I don't know the date of the photo, but Little Jimmy Dickens is still performing. He was in Houston on Valentine's day.

Wow. And in Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone? I learned that Hank dated one of Maybelle Carter's daughters (Helen or Anita--it wasn't June). In those days the country music stars really were like an extended family.
