I've been watching for over 25 years old. My grandmother got me into it, but at first I was resistant because my mom watched All MY Children. I was about 12 and becoming a stubborn teen. Anyway, I went to live with my grandmother and I thought I would turn on All My Children, my grandmother who is very stubborn herself said "too bad, you want to live with me your watching DOOL" I'm glad she did, I would never turn back! She is 86 now and is still very into DOOL and is VERY happy Reilly is gone, she thinks he has sexual issues because everything is so naughty, I love her, she is so funny. However, I think most of us would agree we are glad Reilly is gone. The funny thing is, is that she watches Passions, a soap Reilly is head writer to... She is furious they canceled Another World and replaced it with Passions but she still watches, we all just keep our mouths shut and let her vent. LOL!!!! I love going down memory lane, I hadn't thought about how I started watching Days in years, kind of brings a tear to my eye. I love my grandmother so!!
