it was always one of my favorite childhood songs, before i knew about the double entendre. ;) we saw a mountain in hawaii the locals say is the inspiration for the song. and then we were lucky enough to see peter, paul, and mary in concert in new orleans the year before katrina. and we saw ray charles that same weekend. great memories i have of mary.
Sad day!But her beautiful voice will live on.-M
I'm so glad that you paid tribute to that wonderful woman. I was so sad to see that she had passed away, but I will always remember her music as an important part of the 60's and 70's . . . and every era since, really. I think of so many nights around the campfire singing Peter, Paul, and Mary songs. Puff will always be my favorite. I get in a lump in my throat just typing this.xo Gigi
I had not heard the sad news about Mary. Your lovely tribute broke it to me gently. Marjorie
Indiana University's former president also died on this day. Driving through this state, they of course covered his passing first. And, oh by the way...here's another passing. I almost went off the road. She was the patron saint that put so many in front of the microphone after her. Thanks for a warm tribute.EFH
