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!

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.
I am hoping, but it won’t be the same. Days….hum….is that guy with the eye patch still on the show?
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.
Thanks for stopping by! AMC has had some of the old favorite characters stop by each day this week; and believe it or not …Stuart is alive! 🙂
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.
