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.

Twofer Tuesday - Then and Now

Going through some old photos I found this one of Brady and Shea shooting pool with Buzzy seated in the background.  Note my Beatles and Stones decor on the walls.  I sure was cool rockin' daddy back then wasn't I?

P.S.  That picture of my folks with the green matting (to the right center of photo) is my favorite one of them together.  I've enlarged it here to show you:
And since I quoted him above when I described my younger self, here is the Boss in his own words.  Even though it's probably the most unpatriotic patriotic song ever recorded, it's been running thru my mind a lot these past couple of days.  Must have had something to do with all this nice weather we've been having.
