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.

Amelia - Post Shutdown and Celebrating Ten Years!

Amelia, Her Son Jackson and Dad Terry in Buzzy's Country Store on 29 Jan 1917
Because she is in the Coast Guard and I am FB friends with her, Amelia (Madjeski) Ray has been on my mind a lot these past couple weeks. Every time I heard mention of Trump's stupid shutdown and how it was negatively impacting the 800,000 furloughed government employees, I thought of Amelia who is currently stationed in Louisiana.  My heart bled for her even more when I saw her post things like the following on her FB page:

Thus, I was very glad to see her post this just yesterday:
Congratulations on your 10 years Amelia!  And thank you for your service!  Here's hoping that there are no more shutdowns in your, or for that matter anyone's future!

P.S.  When I went looking for the photo above of Amelia, Jackson and Terry to include here, I had no idea of when I took it.  As thumbed back through my cell phone photos and finally found it, I couldn't believe it when I saw the date I took it was 29 Jan 2017.  Pretty cool coincidence that I'm using it today wouldn't you say?  Everything happens for a reason.

Upbeat boating song here seems appropriate for a Coast Guard Lady:
