For Labor Day: Tallywackers UPDATE! Originally Written in '15, Now Closed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Visit Tallywackers' Site

Well, it's Friday, and usually I like to end the week on a lighter note.

     A while back I wrote a bit about, Tallywackers, a soon to be opening attempt at an all-male Hooter's, in Dallas, TX.

Oh Boy!<-LINK

To The Class of 2023!

       I wrote this in 1986 when I was graduating high school.  I don't think I finished it till the summer, so I don't think I had the opportunity to share it with many friends.  I loved high school during the last semester; and I remember being sad, about leaving and nervous about starting the next chapter of life.  The uncertainty of what would happen when close friends who had seen me through so much, scattered.  I am blessed to be able to say that I am still in touch with many of them.
      As graduation rolls around again, I thought I would share it here on Sadie's.  Hope you enjoy.

Yay! You're on Sadie's Gathering!

 Welcome to Sadie's Gathering. 

Or, welcome back, to Sadie's Gathering. 

I had a photo I'd taken of a branch with snow and ice, that served as the background photo to my title and description:

Sadie's Gathering

A Dab of This & A Dash of That...

then I decided to switch to a photo I'd taken in Ireland, in honor of the upcoming St. Patrick's Day.

However, for some reason, when I deleted the former photo, my blog title, Sadie's Gathering and the description were deleted. 

I'll admit, I'm not as tech savvy as I should be.  Or as I've stated before, (Technology vs. Me) technology and I do not get along. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

Till I figure things out, I'd include my title in any new post, or reposting older posts.  

Till then, have a great madness of March, and greatly appreciate any donations!

Thank you.

Joys of Winter (Cassoulet Recipe)

Since it's snowing, thought it was time to take a break and enjoy time with family, and just do a little writing.  Hope you enjoy!

Posted this the first time in October of 2015! 

When it was...

The first fire of the season.

A nice glass of red wine.

Raking up crunchy leaves, only to have them scattered again and again by laughing kids.

Now, it's 2023... 

Got a senior and a freshman in high school.  Still are often laughing kids, so that is wonderful. 

Along with a nice glass of red wine...

What better dish to accompany such an evening than cassoulet?

Please consider paying $1 or so, if you use my recipes or just to show appreciation.  Thank you.

Happy Late Groundhog Day!

It's now 2023.  I started Sadie's Gathering 10 years ago! 

So, Phil saw his shadow... or whatevah this year... so we have six weeks more, of winter.  To me, (whatevah you wanna call the PTB (Power That Be) It is Mother Nature's decision... so who knows what the daisies the weather will be like ...

Hope you have a great year, regardless of the weather. 

If I ever made $ with Sadie's Gathering, I'd write a lot more on here... 

So, if you spend time here, enjoy the eclectic posts, photos, recipes, or whatevah... please contribute/pay, a bit... I've had a friend pay $5, which I was so pleased with... then I had one that I admire greatly... (even before they contributed to my blog) give $150!

Needless to say, after that I hoped to not have to find another job to pay my bills. 

Yet I did. 

I still keep my hopes going. 

I'll do all I can to keep as many hopes for as many I can, going! 

Happy 2023! 

Turns out, this post applies in 2021 as well... well if we're just talking weather... there's new posts to come... but for now, enjoy quarantining with your loved ones!!! 

Good ol' Phil saw his shadow this morning, so six more weeks of winter.  

No he's not a meteorologist.  But heck, after the lack of, well, snow, for New York's Snowmageddonand yesterday, one site described our area precipitation as "light snow".  Chicago got around 19 inches.  Figure Phil has as much chance of being in the ballpark, when it comes to predicting the weather, as anyone else.

There's been times that I've thought of encouraging my kids to pursue a career of meteorology.  Other than a pro baseball player, it's the only job I know of where one can get it wrong most of the time and still have a job.
