Hickory Wind

In South Carolina there are many tall pines
I remember the oak tree that we used to climb
But now when I'm lonesome, I always pretend
That I'm getting the feel of hickory wind

I started out younger at most everything
All the riches and pleasures, what else could life bring?
But it makes me feel better each time it begins
Callin' me home, hickory wind

It's hard to find out that trouble is real
In a far away city, with a far away feel
But it makes me feel better each time it begins
Callin' me home, hickory wind

Keeps callin' me home, hickory wind

-Gram Parsons and Bob Buchanon

South Carolina opens her door to all...including Boogie:

Glenn Haydel brought along his 18-month-old dachshund Boogie.

In part, it was his reluctance to leave his pet that led he and his wife to remain on an island near New Orleans despite being cut off.

“Nothing works in the city. Absolutely nothing,” he said.

Haydel said they finally decided to take a chance and agreed to be airlifted out this morning and were pleasantly surprised when they were allowed to bring along the dog.

“We just got lucky. It’s been a rather taxing effort, lots of anxiety.”

Upon their arrival in Columbia, Lexington County authorities took the dog to a shelter to have it examined and then returned it to its owners about four hours later with a Carolina Gamecock leash attached.

“Wonderful, wonderful,” Haydel said. “He’s my buddy.”
