The boarding house was a great place. For wayward outsider characters. In the couple of random episodes. That feature the boarding house. I love the interaction between the characters. With a quirky Ida in a maternal role. I really like Karen and Ed's friendship.
I believe the Wallaces began to reconcile for good at Amy and Brick's wedding. In all their subsequent appearances, they were always seen together.
SB had a real treasure in Dena Dietrich, who played Katie Wallace (Brick's legal mother). She was best known for playing Mother Nature in the Chiffon Margarine commercials in the 1970s.
For me, it's anybody else but wife beater.
I'm used to U.S. tennis media hyping up any players coming along since the days of the Williams Sisters' primes when they promoted any U.S. woman who they thought could beat them. This frenzy is not new to me, been dealing with it for twenty years now.
With the sporadic uncovering's of Classic OLTL episodes from the late 70's and 80's, I am very intrigued with Llanview's local landlady Ina Hopkins and her haven for some of the show's beloved characters.
I know Ina lived/owned the property, but who else lived there?
I know Karen Wolek did, after she broke up with Larry given her secret life turning tricks...
Katrina Karr... Karen's hooker friend lived there, and was Ina's business partner in a local restaurant...
Ed Hall, after his divorce from Carla...
Did Marco Dane when he masqueraded as his twin brother Mario?
Did Herb Callison when he separated from Dorian?
I think Faith Kipling, Johnny Drummond, and Cassie(almost?) As well as Melinda? and Becky Lee?
How was Ina written out of the story? Did she move with Kat to be a live-in babysitter to Kat's daughter Mary?
I wish she, Ina, would have stayed in Llanview throughout the 80's and 90's... I liked the boarding house motif and the surrogate families it created...
