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."

I was just looking for the Nathan Ligo I had the brief but memorable opportunity to train with the Carolina Kyokushin Club back in the mid 90's. I have continued my training with Brazilian groundwork, muay thai, and hapkido. However, I wish the opportunity to continue with kyokushin.

I am most probably the Hun in the story. I am looking for my old friend, Ligo, who suddenly disappeared from our life, and we miss so much. Life is so strange. I am sitting in the Lobby of Intercontinental in Amman, Jordan and finally found a sign of you. Nathan you s..of a b.. send me an e-mail!

Hi Nathan,
do you remember me from Davidson College in 1994?
All I read about you in the world wide web is so much YOU!
I wondered if you have become
a writing martial arts instructor or a fighting writerduring the last 14 years?

I am teaching at an International School in Germany - very close to Munich. If you happen to pass by this area or want to visit the Oktoberfest - just write me an e-mail!
Hope everything's fine!
