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.

CWS Friday Redux

I am now taking my Grandson Shawn to high school, so I can re-start my Buzzyblog feature CWS Friday.   (CWS = Conversations With Shawn.)

I did this a number of years ago when Shawn and his sister Lily lived close by and would come by my house each morning prior to catching the bus.  I would then relay various jokes and things that they said as they ate breakfast and chatted about life in general.  

Now, several years later I am pleased to once again be having such conversations with my grandkids and see the world through their perspective as they try to figure things out. 

Shawn and I were talking politics the other day and he noted that his Dad had discussed the differences between the two political parties.  Shawn relayed how his Dad had told him about a little girl who wanted to be President and her parents used a cutting-the-grass story to determine what political party she would be a member of.  Shawn laughed as he told me the story and noted that he thought the Republicans were right on.

Next day I called Shawn's Dad Shea and asked him about this exchange.  He said it was something that he had seen  on Facebook. I told him that it had impressed Shawn enough for him to have told me about it.

After my call to Shea, I hit the internet search button and found the item Shea mentioned from this website (click here.)
The website also contained the Democrats' version of the story.  
I can't wait to tell Shawn about this version of the story.

I guess because the above involved discussions about the haves and have nots, the George Benson opening line of this tune popped into my head:
