Don't have a date for Halloween yet?

Left it to the last minute?

Never fear, Matchmaker Dewena is here!

Choose one of these handsome young men
and I'll set up a date for you!




















And maybe you should drive.

His driver's license may have expired.

Just drop him off at home after your date.

The nearest graveyard will do.



Have a good time and

Happy Halloween!

    1. You went back to my old blog! Thank you, Sandy! Didn't know if anyone would because I know how busy everyone is. I loved doing that mantel and finding appropriate quotes.

      Thank you for visiting the old Across the Way!

    1. Well thank you, Latane! .....I guess. Hope it wasn't too early in the morning for some creepiness!

      As we haven't had any trick or treaters except grandchildren in the 25 years we've lived here--the driveway's too long--our Halloween fun consists of indulging in weiner-wraps and corn candy scattered on a dish of ice cream while we watch a movie that's not too scary!

      Happy Halloween to you!

    1. Sheri, are the kids trick-or-treating tonight? I thought it was Saturday night. Or are they doing it both nights now? Smart kids!

    2. Oh, I meant tomorrow night, Saturday. We moved to a new house, so there are only a few kids in the neighborhood so far. : )

  12. Can I have the fella front row, second from right? I'm sure he's still 'up to the task' ;).

    Dewena, isn't there a way for you to bring your old posts to this blog? There's so much goodness over there!

    1. He's yours, Doreen! and what a doll he is!

      Doreen, that's so sweet of you, but I don't know how to do it. I can't even figure out how to do a linking button on my sidebar to it. I am fond of Across the Way and probably should have never discontinued it. But at least I didn't delete it, as our sweet friend Rue did. Life is full of lessons, isn't it?

      Thank you for going to the old blog, Doreen!

  18. What a cute offer. At my age, it is hard to find one who doesn't qualify to be returned to the graveyard - one way or another.

    1. So funny, Sami! I read your comment to my husband and told him you were my beautiful interior designer from NC. Now if we could only move back there to the mountains and you could work your magic on a mountain house for us!

    2. What fun that would be. I am having trouble with following by email. The little "prove you aren't a robot" thing doesn't show for me. Anyway, I'm still friends with the other blog so I come in that way. Back door?

    1. He does look the most laid-back (is that a bad joke or what?) of any of the guys, doesn't he, Tam? Kind of Johnny Deppish? He's reserved for you then!

      And notice I added a pic of guess who's Halloween card to the post? From the president of my Fang Club! Right there by Nora and CC's stinky feet trick or treat card!

      And can you see what time I'm writing this reply to your sweet comment? Yep, another night of not getting back to sleep after a trip to the you know where. But it's a great time to blog visit as there are no crowds!

  20. So funny! I'll be dateless, except for my loving dog who leaps for any sort of knock on the door!

    Happy Halloween!

    1. And a good dog is the best date ever! Wait a minute, you have two darling dogs, Jane...now I remember, one of them hides in the bedroom during trick or treat time, right?

      Happy Halloween to you!

  25. My dear matchmaking mon ami,

    Thanks so much for the offer, but I'd rather go solo, and besides, I'm soooooooooo late for the party, anyway!

    How adorably artistic is that apparition in the night and those mousey bats in flight!!! I'm sure their creators had a fun Halloween!

    xoxo
