This is Buzzy's Country Store blog designed to keep you apprised of what's going on at the Store. Buzzy's is a general store located in St. Mary's County, Southern Maryland near Pt. Lookout State Park. Buzzy and Jean Ridgell purchased the Store from Jean's father Harry Raley in 1953. Buzzy operated it until his passing in 2009. His son J. Scott Ridgell is the current owner.

Janet and Cali at Buzzy's

Saturday evening when I saw her peep thru the front door, I knew that she was not quite sure about entering Buzzy's Country Store.  As she opened the door, her leashed black Labrador tried to nose his way in but she restrained him and  took him back outside.  When she returned into the Store, I told her that Buzzy's was pet friendly and that she could bring her dog in if she wanted.  "After all," I told her "black labs matter too." (I'd been waiting for the right time to use that line so I'm glad that Janet, as she introduced herself, and Cali, her dog, gave me the opportunity to do so.)

As always happens when someone who is friendly and has a pleasant way about them enters Buzzy's,  my Buzzy friends and patrons in the Store will immediately help make them feel right at home.   Dog owners in particular always seem to have an instant rapport with Buzzy folks who immediately make over the dog, its appearance, demeanor etc..  Dogs and Buzzy's are good means to making friends. 

Janet grabbed a beer and joined the Saturday night Buzzy crew to pass some time.  Here are a couple of photos.
