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.

Pride of Baltimore Coming to Town

If today you happen to see a tall ship heading down the Bay, around the Point and back up the River, it will be the Pride of Baltimore heading to St. Mary's City (click here for details.)  It is scheduled to arrive around 430 this afternoon and will be available for touring (for free!) at the Maryland Dove dock this weekend.  

Go check it out and then head a few miles south to visit an authentic country store still sailing along and riding the tides of time.  Maybe I should rename Buzzy's the Pride of Scotland.

And speaking of sailing life's currents, Jimmy is the undisputed King of Yacht Rock with several songs on the subject.  This following one of his might be my favorite and not just because of the lines "I pissed it away so fast" and "I've been drunk now for over 2 weeks."   Sarah singing along with him of course takes it to a whole nother level.  I think that  you got to be old to fully appreciate this tune.
