my favorite nature nook. My musings this morning occurred as I passed the wildflowers and weeds that are … Continue reading

Trekking in Trenton.

I hit the ground running this morning as it was my first weekend without any big chores to keep me hunkered inside the house.  Besides, who knows if every weekend will be perfect weather-wise going forward … so, you seize … Continue reading

Take me to the river.

My boss was out this morning since he had to drive back from Cleveland in the wee hours of Thursday.   He had attended a gala event last evening, the christening/renaming of one of our client’s freighters.  Renaming a Great Lakes … Continue reading

Golden boy.

I think ol’ Mother Nature has hoodwinked us into thinking it is still Summer when it is really Fall. I know I stepped outside yesterday and immediately decided that I needed another layer to warm me up.   I ran into … Continue reading
