2. Meeting New Neighbors

A: Hi, I'm Janet. I live next door.

B: Oh, hello Janet. I'm Richard, and this is my wife Wendy.

A: We're going to be living side by side; we should make the best of it.

B: I totally agree.

A: My husband will be home soon. He wants to meet you, too.

B: That would be great. I was hoping to make new friends.

A: Me too. I knew the Thompsons for years. They lived where you do now.

B: How long have you lived here?

A: For 25 years. I love this neighborhood.

B: That sounds perfect to us.
