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.

Do You Remember?

September is the only month of the year that I am 100% sure of how many days a given month has.  That's because of the little memory aid "Thirty days has September...."  I don't remember any of the following verses about how many days are in the rest of the months, but I sure got September nailed down forever.

September's summery days tinged with morning hints of cooler weather, make September a transitional month in more ways than one.  We kick the month off with Labor Day which is always a fun, laid back holiday.  However, we then get bogged down plowing thru all the 9/11 memories, which this year will be even more over played because it's the 15th anniversary of all that.  Not sure I want to rehash/re-see it; but good news is that on 9/12 we can all go back to pretending that it never happened and enjoy the rest of the month. 

On the plus side, the NFL starts it's Sunday schedule of games on 9/11 this year.  (Think Stadium security will be tight for those game attendees?)

Birthday-wise in the Buzzy family my Godmother Peggy McMurray celebrates on 4 September.  Duncan Lepper has his on 5 September.  On the 6th  El-Chucko Mettam and Pat Woodburn celebrate theirs;  Jim Gray on the 8th.  David "Clutch" Raley on 9/11;  Gary "Chop Chop" Norris' on the 15th;  Lou Gentry the 17th;  Joe Cullison on the 22nd followed by Bobby Wright on the 23rd; Lori McKay and Donna Wheatley celebrate  theirs' on the 25th.  And to conclude a very busy birthday month, Joan Bean celebrates her day on the 27th.

So relax.  Summer is over.  Football is back and life is good.

Keeping with my Good/Bad/Ugly theme of the week, here's a video variation on the above that you may or may not want to view (click here.)
