Dandelion Wine: Madame Tarot

Many of the stories in Dandelion Wine were expanded in later Bradbury stories.

The story of Madame Tarot morphed into one of the most frightening books I've ever read: Something Wicked This Way Comes.

Douglas' fever being broken by a wandering peddlar was later echoed in the short story "A Medicine for Melancholy".

Do you remember any bizarre and seemingly unexplainable events from your own childhood? In retrospect, do they seem less fantastic? Or will they always live in that special "supernatural and amazing" part of your memory?
