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.

Still Here

Yesterday's post about the declining numbers of British pubs reminded me of the 2006 Washington Post article about St. Mary's Counties' vanishing country stores.  It featured a front page article and photo of Buzzy and Myrtle (click here) as it discussed how country stores were disappearing.

I was still working on Base when the article appeared in the Post. Someone emailed me "Great article on your Dad's store.  But I think Myrtle has been sitting on that bar stool waaaay too long."
