When I was 11 years old I was at my grandparents house sleeping over that Summer. We went into the kitchen for lunch. She made lunch and turned on the tv and said watch this it's good she was talking about days of our lives. So I watched and became hooked. I have been watching non stop thanks to vcrs in the past and now DVRs since than. I have the 40 th anniversary picture book of days and I love it.
