Cindy has posted these prompts on her blog.
I shall use all of these Words.
IT was the year of 1954. Hands up those who remember this.
THE contents of the misery ledger were spilling worldwide, both robbery and murder were becoming more commonplace this being due to to abolition of capital punishment by the many forms of execution, in so called 'non third world countries' the USA being the exception to this idea due to its 2nd amendment and its gun laws getting in the way and still is..
During this year of 54 Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn were at their peak, Heath Ledger and Brian ferry were in short pants. and a new Despot had emerged in Tobruk Libya.
Meanwhile , back in Paris France; a Jewish Lawyer Pierre Mendes France became (the first Post war french prime minister to stay in office for more than six months), he made the decision to withdraw french troops from Indo China.as Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam were known by at the time..
Still in 54, Much married Eddie Fisher wed Debbie Reynolds , whom he cast aside later for the charms of Liz Taylor.
Rolling strikes were becoming the norm in the UK and political stirrer Enoch Powell MP for Smethwick Birmingham Was stirring the bucket by saying "Send the bastards back!! Also my small family , Rosemary Baby Chris and I , Sailed on the SS Dorsetshire from Singapore to the UK.. Prior to all of this happening an earthquake occurred in IRAN on my 28th Birthday.
The final word POOH if it means what I believe it does, I shall consider that, enough has been stirred already.

I like the way you weave the words into historical recounting. Mind you, I am firmly against capital punishment.
This is very well done Les :) I'm still staring at the lists of words with a blank slate uppermost in my mind. in 1954 I was one or two years old, depending on which end of the year it was.
E C. Being born with a functioning noddle and maintaining a journal helps. There are times when I switch my opinion on C P.
River AKA Elsie. I am honoured by your compliment, you charmer.
Unknown or AKA SEDENTARY Sid. A very sterile concoction of words, To quote in terms like gaggle of geese. A bone idleness of prose.
love the flashback in time!
Thank you. Also reading your profile reveals an interesting life.
U K . Stay with F B and Simple like and Not like chatter. its your best form .
Due to your uncomplimentary remarks Off Line you are not welcome here until you apologize.
An interesting use of the words, Vest. Well done, indeed! :)
However, '54 was a bit early for Heath Ledger...he wasn't born until 1979. He'd not yet made an entry into the Ledger ledger at that stage.
If there is not a scrap of doubt...I think capital punishment is what some wastes-of-oxygen and space deserve. Just call me "Cold-Hard-Hearted Hannah"...I don't mine. :)
Lee. Thank you for calling. However, there may have been zillions of Guys with that handle -and in shorties at that time in 54..
I once knew a sailor in the R N named Bogart, Whether or not his given name was Humphrey I am uncertain, but you can be sure it was what he was called.
Oops! Sorry...my intention - re Heath Ledger - wasn't to sound like a smart arse.
Please excuse my typo, too...."mind" instead of "mine", is what I meant to type.
Upon reading your profile in detail...I'm glad I did...because by reading it I was reminded of a book I'd not thought about in years and years...a book I'd read, and enjoyed, when I was a child, many moons ago....R. M. Ballantyne's - "The Coral Island; A Tale of the Pacific Ocean".
Now I must read it again!! No doubt, the local library will have a copy....hopefully.
LEE. It must be years since reading Coral Island. I am reminded of the delicacy favoured by some Pacific tribes who would raid other tribes and carry off the young girls to marry into their own tribe and the young boys they captured were destined to become'Long Pig' on the Barby. KIWI tribes particularly.
