Happy Halloween and welcome to the final edition of Rod and Rowena’s adventures,
before they return to the closet . . .where all good skeletons belong!
Regular readers know I *heart* Halloween!
Halloween’s appeal for me is its combination of fantasy, treats and spooky fun.
We all can benefit from a little escape these days wherever
we can find it, so thank you indulging me as
I share one last humerus post and silly fun.
As you might have guessed,
Halloween is Rod and Rowena’s favorite holiday too.
They’re indulging in their favorite tipple and champagne. . .
a glass of Veuve Cliquot in celebration!
Veuve Cliquot was founded in 1772,
250 years ago, and coincidentally, the year Rod was born!
Madame Clicquot was a mutual friend of both Rod and Rowena, and introduced
the pair at a tasting of her vintage champagne in 1810. . .
it was love at first sip!
Rowena says the perfect candy to pair with Veuve Cliquot is candy corn,
which she likes to eat by the handful!
Rod looks like he’s already indulged in a few glasses. . .
he can’t hold his drink like he used to
as it seems to go right through him.
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and Rod surprised Rowena
with another rescue dog and companion for Bona Lisa.
Meet Bone-ita. . .
The vet at the shelter couldn’t determine her exact age,
only confirming that she was a senior dog.
Bone-ita and Bona Lisa are enjoying Boo Bar
Pumpkin & Cinnamon Dog Biscuits for Halloween
Sophie sniffed out the dog treats right away and went
to check out the newcomers . . .
Pumpkin & Cinnamon treats smell delicious . . .
she’s hoping Bone-ita and Bona Lisa share!
Lola wasn’t far behind. . .
She’s all about the treats!
They said they prefer to have the bench to themselves. . .
Thank you for indulging my skellie humor and bad puns. . .
Wishing you a rib-tickling and spine-tingling
Halloween with plenty of treats!
And Happy Howl-O-Ween from Sophie and Lola.

I always love to see Rob and Rowena and their growing dog family! Thanks for sharing a ghouling post!
Rod & Rowena….happily ever after! Bone ita will be great company for all the skeletons in the closet for years to come. Cheers!
Oh, Mary, how I do love Rod and Rowena’s adventures! I prefer Sophie and Lola to B and B as your dogs have some meat on their bones and are such cute balls of fluff. Enjoy YOUR day!
The girls are precious in their Howl-a-ween attire! I know the Great Pumpkin will bring them a lot of treats.
From one member of The Black Hat Society to another. Hope you and your skeletal crew have a very Happy Howlleween with lots of tricks and treats.Welcome to the newest pup but you need to fatten her up a bit! More candy corn and kit kats. Kathy.
Loved seeing the girls! And the new pup is lacking some cute fluffy fur.
Always fun to see. Happy Halloween!
Mary, your stories are so much fun to read! Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Mary! Love the Halloween posts, really cute.
Thank you so much for sharing another Rod and Rowena adventure! I share your love of Halloween and hate to say goodbye to your wonderful Halloween posts full of creative ideas! Thank you for the fun!
Happy Halloween, I love the tales of the Skeleton Crew!
Mary, I just about spit out my coffee when I read that Rod couldn’t hold his liquor these days, it seems to go right thru him!! 😂 So much Halloween fun, and Sophie sniffing out the pumpkin dog treats is adorable! Cuteness overload, and I love all your clever puns! I know 4 very excited trick or treaters that will be having fun tonight! I’m always so sad to see October go, and I know you will be sad to put Halloween away until next year. Your I heart Halloween pillow is a great find!! On to November…
Mary, I love your skellies posts! They’re so fun! The girls are fun too! They were trying to see who was getting their treats! I always look forward to your Halloween posts as they are always colorful and make me chuckle. Happy Halloween! Clara❤️
Mary, I always enjoy the adventures of Rod and Rowena. And your humorous rhymes are “to die for”. (All puns intended). I know how very much you love Halloween, so have a great one! And thanks again for all the neat prizes I received in your Halloween give away.
Halloween is such a fun holiday!
Mary, you have outdone yourself with Rod, Rowena, Bona Lisa and the new Bone ita. Love your sense of humor. The puns never cease. The flutes are lovely as well as the bubbly. A cute place for the skelly crew to sit and hang out. Happy Halloween.
Your story line here just cracked me up!
Love the Skeleton Crew stories! Happy Halloween!
Rod doesn’t look a day over 100, honestly! Wishing you and all your family members a very happy Halloween filled with only treats! 👻🎃💀
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃
Adorable Mary, and I love your puns with your dear ole’ friends. So glad they will have extra company in the closet until they return next year. They lead an exciting life during their one time of the season they visit you. Boat trips, picnics and tables for two make for entertaining your visitors such fun. The excitement here in Florida tonight will be the annual trunk & treat held in our church parking lot that attracts over 700 little kiddos. They seldom go door to door these days; do you have many at your house to visit Rod and Rowena?
AS Jenna said…on to November!
Kari @ Me and my Captain
Thanks for tickling my bunny fone once again! Get it….he he. The best to you and your family this Halloween!
What’s a Halloween without a few puns? As always, your Halloween decorations and descriptions made me giggle. Best wishes to your and your family.
Mary, your Rod and Rowena antics are so much fun! These posts always make my day!! Hate to see that Rod, Rowena, Bona Lisa and Bone-ita have to return to the closet!! But ALL of your posts are so much fun and so s inspiring that I can’t wait for the next post!
You always know JUST how to make Halloween FUN! I am sure Bona Lisa was so happy to have a sibling! Looks like fun for all. Happy Halloween, Mary!!
So glad that Rod and Rowena got out for one last adventure and love all the puns! Congratulations on the newest family member and Happy Howl-o-ween to you Mary!
Thanks for the chuckles, perfect night cap for me 😁
Mary, you crack me up with your humor 🤣 I love the fun you have with Rod, Rowena and Bona Lisa. So happy Bona Lisa has a sibling now. The girls are too cute. You would have loved the parade we saw tonight, I thought of you! Have a wonderful week!
SO. MUCH. FUN!! Your posts are ALWAYS a treat to read! Thank you! 💀🧡🖤💀🥂👏
Howl-o-ween cheers to you and your skeleton crew, Mary! I love your humor and the new addition to the family. I’m glad that Lola and Sophie could enjoy those treats. 🎃
Thank you for the Halloween fun you bring to your readers’ lives. Rod and Rowena and their pups are just great! You’re right…a little diversion in our crazy world is needed. Will look forward to continuing adventures next Halloween!
