Grab a couple of cold beers or a bottle of scotch and knock on his door. I would start off with a greeting to let him know you miss the conversations and want to take an opportunity to catchup.

The best thing to do is go over and ask him to snowblow out your driveway because you are going to Florida for the Winter.

You just never know. Our family has a saying: "movies in your head". Meaning, it's amazing where your mind will take you trying to
figure something out, whether that is someone's behavior or whatever events are unfolding before you. You are writing the screenplay and editing
the movie in your head as you go. That "movie in your head" can take you in all directions and many times not even close to what is actually occurring. Save yourself a lot of mental anguish and continue to be the good neighbor that you know you are. Movies in your head, coming to a situation in your life soon. Don't forget the popcorn!

I agree with the majority. Next time you see him simply ask him if everything is OK.

I recall the joke about the senior citizen who's wife was nagging him something fierce.. He was just sitting there letting her go on and on and on and on and on.. Well there was a 3rd party in the room who said something to him.. He put his hand to his ear, did something and said: "Could you repeat that, i had my hearing aid off"

It may be he just flat did not hear you.. Lots of 60 year olds who spent too much time listening to rock and roll bands at 100+ db when kids don't hear so good now days.

Maybe he thinks he offended you

But has he ever ? Not once, this summer.
Maybe he thinks he offended you with the crack about property values and that is why you stopped talking to him.

Based on what you said he sounds shy since he loves to talk but doesn't initiate the conversation. He may also be lonely and worry that he is boring you or talking your ear off when you want to be doing something else like working on your yard or motorhome. He may have had a family member or friend tell him he talks too much. You just never know.

If he is friendly to talk to and you enjoy the company then go ahead and be the initiator. There are way worse neighbors out there so you should count yourself very lucky.
