September 23 will be the last episode of All My Children. Although I haven't really watched it in years, I remember growing up with it, watching it because Mom watched it. I remember watching it since before Erika married Tom. I'm guessing that was about 40 years ago. I surely did appreciate AMC as something my mother and I did every day of summer vacation. I appreciated being able to watch it after school when my family lived on an Air Force base in Turkey, and later on , an Air Force base in Germany. It was one of the highlights of my day when I was a housewife, then a new mom. But eventually I joined the millions of women working outside the home, and really didn't have time to watch anymore, except sporadically. Life went on for me, but there will always be a place in my heart for AMC.
