HAPPY and SAFE Halloween.
As this month of October has morphed from the hot days of an early October to these cooler nights and days of late October, Halloween is fast approaching. Only a little over a week until that magic afternoon and evening, where the candy, and other treats, are free for the asking. Most youngsters receive enough "Treats" to last for a month of so and sometimes until Christmas. Ah, I did not want to say that word or think about that wonderful Holiday until after Thanksgiving. So for now, enjoy the Halloween and Fall decorations and continue to anticipate a great Halloween. To me, the Fall Decorations and the Halloween Decorations are becoming more elaborate as each year passes. Occasionally, one can find a string of two of Halloween lights. I have not gone to that level, for now, but I have, with help, gotten out a nice Halloween display. Hope you enjoy if you happen to pass by. Maybe I will be able to view your Fall and/or Halloween set up.
So enjoy this month, in what I call the start of the Holiday Season and look forward to the other major holidays in the months to come.

Start Of "Rockport Days" Pictures.
On September 17, 2016 at 10:00 am, the Rockport Days annual event was in its' second day of community activity. On the sixteenth of September, at daylight, the Rockport Community Yard Sale kicked off the "Rockport Days 2016" event. For most of the Friday morning, there was a constant flow of buyers and lookers to keep the venders busy and anxious to return next year.
On Saturday, the Community Center Building was open and the small kitchen was used to prepare food and drinks for the visitors throughout the day. The shelter and porch area was a gathering and meeting place for area residents and "Out of Towners" to meet and mingle. That area stayed crowded all day long.
The children and the young at heart had the full run of the playground and there was a constant flow of activity over the entire playground with the "Monkey Bars" gathering the most participants. The ball field was a staging area for the "Antique Car Show" as well as a staging area for the parade units. The main event event of the day was a parade that started in the mid-afternoon.
Plans are already underway for the next year's event and it is developing with the hope and intent of it being bigger and better than this year's event. Will try to keep you updated on the plans for "Rockport Days" 2017. Hope to see you there.
End of year Holiday Months are here. Enjoy..
