Found these beauties at a local liquor store 

Reminds me of how Armenian brandy/cognac was turned into a brand. I don’t remember the details, but if I remember correctly it was something like this. The importer of said Armenian brandy to France (late 19th, early 20th century) hired  good looking well dressed young people, who would go into liquor stores and ask for Armenian brandy. When told that the store didn’t carry Armenian brandy they would leave disappointed. Soon enough liquor store owners started ordering Armenian brandy to meet the demand. Once it hit the shelves people started buying it and since it was indeed good brandy it took off.

Summer is not over yet… There is still time…

Spring is here ;)

Such an awesome day today. The weather was perfect, sunny, but not to hot or cold. Because of Easter the traffic was at a minimum, people were just out walking, not hurrying anywhere.

Just won my bet against randomestusernameever. We had a bet that whomever spots the other first wins a round of garejur (beer). Today at 4:28 I bolt out of my house to get to the bank across the street, that closes at 4:30 and who do I spot right in front of my house? randomestusernameever, that’s who.
