Celebrating Roy with molasses!
Today we celebrated the life of a friend. Roy! And as we did a story was told of Roy seeking a taste of molasses. His great uncle kept a barrel in his store. One day Roy and a cousin when to the store to help themselves to some of the molasses. They removed the plug and had a good taste of the sweet and heavy molasses. But they could not get the plug to hold in place and the molasses was running on the floor. Roy's uncle kept his rubber boots in the store — and they were filled in an attempt to save some of the precious sweet molasses.
