Donna Veale – The Queen of Halloween Decorations

by Karen Ekstrom
I rang Donna’ s doorbell, barely able to contain my glee. Heard the chime echo deep within. I grinned, unable to stop myself, as my imagination ran wild with scary witches, hairy spiders and nasty monsters. Knowing that whatever horrifying delights existed on the other side of the door, would be fabulous. Because… I was at Donna Veale’s house. The Queen of Halloween Decorations. And Halloween was just around the corner.

I leaned in and listened. Heard footsteps coming toward the door. I straightened and tried to look… grown up. Not like a kid overcome with excitement.

After all, I was too old to trick or treat without a grandchild. Too old to screech with delight as a zombie attacked me in the night. And way too old to confess my age to you.

I was certainly too old to get this excited about seeing a house all decorated up for Halloween.

But then again, this was Donna Veale’s house.IMG_3523 IMG_3567IMG_3510 IMG_3515IMG_3513   IMG_3529IMG_3562IMG_3574IMG_3546IMG_3552 IMG_3535  IMG_3532   IMG_3557IMG_3575
