Bossy is about to type the sweetest story ever told and it goes something like this: Once upon a time, Bossy wrote a blog post about Bossy’s husband Robert Culp, who was the sexy and dynamic star of the 1960s television drama I, Spy.
And then once upon a time a handful of months later, Robert Culp’s daughter googled her recently deceased father’s name, when what should appear but Bossy’s post about Robert Culp!
And once upon a time after Robert Culp’s daughter read the post Bossy had written about Robert Culp, Robert Culp’s daughter had the style and wit to email Bossy!
And so once upon a time after that, Bossy and the daughter of Bossy’s husband Robert Culp became friends!
And so when Robert Culp’s daughter found out Bossy was going to be in Los Angeles this past week, Robert Culp’s daughter offered to take Bossy on a tour of some of Robert Culp’s favorite places! Shall we?
Bossy’s day with Robert Culp’s daughter began in Robert Culp’s favorite breakfast spot, Silver Spoon, where Bossy ordered bacon with a side order of bacon:
The next stop on the Robert Culp tour was his favorite independently owned book store, Book Soup:
In between Robert Culp’s favorite places, Bossy took photos of a few famous things in and around Hollywood:
Next Bossy and Robert Culp’s daughter visited Robert Culp’s favorite Los Angeles Farmer’s Market:
And then all too soon it was time to say goodbye to Bossy’s new best friend, the daughter of Robert Culp!
Stay tuned for the next installment of Bossy’s Los Angeles Guest Riders series, when Bossy swims with the dolphins! Which may or may not include the swimming part! Or even the dolphins!

That is the coolest story!
Sugar Jones saysApril 12, 2011 at 4:53 pm
GET OUT!!! How cool is that?
And also… that is a GREAT Farmer’s Market. Drove by last night and wished it was open.

Hey Boss, Thanks for sharing…I’ve always loved Robert Culp, too. Great picture of the two of you. Isn’t Farmer’s Market great? Book Soup, too. Hope to meet you when you are next in LA! That car IS good-looking but such a camera hog. Really.
Meg at the Members Lounge saysApril 12, 2011 at 6:37 pm
Swoon! I loved Robert Culp, too! How awesome is it that his daughter is so cool, too. Tres crafty Etsy page, Rachel!
barbra saysApril 12, 2011 at 6:37 pm
Oh, good, you DID go to the Farmer’s Market! I’m glad. Also glad you went to Book Soup – although I have never been, because in Pasadena we have our own wonderful independent bookstore: Vroman’s!

Wow, all the shots of sunshine and palm trees are killing me! (ex-california girl living in seattle YES it really does rain here 666 days a year!)
Cool Rachel Culp! You rock and your dad was a fabulous actor, did not know he was a cartoonist, voracious reader, and bacon fan. (ick, guy with sandals)

Next time you see a Tomales Bay Food truck, throw Robert Culp’s daughter under the wheel to distract the driver, then sneak into the back and get your hands on a few wheels of Red Hawk from Cowgirl Creamery. (Don’t worry, any injury to Robert Culp’s daughter will be magically cured by the miracle of really good cheese). Behold: http://www.cowgirlcreamery.com/cheeses.asp

I always adored Robert Culp too, glad daughter Rachel gave us all the Bossy treatment. You are a good stalker, Bossy.
Darcie saysApril 12, 2011 at 9:08 pm
No way! That’s bitchin!
PS: I anticipate a post about how you knocked over the food truck to get the Red Hawk cheese.
Smacksy saysApril 12, 2011 at 9:23 pm
This is all just super groovy.
And now I like two Culps.
Kathi saysApril 12, 2011 at 10:16 pm
Wow, Robert Culp’s daughter certainly resembles Robert Culp. What a good looking family. Thanks for a great post.
Ellen saysApril 12, 2011 at 10:30 pm
Wow! How cool is that? And how nice that Robert Culp’s favorite places seem so downhome and neighborly (not all Spago-y and fancy).

Always liked Robert Culp – then loved him after he gave a guest lecture in a cultural studies class I took… he was funny and lovely.
kay saysApril 13, 2011 at 11:39 am
I feel the same way about Bossy that Bossy feels about Robert Culp. Except for the wanting to marry her and lusting after her part. And the fact that Bossy isn’t on TV. Yet.
But if I wrote a blog about Bossy, would Bossy (or her children) find me and befriend me?
Sadly, probably not. I loved your dream-come-true story, though. Lucky Bossy.
kay saysApril 13, 2011 at 11:41 am
p.s.: I like Robert Culp’s daughter’s clothing design.
The tattoo parlor jacket especially speaks to me. Me, with no tattoos.
Birdbrain saysApril 13, 2011 at 2:36 pm
Oh, oh and maybe that Tomales Bay Food truck had some Tomales Bay oysters in it. Bossy, follow that truck – Red Hawk cheese and oysters, yum!!
Olivia saysApril 13, 2011 at 7:23 pm
Who was Robert Culp, wonders Olivia from the Great-White-North?
There weren’t a lot of television sets in our igloos . . .
Gramps saysApril 15, 2011 at 9:43 am
That last picture of Bossy. Well, it kind of—sort of —-Lordy, Lordy—ummmm—well, Bossy’s—ummmm
