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.

Charlie Simms at the Ridge Rumble

Commissioner Mike Hewitt posted the following on his FB page following the Memorial Day Ridge Rumble. 

Here on the Buzzyblog  I am very proud to have done several previous posts on Charlie and his fascinating life.  Charlie really is an amazing person whom I, and everybody who knows him, admire very much.  Every day when Charlies strolls into Buzzy's Country Store around 4 o'clock, just the sight of him coming in the door makes me feel a little better.  

For those of you who do not really know him, I recommend you take a minute and just scroll thru some of what I have posted about Charlie thorough the years (click here.)   As Mike noted above, Charlie really is a great man.  

Musically, I gotta think that Bob was talking about Charlie when he wrote this song about staying forever young:
