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.

Today in History

 Two historical events today:

At Buzzy's 11/19 Tommy and His Right Hand Mann - Bob (Even if he is on Tommy's left hand side)

Of even more importance than the patenting of a traffic light however, this day in history marks the birth of one Thomas Courtney 75 years ago. Here is good 2010 Enterprise article I found on Tommy and Julie (click here.)

Also, check out this video that I have played before but is so well done that it merits a second showing.

Julie has agreed to give Tommy a hall pass so he can visit Buzzy's later today and buy his birthday round. Come join us if you can. Remember to bring and wear your mask.
