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.

4 O'clock Club

While looking thru some old photo's I found this good one of the original Buzzy's Country Store 4 O'clock Club members.  Photo was taken in 2001 and as you can see from the clock on the wall, it's just after 4 o'clock.
Jim Gray, Capt. Jerry, Charlie and Howard Gatton
Prior to meeting at Buzzy's, they would congregate daily at Ann and Tony Cusimano's which today is Mike Ridgell's Baymart.  After Ann and Tony sold their business to Ben, the group then migrated south to Buzzy's where many a joke and much laughter ensued.
Alan and Jimmy were close when they recorded this hit.  I say close because we all know it should have been "It's 4 O'clock Somewhere."
