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.

Events in a Small Town

A number of events around the County are on tap for this weekend.  For more info on what's happening  (click here.)

At Buzzy's Country Store, the usual suspects will be doing their usual thing.  This past week Joyce and Rick from Annapolis were visiting the County after having lived here when Rick was stationed at Pax 40 some years ago.  They both remarked to me how much the County had changed and how little Buzzy's had not.  I took that as the ultimate compliment.  Buzzy's - the way things used to be right?  

Another Farm Aid (yesterdays post)  performance for you here from 1987.  John's line "I was educated in a small town" rings particularly true for me because I graduated from St. Michael's grammar school, Ryken High School, St. Mary's College and GW's off-campus Masters' Program at Pax River Navy Base.  And to this day, my education continues at Buzzy U!
