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.

Football Then and Now

I found these photos earlier in the week and thought to do something with them to comment on the current football season.  Back in the day Brady, Shea and I would have a Ridgell Football Party where we'd steam up some crabs, scald some oysters, move a T-V outside and watch some football.  Here are some photos of our 9 October 2005 Ridgell Football party.  It was also a semi-surprise birthday party for Buzzy whose birthday would fall 2 days later on the 11th.

The irony of me finding these photos and readying them for the blog here is that the Ravens lost that 2005 game to the Lions in a penalty-filled contest and then almost duplicated that feat in yesterday's game against the Eagles.


That was a recap from 2005 and here's a look at yesterday's game:


At least in 2020 the Ravens won.  Thank God we didn't have another party yesterday because they might have lost that one too had we done so.

Musically here's a tune that I have never sung to Pam.  How dumb do you think I am?  Ok, don't answer that.
