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.

Nelson Dean's Barn

Each day I pass it and see it, and get a little sadder watching it slowly deteriorate.  Like an old friend going down slowly, it's very sad to see.
Several years ago there was a State Sponsored program to preserve old tobacco barns (click here for info.)  Too bad this one was not able to take advantage of that effort. 

Speaking of barns and The Band (previous post) the last verse from their King Harvest comes to mind:

Last year, this time, wasn't no joke,
My whole barn went up in smoke.
My horse Jethro, well he went mad
And I can't remember things bein so bad.
