I just have to say this.   Jimmy DiMora got all kinds of money and favors and even hookers and he can't even buy his wife a decent coat.
Look at the pictures.  She is in something from Kmart and he looks like an Italian(no offense) Don.
She has to suffer through the embarassment of her husband's trial and even link arms with him and she has to do it in that coat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's a travesty.  I'm just sayin'.

Farewell to Thee

OMG, I can't believe that One Life to Live is going off the air on Friday.  I watched the show since the first day it was on.  I've talked about them on this very blog....the characters that is.
Vicki(Erika Slezak) and I had our babies at the same time...her real kids not her soap kids.  I cried with them and laughed and got scared even.
Was it ever highbrow?  Not on your life.  It was fun escapism, harmless and engaging.  I couldn't watch during the school year(before VCRs and Tivoing) but I always caught up on my breaks and over the summer.  It wasn't hard to do.
Once I retired, I watched every day....ffing through the commercials.  One Life has always been my favorite of them all.
They tackled social issues and talked about mammograms and DID.  They had paternity test switches and family upheaval.
Oh, I have to reinvent my afternoons now.  I know I'll find something engaging to do but I'll miss all my friends in Llanview, PA.


I have a pet peeve at the stores now.  Everyone who works there always says hello and how are you even if they just pass you by.  Sometimes they even ask you if they can help you find something when you are just browsing.
I am kind of a shy person and I don't want to talk to a bunch of strangers.  Maybe I'm just rude but I really dislike it.  I just want to shop and be done with it.  I'll chat with the person who checks me out no problemo, but not every employee in the store!
Well, guess what just happened to me?  I was browsing through the Disney store on line and suddenly a box popped up and said that a Disney cast member would be happy to help me find what I was looking for. OMG!!  I can't even browse on line now without being interrupted?  My last vestige of peace and quiet while shopping!!
 I'm surprised that it wasn't an animated icon, after all it was Disney.  At least it wouldn't have been a little entertaining and not just annoying.
So, I guess I have to stop shopping..........................oh, sure.  Like that's going to happen.
