Leaving on a jet plane~~~

John Denver And I lost a Bet
Leaving On A Jet Plane by Peter, Paul and Mary Album: Album 1700 Date: 1969
"Leaving on a Jet Plane" is a song written by John Denver in 1967 during a layover at an airport in Washington and recorded by the Mitchell Trio that year. The original title of the song was "Oh Babe I Hate To Go" but Denver's then producer, Milt Okun, convinced him to change the title. Others covered the song in 1967, including Spanky & Our Gang and Peter, Paul and Mary on Album 1700. It did not become a hit until Peter, Paul and Mary released it as a single in 1969. It turned out to be their biggest (and final) hit.
Be back in a few

I hope you enjoyed your visit with your daughter and have returned safely. I didn't know John Denver wrote that!! Really enjoyed your previous post on drying your fall bounty. The history of celery is interesting too.
