Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Oh, posted 24 minutes too late to qualify as Friday (Big) Cat Blogging! Nevertheless, that's a cool picture.


Yeah, damn, I realized this morning I missed the deadline. (Maybe it can sneak in under the wire.)

So close. So close. And the car's a hybrid so it starts silently. Dick might well have failed to get out from under.

You would have felt bad, my kids would have cried, my wife would have cried, and I'd have locked myself in the pantry and danced.


As far as I could tell (correct me if I'm wrong), he didn't pee on anything while you were away. (Maybe because he spent so much time outside.) He purred quite a bit too.

Wait a minute, could it be . . .

Now you're making the argument that Dick hates me, that his pissing is a deliberate hostile act. This naturally frees me to respond with equal malice, in a manner appropriate to my own species. And man, as we know, is the ultimate predator.


Oooooooh, big kitties! One reason my favorite theme park is MarineWorld. Don't know when I'll get the chance to go to Africa.
