Does anyone live near enough to Oblong, Illinois that they might be enticed to do me a favor and visit Jim Finney for me? You just need a digital camera to take some photos and lots of time (Jim likes to talk!). If so, please call me at 586-651-5760.
And here I thought this was going to be about the headline in the Bloomington IL newspaper about 40 years ago:
OBLONG MAN MARRIES NORMAL WOMAN
I guess it could be Dick in a round about way.
Dick, I sent you a private message. If you don't get it, please call me here at 586-651-5760 EDT.
Answered it, Bill.
Thanks, Dick! Maybe someone in Central Indiana or Indianapolis?

Lonnie, did you get my PM I sent? Call me if you didn't at 586-651-5760 EDT
Any truth to Oblong,IL being originally named Henpecked, IL.? My family from Robinson and Flat Rock always claimed that.
Even if you're not near Oblong, it's worth the trip to visit with Jim and see his stuff.
