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.

June Birthdays - A Day Early

OK I am a day early as I usually post the Buzzy birthdays on the first day of the month.  I was going to introduce this with something along the lines of how it is usually good advice to be early rather than late and make a reference to that saying about the early bird getting the worm.  

However, when I did a little checking on how that saying came to be, I found this Shel Silversten ditty from his Where the Side Walk Ends:

Early Bird
Oh, if you are a bird, be an early bird
And catch the worm for your breakfast plate.
If you're a bird, be an early, early bird -
But if you're a worm, sleep late.

That in turn reminded me of something I once heard about how the second mouse is always the one who gets the cheese.  Maybe I need to rethink that being-early-is-good-business.

Here then, a day early, are the Buzzy birthdays that we celebrate this coming month:

My niece Jean Hofmeister 1 June; my grandson Shawn Ridgell 2 June; Teeny Boy June 11; my sister Donna Jean Taylor 12 June; Kayla McKay 13 June; Lee Carroll 17 June; Cheryl Trossbach on 18 June; Sheryl Mandeville 22 June; my great nephew Wyatt Taylor 23 June; my nephew Todd Taylor 28 June;  and Michelle Lengel on 29 June.
