    Calling daytime drama fans!

    You heard it here, still it's my very favorite story. I haven't seen the Johnny Depp movie yet, but I know I'll love it, although not as much as the old black and white version with the crummy camera work. I watch it in reruns on YouTube here in Romania sometimes and it's nostalgia brings back memories of how dialogue and acting whether good, bad or ultra awful were always something nice to come home to. Later, as soon as they began, I started watching All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. For the past 40 plus years on tape in real time or whatever. So sad that two of them were cancelled-horrors! By the way, my favorite storylines were the tornado week on All My Children and then all the other disasters which stemmed from it, the death of Megan from Lupus, and her love story with Jake, and last but not least, General Hospital, of course, I had a wedding party for Luke and Laura in '79 at my house with all the girls, but, it's the story of Bobby's little daughter's death and subsequent heart transplant for Maxie which was the most heartbreaking hour on daytime tv. As you see heartache and all that jazz are the middle names of the soap opera folk and their fans. So don't take them away...they are the stuff that our "other" lives are made of!
