Much thanks to Bonnie too for her AMC memories. Just going back down memory lane gives us laughs, chuckles and smiles. To see how Tad's character has grown and changed so much over the years gives us hope for him in the future. Tad the Cad was on of my favorite Valley people. His closeness with Grandma Kate was wonderful too.

How about Brooke in the early years? Talk about a wild thang! Who'd have thought she'd change so much?

Thanks LInda! No I wasn't disapoointed! I knew you'd do well and thanks so much forf sharing your memories. I've been thinking of my friend Doris today who called AMC"All My Young'uns. She loved the show too and we'd hurry from lunch to see AMC before our final classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. She'd be both mad and sad to see AMC and OLTL canceled. Linda's thread made me think of her and she'd definitely have her cmments on here. Thanks again Linda emoticon

Thanks Bonnie! I love going down "memory lane" of our Tad the cad! I think your right about Tad going after Adam's women... hee hee. I have to ask / say... I found it interesting to read Palmer pushed Dixie to Marry Adam over Tad?!! I know Tad was a wild man / Tad the cad and all, but didn't Adam and Palmer not like each other like Brooke & Erica?!!? I didn't realize Palmer wanted her with ADAM over Tad. I would think Palmer would of tried to make sure Dixie was with either... hee hee.

Thanks again Bonnie, very fun to read!!! emoticon

Hi Valliets
for the second installment of My AMC memories. I'm a day early due to working all day tomorrow
TAD
I started watching AMC in 1970. If I forget names and/or get things out of order forgive me.

Tad came to the valley as a child. Joe found him left in a park with a broken arm. Searching for parents brings Tad's father Ray Gardner back to town. Ray kidnapps Tad from the Martin's, but is captured by Dywite Fry, Jessies uncle and Police Chief (could this position be inhearited?), and is sent to Statesville prision. Tad is returned to the Martains.
While in Statesville Ray escapes a-la Clint Eastwood in "Escape from Alcraze". He comes back to Pine Valley to blow up the Martains for "stealing" his son. Only he succeeds in blowing himself up in the Martain's front yard. Ruth and Joe adopt Tad. When Ruth becomes pregnet Tad runs away thinking they won't love him anymore, but Joe finds him and brings him home
Opal and Jenny return and Tad has to come to terms with Opal leaving him and which family he wants to be with.
Now a teen Tad discovers girls. Playing Romeo in a school play he gropes his girlfriend, who is playing Juliet during the death scean. The there was the Liza, Marion, Tad trinangle.
After high school Tad meets Dixie. Palmer pushes her to Adam, because Tad is of the working class. After Junior and Adam locks Dixie up at Oak Heaven, Tad fees her. They wish on a star, eat chicken fingers and they fall in love. Tad helps Dixie and Junior run away from Adam.
Now a PI Tad gets into a fight with local pimp Billy Clyde Tuggle on a bridge. The bridge blows up, Billy's body is found but not Tad's
Years later-real time, Tad is in Napa Valley with ameasia going by the name Ted. He is "adopted" by an elderly lady wine grower. She dies leaving Tad/Ted her fortune. Tad/Ted is drawn back to Pine Valley and he doesn't understand why everyone keeps calling him Tad. A bump on the head brings back his memory. He and Dixie marry. He has an affair with Brooke producing Jammey. He and Dixie divorce but get back together and Junior and Jamey are raised as brothers.
Dixie had an affair with Dr David leading to a Tad and Dixie divorce and Dixie runs a way but comes back years later and she and Tad re marry. Becoming pregnet Dixie runs away because Tad is worried about how the pregency will effect her heart condition and pretends to be dead. The baby is taken away from her and Dixie returns to the Valley. Just as she and Tad are getting back together she is "killed" by Zack's father. (No wonder Jr is a mess) Tad spends the next 3 years looking for baby Katie (Cathy)
He now falls in love with Crystle who is married to Adam. After a one night stand she is pregent but passes the baby off as Adam's until he finds out and leaves her. But she marries Tad. After she has an affair with Dr David she and Tad divorce but they remain friends


Something I noticed is Tad goes after Adam's women, and Doom goes after Tad's women

Thank you, thank you. I also forgot about the shooting, but always loved Jennie.

