Spring and summer festivities in our Marvelous Midwestern towns
Ada Day may be over, but summer is almost here, and there's so many fun events.
The Cutoff Shorts contest. It was a very tight, hard race between Jamie Frame and Phillip Spaulding last year, which ended in a tie (and a wrestling match....does someone have the pictures? Asking for a friend)
And the Tri-State fair will also include the perennial favorite - the Eavesdropping Contest! The eavesdropping porch at Luthers Corners is a tough competitor, but Liz Matthews from Bay City is a one-woman team that has SLAYED the competition. She's the one to beat.
As for me, I'm not eavesdropping....I'll be watching Holden in the barn.

Previous thread was here.
NOTE: A warning that our resident loon/troll will be posting here as usual. FF and block, and always ignore posts with excessive mentions of:
- Toilet habits of various actresses
- Fat names of shows, fat actors, fat anything
- Allegedly torrid romances between gay men and their leading ladies
- Lengthy rants about people on another soap message board that none of us give a fuck about, including Vee, who is "in the biz."
Among many other things this demented bitch will post about....so FF, block and enjoy the bliss.

I don't get what this thread is about.

R2 then it's not for you. Thanks for reading!

Did Audrey Peters and Ron Tomme resent the Buas, Gene and Toni, on LOL in the late 60's/early 70's? Eventually they killed Gene off, and Toni was left twisting in the wind. Tess and Bill could have been the future, stable couple.

R2 Well, thanks for visiting here, but you clearly are in the wrong place.
Now I have to get back to eavesdropping. I have a contest to win and a title to defend!!
Just a little while ago, I overheard an intriguing conversation between Mike Kasnoff and Jamie Frame. Seems they're both trying to determine a time and place for an assignation.
Or I should say, ANOTHER assignation. Seems those two want another assignation after the one last week and the one the week before that and the one the week before that . . .

Oh, now this is a sight -- Mrs. Rachel Cory Hutchins is preparing for the Eyes-A-Buggin' Contest. And terrifying every child in a 10-yard radius.

Who's her competition? Who else is in the contest r9?

I’m watching 1979 episodes of Guiding Light.
I remember at the time almost everyone loving Evie. We thought she was so cute and sweet. Man, my opinion has changed 44 years or so later.

I stumbled on this recently. This is some fine soap opera.

r15 I get that it's canon, but I was never able to believe that Jake would have raped Marley.

The way they told the story and the way Tom Eplin played it, I believed it. Which is why I never bought Jake and Vicky as this endgame couple at the end of the series. The only thing that was even more ludicrous was Rachel and Carl.

I hated Jensen's boring ass.
They should have paid Cynthia Watros a king's ransom to stay on as Vicky.

Am I hallucinating, or is the guy with the small dick in this scene none other than Johnny Bauer?
(I always thought he'd have a big one, personally.)

It is James Goodwin, or Jobnny Bauer r19. He was Samantha’s first boyfriend on the show.
He would have made for a good recast Scott Eldridge on ATWT.
Tom Wiggin and Goodwin both should have gone on to another soap or primetime. They are both sexy.

Remember Johnny and Chelsea that insipid song about homelessness? Seems like they sang that almost as much as Oakdale’s Lily sang that Bonnie Raitt cover.

Jamie Goodwin was always sexy - I remember being like "oh, yeah, hot" when we'd be reminded of it if Johnny had his shirt off. But that character was the cure for insomnia, and Chelsea was too.
Fascinating that Kassie DePaiva had more in her - we never really saw it on GL, though I do remember some good work from her when Chelsea and Phillip broke up.
