Today I met Susan Olsen from the Brady Bunch

Darlene and I went to the Time Tunnel "Super Toy" show this morning in San Jose. This is a pretty amazing toy and collectible show that happens 2-3 times per year. I went today because Cindy Brady aka Susan Olsen was making an appearance to sign autographs. We got there at opened at 11 and waited in line for over 30 minutes to get in the door. When we got to the door we realized that not only was Susan Olsen at the show but Richard Kiel aka Jaws from James Bond was also there signing. We met Susan Olsen and she was very nice. All the money from the signing was going to an organization called Paws...they rescue animals. Saw lots of cool toys that brought back a lot of memories. I almost grabbed a Major Matt Mason Space Station in the box but got a hold of myself and didn't buy it.

After the Toy show we got a soda and headed over to Guitar Showcase...nothing there today.

Next we went over to West San Carlos Street and hit the antique stores...I found a Life magazine with The Beatles on the cover for $5 as well as an issue from 1966 all about the discoteque scene in the USA. Also found a copy of The Torch Has Passed about the JFK Assassination and funeral but this copy is special in that it has the dust jacket. I have never seen this book with a just jacket and didn't know it existed. A sweet grab for $5.

This is about all for today..tomorrow's another day on the hunt with Alameda Point and the White Elephant sale. I report later about how I did.  Just found out that Alameda Point has been cancelled due to the rain....shit!
