As Wendy got out of her car the next day, she sauntered toward the nursery, but stopped and observed the outside…it still amazed her. The ivy and the name above it welcomed everyone. Once inside she checked around the nursery to be sure plants set down where they didn’t belong were returned to their rightful places. People meant well, but in a hurry, those who carried a plant around and decided against buying it, often set it down wherever they happened to be. It elated Wendy there always seemed to be so many visitors.
Later in the day, Cindy called Wendy with very unexpected news.
“In two weeks, Brad is taking a weekend away from Hoffman’s and he’s singing in Palm Springs at the Desert Lake Inn…so outta sight. Do you want to go with me? We could share a room?”
“That’s great. I want to go but what if Marty wants to come. I’ll have to check. I think it will be really cool to see Brad perform somewhere else. Are you going with Brad?”
“Yeah, sure.” Cindy kidded.
“What if he says no, I’d feel uncomfortable being there. Maybe he’s taking someone already.”
“You won’t know if you don’t ask.”
“Yeah, but I don’t know…well, I’m going in any case, but let me know what you decide.”
“As soon as I talk to Marty. What a great escape.”
She called Marty at work. “Brad is playing at a hotel in Palm Springs in two weeks, Friday and Saturday, do you want to go?”
“I’m sorry. I wish I could but there are several meetings with some out of town brass in two weeks and I’m sure it will include the weekend. I must leave the dates open. If anything changes, I’d love to get away with you.”
“I understand, I’ll go with Cindy.”
“Good. I’m really sorry, I’d change things if I could.”
“I know. I’d better call her, talk to you later.”
They hung up and Wendy called Cindy confirming she would be joining her.
“Outta sight! I decided not to ask Brad about going with me, I’m just not comfortable with asking.”
“I get it.”
