Charkoudian Drugs, Springfield, Massachusetts

"When we were growing up, after they learned I was Armenian, folks would ask me if my father was a rug merchant.  Did you get that?" Marash Girl asked Marash Boy.

Marash Boy replied without hesitation. "No. Everybody in Springfield knew that the Charkoudians sold drugs -- they were drug merchants."

Both Marash Girl and Marash Boy wish you all a Happy St. Patrick's Day. Did you know that there's an Armenian community in Ireland?
