In my life it’s a HOLIDAY! Tom Petty Day! October 20th 1950 he was born. Happy 64th Birthday Tom Petty! (here is a t shirt i made years ago with a hand painted top hat i’d love to give to him in person-but have given up on that dream as he does not like to meet “fans” and he also seems to prefer earth tones…i could paint him an earth tone hat or some suede boots in earthy shades)