I think Angie and Jesse aged so well.

Thanks Mom! emoticon
I always liked Jesse and Angie too! Like I said before, Angie was one of my first memories! I liked reading what you wrote because I didn't watch back then... too little. I was thinking how you and dad always watched the show and then I got into it. Even my husband and I would watch it together sometimes. He won't admit it, but he checks in here and there still to see what is going one in PV. I didn't have girls, to maybe watch the show, but always thought maybe my son's girlfriends or something like that. Now, not going to happen. This is the end. Memere watched it, you and dad watched it, and I watched it... hay, even my cubs saw little bits here and there. They liked to pick which girl was pretty. My oldest liked Greenlee and my youngest liked Kendall. Anyways, that's for teaching me more about the Hubbards. I enjoyed reading it!

This brough back some great memories. Thanks so much. It made me think back to when Jesse ran away to NYC with Tads sister Jennie and how kind he was to her. That was a great summer for this show.

Hi Renee

I hope I don't disappoint you with this thread. I wasn't exactly sure what you were looking for and since I was picked as the first one and I am not feeling the greatest please forgive me if you don't enjoy this and it's not what you were hoping for.

My favorite memories from AMC is the early memories of Angie and Jesse. Angie was always a very kind and compassionate individual, and at first Jesse, who came from the wrong side of the tracks, took her as just being arrogance, eventually their animosity gave way to one of Pine Valley's great love stories I remember one scene where Jesse and Angie were in the car and having a discussion about Dr. and Mrs Grant who had taken jesse in so he wouldn't end up in the detention center Angie was trying to tell jesse what good people the Grants were and jesse would have no part of the discussion and kept telling her that she didn't know what she was talking about.Angie kept trying to reason with him and he said she wasn't very smart so he told him that she was smart enough to know that she wanted Jesse to stop the car so she could get out and walk the rest of the way so he did and left her there to walk the rest of the way home. that was how thick skulked Jesse was at the beginning. Angie was the one that taught him how to be a real human being.

Turns out it didn't take long before jesse and angie fell madly in love and against her fathers wishes she ended up getting pregnant with Jesse's baby, she gave the baby up for adoption because she thought jesse was in love with someone else. jesse then told her he loved her so they kidnapped their baby back and ended up getting custody of their baby.Jesse and Angie were happy and got married,

But happiness never lasts in the world of soaps. and it didn't for Jesse and Angie Jesse was on a case. He had to find "Mr. Big" the leader of a drug ring. It turned out that it was Les Baxter, Angie's father. Les pulled a gun on Jesse, and Jesse responded and killed him. Angie was furious that Jesse had killed her father. They ended up reconciling, but something terrible happened. Jesse was shot in the back in the line of duty. Angie was heartbroken


Jesse and Angie's love went through so much including Angie believing Jesse as dead and his showing up 20 years later at the train station where she happened to be also. I cried at that episode. Imagine meeting up with someone you thought was dead for 20 years? I would have wet my pants right there, I mean really!!

and then after getting your man back and you think life is good, all of a sudden his daughter shows up at your door and you find out that he had another life with another woman. Another one of those wet pants scenes. But Angie being the sweetheart that she was, took in this woman who ended up having a brain tumor and Angie cared for her.

Their love had many ups and downs but I liked how they always worked through the problems and held onto their love. I always enjoyed all the scenes that had them.

Those are some of my favorite memories that I will remember and I know that both of these actors will go far in their career. Debbie Morgan has already proved what she is capable but I will really miss Jesse and Angie Hubbard.

No body ever promised us a tomorrow.

Hate is a very strong word.

Think before we use it

Hugs DanLin

Have a wonderful day!!!!
