...and here's the dear lady herself who says, 'Thank You, Abby Sale!' And I thought we had decided not to do these birthday threads anymore-although I suppose it IS rather an accomplishment to reach this age!!!

Heya, Abby. I thought that might be the reason for the "extra, Special!" We've got a birthday thread going for Jean, down in the BS section. I am glad you've got this one above the line. I think the other one belongs up here, too!

Thanks for the links and info!

Happy, indeed, that the Dear Lady is here!

Mary (qv) was merely Queen of Scots (and in a small way, of France)

The Queen of all folkdom was also born on this day
to the singing Ritchie family of Viper, Kentucky.

Jean Ritchie

was born


Now, she reads here and I'm not out to embarrass the lady. But I also just don't have enough superlatives to express my admiration.

Source singer, scholar, teacher, writer, 'Than Hall, collector, traveller, movie actress (at least 3 of them) and Good Person.

I've watched the dopey movie "Next of Kin" four times on television now just waiting for the music-on-the-porch scene and they've cut it each time. And I've still never taken a gun to the television. Maybe next time.

See The Official Jean Ritchie Homepage and/or KET | Mountain Born: The Jean Ritchie Story

A wonderful year to you!
