24. Matybe because of other common interests?

I have a couple that are friends even though I despise their politics. They are Tea Party types and supported Trump. The wife bought a horse from me 35 years ago and while we had lost contact for decades we got back in touch because we both do needlework and are in the same needlework group. The husband is a very talented woodworker and has restored antiques for me - he's also a horse person.

Since late 2015 - when the wife asked me what I thought of Trump and I told her in detail with facts and references - we have not discussed politics at all. Not one peep. It's just not worth getting into the morass. There are too few people in this town that are into similar subjects that I have contact with.
