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.

Fall Aflutter and Peanut Butter.

Fall continues to hum along.  I have to look at the calendar every morning to remind myself what month it is, let alone what season we are currently in. We awoke to snow on Friday morning.  It was an ugly … Continue reading

Every Picture Tells A Story.

Most of you know that I am a Canadian citizen and lived there until age ten when our family moved to the States after my father was transferred with Ford Motor Company. While I have never been very much of … Continue reading

Walkin’ the walk … (or trying to anyway).

When I left on my walk this morning, the wind was whipping about, threatening to snatch my woolen hat right off my head.  I placed my hand over that hat to hold it in place and knocked it askew, causing … Continue reading

Leaf Peepin’ – Part II.

Wow, the weatherman aced it for the weekend weather.  I sure am glad I flip-flopped yesterday’s agenda and made it today’s instead, because the morning started out calm and a little sunny, then everything turned ugly and gray and the … Continue reading
