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.

Meandering at Memorial Park.

I am often scrambling around to get going in the morning.  I hit the snooze button a few too many times and even the lure of a steaming cup of Joe and my oatmeal (maybe not as enticing as that … Continue reading

Tuesday Musings.

Well, June marches on, and, in a few more days, Summer will be here … on the calendar anyway.  Weather woes. Not to be a weather whiner, BUT, it sure doesn’t feel like Summer is on the horizon, because on … Continue reading

Today’s the day to honor dear old Dad.

What’s good for the goose, is good for the gander. ~ Proverb Well we honored our mothers, so it is only fair that we fête our fathers too. Since the first goslings arrived at Council Point Park in early May, … Continue reading

Eat your peas!

About a week ago, I was down at Council Point Park one morning, and, while walking through the parking lot, a very large flock of Canada Geese were flying overhead.  Their honking, while in flight, was almost deafening.  In fact, … Continue reading

Glimpses of Grady.

This post is way overdue.  After all, I filled my blog with many tales about all my “porch pals” during the Fall of 2018 through early Spring 2019.  Then, all of a sudden, there were no more posts that mentioned … Continue reading
