I was just a child and would be with my Grandmother in the afternoons since my mom worked. We lived on a farm so the early morning was spent working the fields and then from noon to about 2 or 3 PM, we would come inside to wait out the heat of the day and Granny would watch her stories as she called them. The Doctors, then that brand new soap called Days of Our LIves and then another one that I can’t remember, maybe As the world turns or some such.

I have been with the Horton Clan since day one. I’m 52 now. The last several years with all the problems with the Powers that Be make me sad. It seems sometimes like they are deliberately trying to kill this program.

Things that made a real impression on me over the years: Hanging of the Horton Family ornaments, the "death" of Roman when he went over the cliff, Eve who was Shane’s kid and was working to break up he and Kim, and anything that Alice Horton ever said! Loved the Bo and Hope story, Patch and Kayla, Doc and John, Maggie and Micky (remember when Maggie couldn’t walk and Micky had amnesia?) and so many more. Loved Vivian but didn’t like the whole "new" Bo and Carly stories; however was pleased that it was a different actor playing Bo since it made it easier to not see him as the "real’ Bo.

My goodness so many memories and all from a single TV show. LOL
