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.

Party at Buzzy's

When I opened Buzzy's Country Store this past Saturday morning I knew before even looking at the till that there had been a party of sorts the night before.  (The trash can was over flowing with beer bottles.)

Turns out that a great birthday/reunion party was had at Buzzy's Friday night hosted by  Debbie Gerek-Larsen and her husband Ty.  Debbie not only was celebrating her birthday but also was catching up with her 1979 reunion classmates. (Photo here was taken by Debbie's cousin Mischelle Gerek-Mattingly.)

One thing I have learned about partying and get togethers thru the years, it's that the best and most fun ones are usually the ones that just sort of happen without a whole lot of planning.   This occurs quite frequently at Buzzy's.  When it does so, I always think of the old joke "I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out."  Folks go to Buzzy's and next thing you know a party suddenly breaks out.  

My thanks to Debbie and all her Class of 79 friends for dropping into Buzzy's Friday night for such a good time.
