Sitting by the window of her convent, Sister Judy opened a letter from home one evening. Inside the letter was a $100 bill her parents had sent. Sister Judy smiled at the gesture.

As she read the letter by the window, she noticed a shabbily dressed stranger leaning against the lamp post below. Quickly, she wrote, "Don't despair. - Sister Judy," on a piece of paper, wrapped the $100 bill in it, got the man's attention and tossed it out the window to him.

The stranger picked it up, and with a puzzled expression and a tip of his hat, went off down the street.

The next day, Sister Judy was told that a man was at her door, insisting on seeing her. She went down, and found the stranger waiting. Without a word, he handed her a huge wad of $100 bills.

"What's this?" she asked. "That's the $8,000 you have coming Sister," he replied. "Don't Despair paid 80-to-1."

Fwiw, the nz trotting cup was won yesterday by a horse called Lazarus, second year in a row. This is a true staying race ran since 1904 over the 2 mile distance of 3200 mtres. We love racing here.
