even though i had one of these prior to tom putting the ones he found up for sale, i decided to order another copy to throw some scratch his way--really glad i did, too. when he shipped it he tossed in a few picks and a hand drawn doodle. i thought that was a pretty cool touch.
some get stoned, some get strange, sooner or later it all gets real.

That's cool! I never had one until now. I ordered mine yesterday and sent more than the suggested price, so Tom could feel it was worth the time and effort. Later in the evening, I sent him a message on Instagram thanking him for the hand-drawn doodle/cartoon get well postcard he sent me back in December after my terrible car wreck. It meant so very much to me, and I wanted to let him know. This morning, he had replied to my message and mentioned he had received my order for this 7'' and was trying to get it shipped out today (he did because I got an e-mail stating my order was on it's way). Maybe he'll send me a pick and another doodle too. I can only hope. Also, Tom just re-joined Twitter last month and has 119 followers at present. You all should start following him again. He's got 8,405 followers on Instagram too.
