Being a girl named Elizabeth who grew up in Sunnyvale in the ’70s, I was always fascinated by the Toys R Us ghost Johnny Johnston. As a film major in college, I considered making a documentary about him but was discouraged by time and budget considerations. In the years since then, I’ve abandoned a lot of dreams, but I’ve never forgotten about Johnny Johnston. I always thought I would meet him someday.
The only problem is that I can’t find evidence of any recent encounters with him at the store. He seems to have gone.
