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.

A Dozen Years Ago

I took these grab shot photos on 22 Aug 2007.  (Those digital date stamps are great aren't they?)  I call 'em grab shots because there was no posing nor set up on my part as the photographer.  That explains why no one is looking at the camera save for the final posed photo of Shea and Mom.  (It also explains why Shea's head is cut off in Photo #3 here.) 

I think the occasion was a get together to celebrate Brady's birthday which falls on the 25th of August.  In the first photo, obviously Shawn looks like he preferred the licorice over the Gatorade..

These photos obviously were taken at Buzzy's Country Store but I also have these two which were taken a little afterwards at Courtney's.  I'm guessing that we all rendezvoused at the Store and then picked up Mom to head down to Tommy's for birthday dinner.

 For no reason other than it mentions Jean, I kinda like this song.  However, note that I prefer Anne's version to the Monkees'.
