I was finishing up with yesterday's stranger, C.T. But then a striking woman ran up and hugged him and they merrily embraced. Anytime I see a blonde African American woman, I consider her striking. Period. So I said to C.T., “Hey, how about introducing me to your friend!” He said, “Sure, but this one will cost you. Ha ha!”
Brenda turned to me and said that I’d have to hear her sing at The Vineyard, at 8:30. Gulp! The Sarasota Vineyard and Bistro was only a couple of blocks away, and the website is HERE. Brenda Watty is mentioned in the entertainment section.
My mind quickly raced and I realized that there was no way that I could attend that evening. I told Brenda so, and said that I’d try another Saturday night. Then I got a few shots.
As she was about to leave, she looked at me and (assertively) said,
“8:30 on Saturday nights, WHERE?”
“Uh, the Vineyard”
“YEAH, BABY” (fist pump)
