A Nova Scotian/Canadian singing legend passed away this week.
Rita MacNeil (click) worked against the odds and became one of this
country's most popular folk and country singer/songwriters.
Ron and I saw her before the fame back in the late 1970's
singing in a bar in Halifax. A couple of years ago
we had 'tea' at her Tea House in Cape Breton.
She was greeting everybody from 'her' table in the cafe.
We were impressed with her
mild and gentle manner....one that she carried with her
for the remaining of her life.
She will be missed by many.
Enjoy and have a great Sunday.
