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.

Don't Mess With Maryland!

Hats off to my daughter Reagan for a perfect response to this dude on FB slamming Maryland:

It reminded me of when Buzzy and I visited Lou Gentry in El Paso in 2001.  Lou told us that he was responsible for the Ft. Bliss Commissary now stocking Old Bay after he couldn't find any there when he moved back to his hometown from Maryland.  Lou was very proud of his contribution to their inventory.  (I didn't see any Maryland flags around his place though.)

Although Wiki lists them as a Washington, D.C.-based band, I always think of these guys as Maryland boys.  Next year they celebrate 50 years of playing the blues.  Good article on them by John Kelly (click here.)
