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."

That's darned good for a blogger without name recognition cf. Malkin. Congratulations. I suspect you'll evolve quickly.


Us reptiles have to stick together. Oh wait, we fell back down to amphibians. . .it's so hard to hold the ground!

On P. 68 of a book (Letters to a Buddhist Jew)I was reading last night I found this pasage: "The Talmud states that one who fails to bow appropriately during prayer is reincarnated as a serpent."

Now your blog says that you are a SLITHERING REPTILE.

Any connection?


(Giggle) If I'm slithering "proudly," then I guess I haven't learned my lesson!


And I thought that Jews shouldn't bow when they pray. Or is it kneel? And, I guess, they probably shouldn't "slither" either. I like the idea of "slithering proudly" though - as long as your head is held high!
