Wow, he looks great. And they dressed him well in that purple and blue suit! Not every guy could pull that look off. Michael Damien is always a favorite, hope he sticks around a while.

I’m still waiting, have not seen him yet. Am I crazy, I’m pretty sure I got Wed. show again on Thurs.?

Well, I’ve seen him, looks every bit his Sixty years old. I guess there are a lot of old rock and rollers still out there, what ever floats your boat I guess.

….I have finally caught up ( somewhat) with soaps, today—small breather—I like Danny— He left the show when I was in Junior High, but he did make appearances here and there—is he staying? Hooking up with Phyllis?
I hope so. She needs an “uplift” after her daughter’s betrayal—Rule number 1–always have your mother’s back, no matter what!!
Aside—Was it the PTB’s plan to give Sally and Adam a “one-nighter”? That was so out-of-the-blue— Gee, Adam kinda backed off pretty quickly considering his undying, unrequited love for Sally!! Hmmm—-Of course, it was contrived.—this will create a maelstrom of problems—we are revisiting “who’s the Daddy”. —-Christian’s bio parents are Sage( defunct) and Adam—-History is repeating itself over and over—Sally is pregnant and here we go again. Happy New Year!!

In a preview for next week (see bel0w), Ashley’s new alter is at a bar with a lot of lipstick, and a southern accent. Who could this be? What will be her name? What does she represent? Stay tuned.

During a recent interview with TV Insider, Davidson shared on tackling Ashley’s DID storyline, “They’re all vastly different from one another. If I walk by the TV, and I happen to be on, I absolutely know who it is just by the way she’s looking”.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner added, “It takes a lot of concentration.”
