The lady across the street is Greek, but nice.

The young mother three doors down is not very outgoing. She hasn’t spoken to the Weinsteins once. But if she’s our friend, that’s O.K.

That green house used to have lots of beautiful trees in front until Indians moved in.

The Weinsteins spent a lot of money on their microwave.

We shouldn’t use the central air before giving the attic fan a try. We’ll be surprised.

Our house has always been owned by Jews.

The homes down the block tend to be mixed.

The sliding glass door in the den can be opened by using two hands and pushing.

Eunice Weinstein is glad that someone will finally be allowed to kill all the spiders in the house.

You Were Walking a Golden Retriever Crossing SE corner of 47th and 9th (Midtown West) You’re such a fast walker. I watch you every day from my apartment. Around 11:00 a.m. you walk your golden retriever by my window and your hair is always wet from the shower. Or do you take baths? No matter. Your dog is fat and well fed. I like that, someone who cares for animals. I don’t have any animals.
