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.

Oberammergau Pt. 2 (To Go or Not To Go)

Maybe Buzzy and the Gods-that-be really are trying to direct me about going to this:

Back in 2010 I did a post about how Buzzy in 2000 wanted us to attend this event.  I begged off on going and thus, every time that I now see something about the event I feel a little guilty that I told him no. 

Thus, when I first saw blurbs about the 2020 event last year (pre-covid of course) I thought about possibly going.  Like Buzzy noted back in 2000, my rationale was that I better go now because I either won't be around for the 2030 show or I won't be in any shape to make such a trip if I am still on this side of the Earth.   I thought that if I ever was to go to see Oberammergau, in the words of the King - it's now or never. 

Ultimately my decision was made moot when my trusted travel agent did to me what I did to Buzzy in 2000, and said no she was not interested in going. (There really is something to that karma thing you know.  I'd quote the popular "Karma is a bitch" but don't want you to think that I'm talking about my travel agent here.)

So, I filed my going to Oberammergau away in what I call my good-intentions-bad-execution file which, like me, is getting fatter every day.  I didn't really think anymore about it until just now when the above 2022 notice popped up in my internet travels.  

All of a sudden the possibilty of going is back and bobbing around like a red flag before me saying "I'm not letting you off the hook Ridge boy. You gotta do it."  I'll have to think about and have it guilt me some more I guess. And since I mentioned it - here is Elvis' best selling single that sold over 25 million copies worldwide. I bet someone in Oberammergau has a copy or two of it lying around somewhere.
