One hundred words …

for Friday Fictioneers


17-7My blog is Seventeen Years Old today! But judging by what you are about to read, it still hasn’t grown up!




Adam and Eve were baffled by the rising and setting sun. It came up one on one side of the garden, then went down on another. How did that happen?

They decided to sit and watch the sky for twenty-four hours, but it didn’t help so they called it a day.

Eve was watching the sunrise one morning when it dawned on her. She held an apple in each hand and moved them around each other, then suddenly it made sense!

Years later when Adam died, Eve went into mourning, but she had her sons to remind her of him.

    Happy 17th to your blog. I guess when you play with the tree of knowledge, well, anyway, she should have kept at it so we wouldn’t have to wait for Galileo and Newton…

      Hi Keith good evening from an old retired and tired but happy lawyer living in Exmouth in Devon….Congratulations on your blog especially the amazing information on your father Denis Hillman who was an utterly amazing man own father made miniature furniture in his later years but nothing remotely resembling the quality of yours so tothe purpose of my contact…I have a large oil painting which I believe to be by your father of a golf course in surrey or sussex but which is so indicative of the miniaturisation your dad was blessed with creating dated 1968 which is exactly the time he had just been made redundant and was considering what to do next and Im reliably informed considered painting although was put off this by a friend and the rest is history as we all know but I think the picture I have was basically a one off he painted showing his passion for miniatures and the detail is incredible. …But I cannot be certain so please get in touch and lets talk further…kindest regards John my email address is

    That’s where it all began! Eve has shown an example of how the world revolves around women, don’t tell them I know.

      You don’t need to tell me that, James! It was where it began, but how the brothers produced the next generation has always confused me since there were no girls around!

    Seventeen years! You may be the granddaddy of us all 🙂 I didn’t even know what a blog was 17 years ago!

    And, as usual, your story made me smile. I think I’ll call it a day.

    Love it. Eve seems to have been rather bright. A shining light during humankinds dawn. If only her sons had been as enlightened. And congrats on the seventeen. What will your blog do next year, move out?
