  7. Mary SF says:

    Well I am glad they made it to their 50th. I hope they make it as fun filled and full of history to honor the show as it deserves. My wish for the 50th– someone will finally tell us whether Carrie had a boy or a girl. She left town with Austin pregnant and not a word since. Of course they could SORAS that child and have them show up as the new troubled teen this summer LOL.

    What is the estimated shelf-life of a soap such as DAYS of our Lives? Will it be on forever or if ABC’s General Hospital dies, we may see characters such as Shawn and Belle Brady return to Salem. How will a show such as DAYS fit a half-century of history into its upcoming DAY of DAYS event at Universal Studios Citywalk?

    I am hoping to hear what plans they might have in store like GH did which was an amazing year long ride. Truthfully I wondered if Days was going to make it more than a few times. I saw a post about Rory’s mom, I missed that episode. I usually don’t miss them. I really liked the wife of the slain officer, can’t recall her name but she has been on other shows. I loved her acting. Hate when I forget stuff like that. Aging really does affect brains, least it is mine. I remember the first time I watched Days. I had one of those stomach flus in summer of 67, that’s no typo folks. I was watching a scene with Bill Horton, think he was being held prisoner or was in jail but I recall it. I was only 11. Funny the stuff that does stick.
