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.

SOTU, Melania, Joshua, U2, Julia and Johnny U.

I have a free range mind that naturally wanders around from subject to subject without rhyme, reason nor direction.  Some of this I attribute to the effects of all that booze I drank and all those "mind altering" drugs I took when I was younger.  

Then again, it may have something to do with when I was growing up in Buzzy's Country Store and learned very young that conversations and things in general can and do flow with no rhyme or reason.  Things just sort of bounce around and  happen.

So with that little introspection as my background, today I will give you a prime example of my free range mind in action.

First, lets begin with the Donald's State of the Union snore fest as young Mr. Joshua Trump so  accurately reflected:
And speaking of finally seeing Melania in public after her being incognito for a couple months here she is below without the scowl shown above and for that matter without anything else:
Reminds me of Pastor Pat getting upset and slamming Michelle for showing her arms. What you got to say now Rev?  How do you spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-t-e?
But back to Joshua and of course music-wise it led me to this from U2's Joshua Tree album.

Little musical trivia for you here: U2 have only had 2 songs that went to Number 1 on the charts in the U.S. and both songs were on Joshua Tree. In addition to the one above the other was With or Without You.  

Every time I hear Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, I think of Julia riding that horse in the opening scene of Runaway Bride (click here.)

Little more trivia for you.  Did you know that Johnny Unitas makes a brief appearance in Runaway Bride?  He is shown sitting on a bench in front of a bakery (above.)  You can catch the whole movie by clicking here and then look for Johnny at the 23:03 mark.  Look quick though.
