    'As the World Turns' matriarch Wagner dies at 91"

    Actress Helen Wagner, who played mild-mannered Nancy Hughes on the CBS soap opera "As the World Turns" for more than a half-century has died.

    She held the Guinness World Record for playing the same role on television for the longest amount of time, 54 years.

    I remember my great aunt watching that show when I was a kid. After lunch, she would go into the den & turn on the tv to she her "show."

    In the article it mentions that show being interrupted for the breaking news that JFK had been shot. Every documentary I have seen about the assassination shows that clip.

    She lived a long life and was a good actress on the show.

    May she RIP.

    So sad! She was just on the show a couple of weeks ago when Bob and Kim renewed their vows. Such a great lady.

    I'm sure the ATWT family will miss her greatly.

    This news is so sad. I loved her and her character.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and everyone at As the World Turns.
    They have lost a great lady!

    as the world turns, slowly

    Back in the day, this soap and others were only 15 minutes long each day. This is how things went down:

    Monday:
    Nancy to Chris-"Did you hear Bob's news?"

    Tuesday:
    Chris to Nancy-"No, dear, I didn't."

    Wednesday:
    Nancy-"He's met a girl."

    Thursday:
    Chris-"What! You don't say!"

    Friday:
    Nancy-"Yes, and I think it may be...."

    Monday:
    Nancy_ "...serious."

    Tuesday:
    (enter Bob) Chris-"Hello, son."

    Wednesday:
    Bob-"Hello, Dad."

    Thursday:
    Nancy-"Bob, dear! Is it..."

    Friday:
    Nancy-"...true?"

    Monday:
    Bob-"Whatever do you mean, Mother?"

    Tuesday:
    Nancy-"Oh, Bob, you know what I mean."

    Wednesday:
    Chris-"Oh, fer pity sake, Nancy, get to the..."

    Thursday:
    Chris-"...point!"

    Friday:
    Bob-"What's for dinner?"
