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.

Carroll's Equipment

Buzzy's Country Store has been owned and operated by my family since 1945 and is a three generation business.  My Grandfather Harry Raley bought it in 1945, sold it to my Dad Buzzy in 1953 and then I took over in 2007.  

The only other local business around that can either match or exceed that accomplishment is Carroll's Equipment in Dameron.  Here are a couple items I nicked off of Massey's You Know You're From St. Mary's FB page  .

Today marks the start of a transition for Carroll's as detailed in this item from their FB page:
Good luck to Carroll's as they make this transition.  

With the Classic Vinyl channel on at the Store Saturday, I heard this song played a couple of times during the day. It made me think of a comment someone made about Classic Vinyl only playing the same 30 songs over and over.  However, when the second verse kicked in (00:50 mark)  I think I figured out why they had it in heavy rotation yesterday.  (Hint - it has something to do with the date.)   One last note though - I'm still not sure I know what a hoodoo is (click here.).
