Speaking of my neighbor, one thing he has is neat booze. It’s the kind you don’t drink, you just look at. For example:
I’ll translate. It’s German. It’s made in Dusselldorfer. It’s Krumme (Pronounced “Crummy”) And it’s Kraut Liquor. That’s how you know it’s German.
This is Polish Vodka. (One day I’ll tell you about my trip to Poland in 1996) My neighbor is Polish. But this vodka is just something you also just look at. It’s got wooden handles and a cork you can pour it through once it’s opened.
This is really neat. It’s got a whole pear inside. You know, of course, that they put the tiny pear inside the bottle and let it grow. Very cool.
This is Cerberus Magenbitter. It’s more Kraut booze as you can see from the label. (You know that Cerberus was the thee headed dog that guarded the entrance to Hades. I don’t know who the guy on the label is. Maybe the dog’s owner.)
This is Mountain Schnapps. It comes with it’s own Swiss yodeler’s hat and a little stein. I wish I could yodel. I’ve been trying all my life. Can’t do it.
This is my favorite. It’s Five Star Armenian Brandy. It’s in a glass slipper! Fantastic!
