I caught the flu right in the middle of last month’s snow storm. I was
standing in my living room staring out the picture window at the snow piling
up on my driveway and sidewalk when the first sneeze struck. Within two
hours I was shivering underneath two quilts on my couch. And that’s pretty
much where I stayed for almost seven days. During that time it snowed twice
more. Eventually I felt good enough to open my front door. Much to my
amazement, somebody had shoveled BOTH my driveway AND sidewalk. And they did
so very quietly. To whoever it was who performed this mission of mercy,
thanks from the bottom of my heart! Please give me a call so we can discuss
mulching the back yard.

Rich’s Note:   I’m disillusioned. I mentioned last week that in the December
issue of Better Homes and Gardens, The Man Next Door had announced his
retirement. I said that Burton Hillis had been an unconscious inspiration
for my series of Rich’s Notes in Recipe du Jour. What I didn’t say was that
the Hillis column had declined somewhat (in my opinion) in recent years. I
also didn’t mention that his last column seemed rather lame: his wife had a
job that would keep her on the road a lot, so Hillis was going to stay home.
But I figured the guy had been doing his column so long he was probably just
tired. I know the feeling. At any rate, I emailed BH and G to request a
means of sending Mr. Hillis a copy of my Note. In the same email I expressed
an interest in my taking over the column in their magazine. Yes, I have a
lot of nerve. Following is their, unedited, response.

Thanks for you e-mail and interest in the Man Next Door column. The column
ran in BH&G for more than 40 years so the same person has not been writing
it all these years. In fact, Burton never really existed as a single person,
rather in the hearts of two retired newspapermen who wrote the column under
that pen name. After one of the men died late last year and we are entering
a new millenium, the editors and I decided that it would be a good time to
make a change.
The plan now is to run cartoons?a feature that our readers love. We don't
have any plans to replace "Burton." If that changes, I can contact you, but
I really don't see that happening?at least not for the near future.
Hope that helps.
All the best,
Martha Miller
BHG Health Editor”

I don’t know about you, but I feel cheated. I’m not sore about not being
considered to replace “Hillis,” and I probably just ruined any chance I
might have had to do so, but he didn’t even really exist. No, wait, I take
that back. Burton Hillis DID exist because I believed in him. Okay, he may
have been different people over the years. He may have not had his perpetual
friends and interesting characters. The quotes he gave us may have been
recycled from other sources. But that doesn’t make him any less real. I’ll
put aside the disillusionment and pretend that Hillis was real. I guess, in
the end, it doesn’t matter; because we were entertained and we had a friend
whose observations on life arrived in our mailboxes every month for years
and years. By the way, I’m real. I’m 49-years-old. I have a wife named
Susan, a son named Luke, and a daughter named Molly. I have two very good
friends in Tim and Walt, who are also real people. I intend to grow old with
you and them. I hope you stick around. I kind of like being your guy next

Do you remember?

Barbra Streisand
Written by B.Merrill-J.Styne

People who need people,
Are the luckiest people in the world
We're children, needing other children
And yet letting a grown-up pride
Hide all the need inside
Acting more like children than children
Lovers are very special people
They're the luckiest people in the world
With one person one very special person
A feeling deep in your soul
Says you were half now you're whole
No more hunger and thirst
But first be a person who needs people
People who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world
With one person one very special person
No more hunger and thirst
But first be a person who needs people
People who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world...
