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.

Gary/Lucky Lobster/Soca Music

Went to a dinner party the other night and caught up with Gary McKay.  He was back home for a few weeks taking a break from his businesses in Belize.  (I have previously discussed Gary's Belize operations in this Buzzyblog post (click here.) ) 

Here is a photo of Gary and yours truly at the dinner party.  (Please note that, even as a Ridge Boy, I don't wear a ball cap to a dinner party.  Gary gave all of us several Lucky Lobster Bar souvenir items including the hat along with this shot glass and a cozi that I am showing off here.    To learn more about the Lucky Lobster (click here.) 
Here is a closer look at the Lucky Lobster hat.  The location is Hopkins a coastal town located on the south east side of Belize.
Thank you, Gary!
Music-wise Belizians are into a reggae/hip hop style of music known as Soca.  Here is a sample for you.

I also landed on this video that features the Lucky Lobster. You should be able to recognize Gary.
