Dom Perignon In The Most Unexpected Places

My wife and I were out for a walk on Harris Creek Road yesterday.  I saw what looked like a champagne cork, and commented on it to my wife--since this is not a normal thing to find on a road near Horseshoe Bend.  A few feet beyond, we found the bottle: a 1995 Cuvee Dom Perignon, which ordinarily sells for about $150.  (And the bottle was not completely empty, either.)

Now, if you found this in Beverly Glen Canyon above Beverly Hills, or on a Malibu beach, or in Manhattan--well, that would not be a great surprise.  But in the area surrounding Horseshoe Bend?  What next?  Will someone open up a Ferrari dealership there?  Or will Whole Foods decide we need a store?

Or could it be that Horseshoe Bend is going the way of Boise's North End and Sunvalley/Ketchum and becoming the new home of Liberal Democrats from CA....Yikes!!!!

Where I moved from in California, a Corvette and a Jaguar would be a sign of barely hitting middle class.
