You need to understand the meanings of the following expressions in order to understand what the precious woman meant when she told family friends the statement quoted in this post:
Won't-ah-gonna =wasn't going to
nair-nother=not another one
She was intelligent, creative, had a great love for people (and from
Appalachia many years ago). She was generous and sharing.
"I HAD SAID THAT I WON'T-AH-GONNA' MEK NAIR-NOTHER LASSIE
THIS YEAH, BUT BEIN'S AS IT'S YOU-ALL, I RECKON I WILL MEK JUST ONE MO."
I grew up with her molasses on occasion in the morning with hot
biscuits from the oven which our maid Marie made and the melted
butter and molasses.
Just recently, I learned that molasses is rich in sulfur, folks, just
as coffee, tea, and chocolate are. Maybe that's why many of us
have symptoms of depression from using them; I think some of us
have a deficiency of sulfur oxidase which metabolizes sulfur and
enables people not sensitive to sulfur to thrive. A certain amount
of sulfur is desirable because it protects life, but too much for those of us who have an intolerance to it is bad news emotionally.
Just thought you might like to know about sulfur sensitivity and
depression for some. See Foods high in sulfur thiols.com for more information. (I use molybdenum to keep the sulfur level in line,
but still avoid coffee, tea--now--and chocolate generally.)
Have a good weekend, everybody.
P.S. She and her husband sold their farmland in the early 1950's for $4,000,000.00. The land was transformed later into a large shopping center near a metropolis.
