About Linda Schaub

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, so 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 four 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, though 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. - Linda Schaub

Nutty Buddy.

I want to share a story, which blog post I was tempted to entitle “Animals Never Forget” (at least when it comes to food anyway). That statement makes me think of elephants which reportedly never forget … that’s not just … Continue reading

Ode to Dad.

It really doesn’t make much difference whether you’re a human dad or a Canada Goose dad … there are similar dilemmas, exasperating or even cringe-worthy moments. If you’re a dad, yep … I can see you shaking your head in … Continue reading

Log jam.

The critters at Council Point Park are mighty miffed as I’ve been writing about waterfowl, 5Ks and flowers, but not about them. I suspect this indignation was spurred on by Parker. As I walked around Council Point Park early Sunday … Continue reading
