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.

As to Spring – we’re not there yet folks, contrary to the fact that I’ve been sneezing my head off, despite decades of allergy shots and popping an OTC Alavert every morning before I head outside.  Right now the pollen … Continue reading

Slightly Askew.

I was happy to hear we would have two nice days for our weekend, with just a bit of rain late Sunday afternoon to mar the great forecast.  The weatherman said we’d hit 65 degrees F (18 C) today.  “Right” … Continue reading

Friday Frivolity. 

Well I blew it – big-time!  What is the first word in the title of this blog?  “Walkin’”… right?  So, how could I just drop the ball and not do a blog post commemorating walking? This past Wednesday was “National … Continue reading
