No, he didn't get the day wrong. He just insists that there was a British tabloid newspaper that mentioned him by name in a headline the following day - something I have tried desperately to corroborate, but without turning up a shred of evidence for it. I have concluded that he has elaborated the story with each telling, and he believes his elaboration is the truth.

(Your dad's moon story is another interesting instance of self-confusion or self-delusion!)

Yeah, and what's more I don't remember what we did for July 4 that year, and I'm pretty sure Dad wasn't keeping his detailed diary till years later. I did write down some memories when I was younger and have to check them. We did make several trips to town before moving, and it's entirely possible we were there on July 4, but the actual move was not till July 20.

We "rummage" too over here.
We also have "rummage sales", which you know as "jumble sales".

And drifting even further (farther?) off-topic:

I bet you don't "scrummage" over there. Or have bring & buy sales.

I just finished watching "The Event" and noticed two actors who acted in two Ray productions. Clifton Collins, Jr. played Martinez in the Disney movie The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit. DB Sweeney, who played Montag in the Falcoln Theatre production of Fahrenheit 451.

"Not to overlook the writers, Aaron Eckhart presented Ray Bradbury with the Comic-Con Icon award for his dedication to the annual pop-culture festival.

"He's attended every single Comic-Con since its inception, which makes him the ultimate fanboy," Eckhart said. "At 90 years old, Ray Bradbury continues to prove that the human imagination knows no bounds."

The gargoyles on stage breathed fire to punctuate his words."

By now I'm sure everybody knows that Dark Discoveries Magazine, issue #17, has a never before published story by Ray.
