Anyone know how Shorty 's health is?
I saw where his special friend died in November, I sent a card to him but got no response.
Figured you would know.

We saw Shorty Finley this weekend.
He is in good health for an 80+ gentleman.
He will attend the Festival of Glass for an hour or so on Saturday - not to make glass, but as a visitor.
