WORDS ON WEDNESDAY
MY STORY , Hackney, London. England 1926.
There were no bright (STARS) to herald my arrival into this world on The Sixteenth day of July 1926, only claps of thunder and lightning and pouring (RAIN) which had disrupted the electric power and darkened the skies now devoid of the customary summer (MOON) (SHADOWS) and an expression of deep concern from my parents and the local midwife struggling in the candle light midst the (SMELL) of (BLOOD) hot water and sweat., Who wondered how they were going to support this new addition to the family on an already overstretched budget.
1926 was not a good year to enter the world. There was much political strife, coupled with industrial strikes, job shortages and a generally undernourished population, very few people escaped the deprivations that continued into the early nineteen thirties. However, I survived to tell the fable of my birthing which took place so many long years ago. .

baili. I was a Friday child, with Far To Go. which was near the truth, Thanks for your comment.
I'm glad you survived to be able to tell us these tales.
My mum was a 1926 baby, but born in Germany so I don't know what day it was, only the date.
A lovely story. And, like River, I am glad you survived to tell the tale.
I recognise the paragraph even if it is not a direct quote. Hackney is super trendy now.
Andrew. But of course you would, but the switch was in order to accommodate the six key words. Thanks for calling.
River. I would appreciate a brief history of your parentage and yourself. Thanks for calling.
Elephants Child. It is so pleasing to know there are people who realise I have some worth. Thank you.
