I've lived here for about 6 months. Every day I come home from work in the afternoon. Ed is on the lanai smoking and drinking and often on the phone. I give him the old pistol greeting and he returns with a "hey chief." He usually hasn't unlocked the door and so I have to borrow his keys to get in.
Once a week or so I'll hang outside while my laundry is finishing or I'm waiting for a ride, we'll have a somewhat one sided conversation. We're not friends, but we get along alright.
Two weeks ago Ed asked me what my name is.
