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.

Recycle Recycle

I did a 30 year cull of Enterprise references to Buzzy's Country Store by focusing on year 1991.  I found only 2 mentions but both of them had to do with recycling.  

First to appear in the paper was a Buzzy-penned Letter to the Editor in a March 1991 issue:

Buzzy's recycling efforts then landed him on the front page of the Enterprise in July 1991:

All of which makes me feel a little guilty because I have ceased recycling anything at the Store.  During Covid, the can recyclers shut down their operations so I began single streaming everything into the dumpster.  I have not resumed any recycling.

But, having just now seen Buzzy's two 1991 mentions about recycling, it makes me re-think all that.  Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?  (However, please note that I said "re-think" it; re-starting it is another matter.)

Speaking of questionable dog behavior, Dr. John had a funny observation about his bad ass dog or more specifically - his bad-ass wife:
