Just got a pleasant surprise in the mail. An election bet I had written off

was paid today. A very old friend who now lives in Floriduh had said he wanted to bet Trump would be reelected. This was in response to my FB page where I challenged Trump supporters to wager. Lots of talk but when I narrowed it down to actually paying if they lost no one was willing to have a third party hold the money. Anyhow I was sure this guy would pay. About three weeks before election he went radio silent. Never heard a peep. Before the election his son who lives a few miles from me said his dad was up here before election and he said to him just go pay him now.

Not one word about it on FB or otherwise. Today a check dated 1 6 21 arrives in the mail. I was right twice, he would pay and Biden won. I of course would have sent him a check on 11 4 20 if it went the other way. I had written it off and even said I'd send the money I was prepared to pay, to my local food bank which I did. Pleasant surprise!

4. I don't understand how they can have the truth right in their faces and then trust the next thing

Trump says????? So you think he has really awakened or is ready to fall for the lies again?
