Ray, I have written a poem for your birthday and it can be sung to the tune of "Mother"..I send it to you with tons of love and mostly with tons of thanks for changing the way I think about life...Live Forever!
Ed Lineberry

B is for the Boy who'll live forever

R is for the Rocket Man you are

A is for the August you were born in

D is for the Dandelion Wine you've served

B is for the Beauty of your writing

U is for the Universe you love

R is for the Reading you've inspired

Y for Yestermorrows yet to come

Put them all together they spell Bradbury

The man who means the world to me

Mog the Dog here.

My favorite human companion is twice twenty-four today. She asked Ray a few years ago if he remembered his forty-third birthday and he wasn't sure that he had. She then asked him if he thought it had been a good day to come into the world, and he roared in reply, "Oh, hell, yes!"

Many, many more Joyful Years! "CelebRAYte!"
It has been a privilege to have shared so much, with so many (students, family, friends, and folks here) because of Mr. Bradbury!

You could call this the birth of a new era:

1966: Original Star Trek series debuted on television

I should add that the first episode that aired was written by a dear friend of Ray's, George Clayton Johnson. The Man Trap is often called the Salt Monster episode. (George also gets credit for coining the phrase, "He's dead Jim.")

A little bit of bragging here but I got invited to a lecture next Thursday by Leonard Nimoy.

I gave George a call earlier today and he did not realize the date was today. Wished him happy anniversary he thought I meant his 59 year marriage... (silly man)
