Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig(Can you name the movie the title appears in?) Well, Sedona was about as close to a Bacchanalia as you can get without actually having a room full of naked people. It did have, however, the following: 1. Lots of dancing 2. Lots of alcohol 3. Hiking through ancient cliff dwellings 4. Gambling 5. Other unmentionable stuff I will make a quick note: while on our way to see "Montezuma's Castle," an ancient cliff dwelling outside of Sedona, we discovered there--nestled like a perfect blue egg in the nest of the desert--a Native American gambling establishment known as a *casino*. My radar went up. Gayle was kind enough to put an unscheduled stop in our schedule. I went in, and lo and behold they had Texas Hold 'em going on! I sat down, and in 90 minutes made $80 at a $3/$6 table. Not bad. For those of you in-the-know, I got pocket aces THREE TIMES in the space of 90 minutes. And every single time I was raised before the flop. Each time I re-raised, and poured it on, winning each time. Ah, life is good. And Sedona is now on my "favorite places" list.
