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.

Stage 1 1/2?

Gov. Hogan's reopen plan consisted of 3 stages (click here.)  When he implemented Stage 1 on 15 May many bar and restaurant owners were disappointed that their businesses were not included.  However, Hogan's plan all along had bars and restaurants slotted for a reopening in Stage 2.

As an interim measure however, many bar and restaurant owners are now lobbying hard for a Stage 1 1/2 where outside service would be permitted.  Locally, Seabreeze Restaurant and Bar has taken a lead in this effort as discussed on their FB page:

Friday's edition of the Enterprise also contained a good article on this matter (click here.)  So we will just have to wait and see if Hogan decides to approve any modification(s) to his plan.

As for how this would impact Buzzy's reopening should Hogan ok outside service, I would have to think about it.  My first thought is to hold off a little longer and see how it all plays out before putting the Buzzy beast back on the prowl.  Again, I defer to my default mode of - when in doubt do nothing.  

But speaking of being outdoors here is one of the all time best movie endings ever.  Only caveat is that it makes me sad seeing and missing John Candy.  In case you are wondering, Dan Akyrod's dance partner, who does a great job keeping up with him  here, is Stephanie Faracy.
