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.

Say a Prayer

Sunday Pray Day.  I recall seeing the above painting of Washington Praying at Valley Forge somewhere in my travels and thought today would be a good day to show it here on the Buzzyblog. 

The painting was done by Arnold Friberg and is said to be worth $12 million (click here.)  The following video tells you how Friberg also did the story boards for DeMille's Ten Commandments movie.

As noted in the video, Friberg painted a lot of horses along with his main (no pun intended) subjects. None of the horses ever got any credit which leads me to this: P.S. How could he have spent all that time in the desert and not have given his horse a name?!
