Dark Shadows ~ My Birthday

It was 44 years ago (3/21/1968) that my mom went into labor with me while watching her favorite soap opera "Dark Shadows"!!! She didn't go to the hospital until AFTER the show went off, but later that evening I was born ~ Sandra Lynn Collins.

(Ironic too ~ my last name was Collins and Barnabas' last name is Collins ...)

At least now with the DVD collections available, she can relive that moment any time she has the desire to do so! Gigggggles! Even though one never forgets giving birth, I am sure that, at 16 yrs 3 months (exactly) of age when the blessed event occurred, she doesn't wish to relive it often! LOL!

And ... "Mom, if I haven't said it before, I apologize for trying to make my grand appearance during your soap opera! How terribly inconsiderate of me!!"

If I am correct, airing on Thursday, March 21, 1968 was Episode #454 as described below.

 Episode 454
      Worldvision Rerun 242
      Tape Date: March 15, 1968 (ABC #59-DRK-68)
      Air Date:  March 21, 1968 Thursday
      Writer:    Gordon Russell
      Director:  John Sedwick
      ( The prologue mentions that Vicky is nearing the end of her
              journey into the past.)

      (Missed. Earlier sypnosis follows).

A séance has been held in the great house at Collinwood; a séance which has suspended time and space and sent Victoria Winters on an uncertain and frightening journey into the past; back to the year 1795. As she nears the end of that journey, she finds herself a hunted woman. In her place of refuge in the Collins' mausoleum, she will have a strange dream in which she will discover that she has changed the course of history.

Not a pink ribbon ...

"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, 
and not to twist them to fit our own image. 
Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them."

Sheldon Cooper

My friend told me that he thinks the more 'degree' letters he gets after his name, the less his C.S. (common sense) works ~ LOL! I told him I don't have that problem because the MOM after my name equips me me with a doctorate in C.S. and B.S (BullS**t). and so technically, I am MOM, B.S., C.S., B.I.C., Ph.D which makes me almost the same as Sheldon (Big Bang Theory)! giggglesss!
