    That kinda news, what a heartbreaker!
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.

    Who's Tom Petty and should I really give a concern about this?

    How timely. I teach a photo class at a college where I play music when people are doing lab work (no darkroom, it's all photoshop on a Mac.)
    One of my young students asked me to play some Tom Petty. I was amazed she even knew who he was. I ripped all my TP CDs (and I have a ton) and have been on a Petty kick for the last week.

    When my wide and I were dating Wildflowers was one of "our songs." I was pretty amused when our daughter announced last week that it was her and her boyfriends song.

    Anyway, there is no way he's 60. I'm pretty sure of that. Maybe 30, 32.
    WANTED: Not a darn thing. I've got it all. Life is good.

    Here's a little photo trickery I did a few years ago. That's me with Tom Petty's body and guitar. I'm a frustrated musician. This is about as close as I'll get to looking like a rock'n'roler.

    Hey Curtis,

    I checked out your blog, real cool and your wife is a babe..I wouldn't call her "wide" in a million years. That has to be one of the most dangerous misspellings I've seen!! :>)

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.

    Petty's "Buried Treasure" on XM radio is a treasure. As are all the Wilbury efforts. Seems like a genuinely good guy. He should ride. I think he'd like it.

    I don't know. You look more like a blues guy than a rocker to me.

    What channel is that on? Sounds like something worth checking in to.

    The heck with Tom Petty. Did you catch the "Pie for Life" story on the same page?

    Actually, you're right. I went from saying I liked "guitar-heavy, blues-based Rock'n'Roll" to "I like blues". And the 4000 blues songs on my iPod may prove it.

    My daughter is 15 and her favorite artists are The Beatles, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young. I took her to see Neil for her 15th birthday.

    She makes her old dad proud.
