Ode to All My Children

Well, it’s really here. The last episode of All My Children will be Friday, September 23. Sure there were the occasional story line problems, ultra politically correct episodes, and unrealistic situations; but it provided a great escape for 60 minutes.  I plan to enjoy it with a Diet Coke, box of Cheese Its, and a box of tissue.

Good-bye my pal, All My Children.

So long laughs, loves, and all that sin.

Good-bye Erica, Dixie, Crystal and Tad.

Jake, Jackson – it’s makes me so sad.

Adios Opal, Ryan and selfish Greenlee,

Kendall, Zack, Jessie, and blind Angie.

You saw me through pregnancies and two babies-

I felt so normal next to all your crazies.

Running on the treadmill wasn’t a chore.

With you in the video player, I just wanted more.

I’ve watched you some 30 of your 41 years.

You made me laugh and even shed some tears.

I still remember Uncle Palmer and Aunt Phoebe.

I hope you find Babe and Angie will see.

The affairs, evil twins, dead come back to life-

Will Erica ever again be Jackson’s wife?

I heard we might soon become online friends-

But I’m hoping All My Children will rise once again!

  1. Aren’t they going on the web??? Seriously, I read about that possibility. Anyway, sorry about your loss. I’m a Days fan myself…thanks to Mittie, Allyson, and Kelley. 🙂 We would love to have a new viewer…if you are interested.

  2. Glad to stumble on your post. I enjoyed it. When I became a foster care then adoptive mom, All My Children made me laugh. I loved the high-camp, the at times brilliant acting, a number of the wildly twisting yet so true storylines. Yes, I’m sad to see all those characters go, even though I haven’t watched in years.

  3. Cool! I adore Stuart and his brother Adam, their award winning actor, David Hoyt Canary, had me fooled for sometime. I believed he was really a set of twins. I loved watching that great actor.
