    We'll miss her. As an early boomer, I recall vividly every one of PPM's songs, I can almost recite the lyrics still. They don't do 'em like that any more.
    Thank you Mary....

    I'm very sorry to hear this. Peter, Paul and Mary were part of my early childhood, with songs like "Leaving on a Jet Plane", "If I Had a Hammer" and "Puff the Magic Dragon" playing alongside Raffi and Fred Penner.
    If you'll excuse me, I think I need to head over to You Tube, catch up with some old memories, ane be a little weepy. =/

    nice choice michael. those of us who did the nam flights favored leaving on a jet plane.then again, raising a handful of kids, going to the zoo was a great song and great idea. hope all is well with you and the family.
