WELCOME!

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.

Stubborn Kinda Fella

From Some French Philosopher Montaigne
I won't go as far to say that Buzzy was a stubborn kinda fella; but I will leave it at - once he had his mind made up, it was a little tough to sway him otherwise.  

However, when you come right down to it, aren't we all a little like that?  That said though, I still think that there are some folks who can be just a little more say "dug in" than are others.   And once they are so entrenched in their mental bunkers, there is absolutely no swaying to be done when trying to convince these folks otherwise.  (Note that if I mixed my metaphors there, it's because I was too stubborn to change what I'd written.)

Believe it or not, this is an authentic billboard produced by the Agency for Healthcare and Research Quality AHRQ.gov.  (If you are having trouble reading the second line on the sign it encourages men to "Learn the preventive medical tests you need."  Good advice in this day and age that we find ourselves trying to live and survive in don't you think?!
 
Recall my mentioning yesterday some great music from folks that you've never heard of?  Well, here is another example - Frankie Miller.  I first encountered him on a mixed tape that my buddy Mike Whitson game me some years ago and have liked him ever since.  The following is a little bit of a sad story about him but he's still a stubborn kinda fella.  (P.S. I found this video when I went looking for Frankie's cover of the famous Marvin Gaye tune by that title (click here.)
