Never knew a Molly. Not good grammar but here is the most famous one.

Just Molly and me
And baby makes three
We're happy in my Blue Heaven

Molly and I would be better grammar but too late to change now.

My gr Niece is Molly just because the parent loved the name, and 6 days ago I became a Gr Gran for the first time with a little Polly, again because they love the name. (Different family)

from ancient times black soot was used to cover faces to make sure their bosses didn't know who they were.

 Actually, I'd thought I'd marked this topic as "closed". I'll try again. Thank you all.
