A WEDDING NIGHT Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, JaSammers!

As promised, this week, we’ll celebrate what came after the long-awaited “I Do’s” for our beloved couple!

I remember their wedding/wedding night week so vividly – the actual episodes, watching and crying together while on the phone with Ro, tweeting and texting all night with Becky  while waiting for the screencaps to be posted…it was as though someone in our family had just tied the knot! *sigh*

The Good Ol’ Days of GH…

It’s why posting these anniversary vids fills the void in my JaSam-loving heart – albeit temporarily – so sweetly.

At Karina’s insistence, I am dividing the Drives into two categories – The Wedding Night, and then, next week, the Happy Honeymoon scenes. Hey, I can never get too much of a celebration when it comes to our couple, so why not?

Let’s take a moment to appreciate The Magic Makers (vidders) who gave us the gift that keeps on giving with their incredibly done “scrapbooks” of our unforgettable JaSam Wedding Night. Where would we be without the memories?

I shudder to even imagine.

In all my years of soap watching, I have never cherished a wedding night more than Jason and Sam’s. They are truly incomparable! ❤

I hope you enjoyed this week’s Drive…Next week, we head to Hawaii!


Much JaSam Love…






An UPLIFTING Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good morning, JaSammers!

It always lifts my spirits to see vidders making new JaSam vids, even if they are using “Dylan” instead of “Jason”, simply because it proves what I’ve always known about us JaSammers: we are die hards, and we don’t just give up!

Thus was the case on my search for vids this week. My spirits were definitely lifted. 🙂

I hope you’ll all take the time to comments on the vids and let the vidders know you appreciate what they do. Without them, this journey would be a lot darker and a lot harder. ❤

Have a great Sunday!


An INSPIRING Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, GHers!

I hope this Sunday morning finds you all well…and comfortable. I know so much of the country is dealing with excessive heat as we are. We are entering Day 8 of a heatwave up here in Jersey…one we were supposed to get relief from yesterday in the form of a line of massive thunderstorms and plenty of moisture to wash away this oppressive heat.

What we ACTUALLY got was thunder and lightning for the past couple of nights, and a 5 minute shower yesterday afternoon, but it wasn’t enough to even wash away the poor, sad drooping blooms on our flowers! I’m hoping with my fingers crossed that overnight we will get something a little more substantial! I think many of us could use a reprieve  from all of this sticky heat!

As for our Drive today, don’t worry – the AC is pumping! However, I think you’ll be happiest to know, as I was, that I was pleasantly surprised over how many of our JaSam vidders seemed to have been INSPIRED again over the past couple of weeks. I know it had to be INSPIRATION from within their JaSam-loving hearts, as we don’t have any coming from our former favorite soap…so it means all the more that our vidders did such beautiful work for all of us to enjoy! The fact that they are INSPIRED to not let go just yet INSPIRES me to do the very same!

Thank you so much to each of you talented, wonderful, generous vidders for sharing this lovely gift with all of us when we need it most! You guys keep the JaSam Love alive, and for that, so many of us are eternally grateful!

Much love to each of you…and to all those willing to take this Drive with me this week!

Let’s go…

Never let go of the Love we found and enjoyed as Team JaSam! It brought us all together and gave us tons of wonderful memories to hold onto! 

Stay cool!


An ECLECTIC Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, GHers!

I apologize profusely for not swinging by to pick you all up last Sunday, but we were traveling to attend Nelson’s niece’s wedding shower, and time just got away from me while preparing. I had every intention of getting up a couple of hours early on Sunday  to get our Drive done, but insomnia won the battle on Saturday night, and when I finally fell asleep, I had only a couple of hours before I had to get going. 😦

Our summers are usually very busy…today I will be running around like a crazy person again, but this time in preparation for Karina’s 21st Birthday celebration! Our baby girl is growing up! *tears*

Let’s get this Drive going…with some of Karina’s favorites playing for us, based on some of the songs I’ve heard playing on her ipod (which I have to listen to) while she and I are laying out by the pool. 🙂 It is quite an eclectic collection, if I do say so myself.

I hope you guys enjoy them!

A TOUCHING Sunday Drive Memory Lane

Good Sunday morning, GHers!

Thanks for all the comments and congrats regarding Matthew’s graduation and achievements! And congrats to all who shared similar wonderful experiences! I love sharing big moments in my life with you guys almost as much as I love hearing about yours! 🙂

You know, this week, I was thinking about how much I miss the old GH Formula…no matter how flawed it was at times, GH always managed to grab me and reel me in…touching my heart when all was said and done. Now…nothing really grabs me. Nothing seems to touch my heart. And nothing seems to keep me.

When we talk about Jason and Sam being The Beauty of GH, that was really their hook: the fact that they managed to reach out and grab us, and they always managed to touch our hearts because of the way they touched each other, both figuratively and literally. I really miss that most. 😦

So, this week, I went in search of vids that show us  that: Just how TOUCHING Jason and Sam’s Love Story always was. I hope it reminds you of the best GH had to offer. I hope it also reminds you that these two were worth every moment we invested; even in spite of the fact that we lost them just as we should have been  enjoying the biggest payout on our investment.

Jason and Sam’s Love Story touched me so deeply, that even knowing what I know now, I wouldn’t have given up the ride they took me on over the nine years they shared. That’s pretty extraordinary, don’t you think? In fact, I think it’s rather TOUCHING. 🙂

Until next time,


A TWISTED Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday morning…though I suspect that by the time I hit “Publish”, it will be good Sunday Afternoon!

As many of you who follow me on Facebook know, it has been an incredibly happy and rewarding week for our family! Our son, Matthew, graduated eighth grade on Wednesday evening, and did so in a big way; earning both scholarships available for writing and math, as well as two Community Service awards. We are extremely proud, and feeling very thankful for the children we have. 🙂

Inasmuch as we had lots to celebrate this week, we had many to celebrate with over our house…until the wee hours of the morning.  Hence the late start today. 🙂

Today’s Drive is gonna take some TWISTS and turns, in honor of their ONCE IN A LIFETIME Love Story, and the fact that no matter what year it was, their Love was undeniably beautiful! I will be taking you all on some pretty sharp twists and turns – from brand new vids to classic vids showing just that. The TWISTED part is also in honor of The TWISTED Sisterhood!

I love them all! ❤

A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…Full of LOVIN’

Good Sunday morning, GHers!

I’m coming by a little later because at some point while blogging last night, I fell asleep. It was much needed as I hadn’t slept very well in days worrying over a speaking engagement I had yesterday. Exhaustion and relief finally helped me get to sleep last night – I’m just sorry I couldn’t finish this post first. But, alas, I am finishing it up now, and I promise you, this week’s Drive is a LOVE FEST!

No other couple has ever done LOVE as believably or as realistically as JaSam for me, and these vids will remind you all of the same thing! It’s Sunday morning, which means we should, for the time we are on our Sunday Drive, forget all about Y&R and former OLTLers, and focus solely on our favorite couple ever.

Let’s not spend our time together lamenting their loss – let’s spend it celebrating that we had them for as long, and as spectacularly, as we did!

Here’s to JaSam Lovin’! (The Best There Ever Was)
