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.

Mom on the Farm

As a follow up to yesterday's post about Mom's trip to the farm upon their return visit to Maryland, here are some other photos of her during that visit.  Obviously Buzzy was into taking photos of her on this occasion because these are the most pics that Mom ever appeared in at one event.  (Remember she was usually the one taking all of the photos.)  

Mom Holding Up a Rabbit and Then Holding Granddaddy Ridgell at Gun Point

I think Granddaddy is holding a chicken in his right hand.  Probably dinner.  Regarding the photo of Mom with the rabbit, note the concrete design in the ground that she is standing next to.  It was a star-shaped structure that I never did know the story behind it as to who did it and what, if anything, it represented.  However, I do recall the magnolia tree that it surrounded.  Good excuse to play my favorite Dead song:
