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."

Happy Blogday!


You go, me sis!

Tom Strong

It's been a pleasure, one day to the next.


Happy Birthday! Or anniversary?

Ah, it's been a good year, Amba. Pity that now as old age creeps up on you that you don't remember most of it. Quick: where you on February 3 at two in the afternoon? See?

And how do you feel about having been at this a year? A bit ambivalent?


Wow, 802 posts in one year is truly astounding. And every single one was interesting and enriching!

Mazel Tov!!


...and MANY MooOOOoooe!

I know you write books, but I was wondering how you liked this to book writing? I suppose it would be difficult to compare as they are really different fruits. i'm just glad for the impulse I had to follow you here for ABC's. (I call that Divine Intervention ;)!!)


Thanks, Karen!!

Actually, this and book-writing are complementary, I think. This kind of frees you up to write fluently and more recklessly, in a good way. I was always so terribly careful to say what I meant in book writing, I'd get stuck. The difference is, you put stuff in a book (and give it a shape) that you want to last longer than a day. Blogging is like breathing, writing a book is like building.


Congratulations on your first year - and we hope many more. I for one, found you through the CUBE post a while back. I still come back to read that sometimes.

You rock, Amba Sis. Or is it SisAmba? SisBoomBa? Bah, Humbug. Bah & Ockie. Stop me, please!

See, your influence is contagious. Happy First BlogYear, Amba - & many More!


Congrats. At my current pace it will take me approximately 80 years to hit 802 posts. And my pace seems to have slowed...


Many happy returns of the day.

Like an 800 pound amblebee buzzing down both sides of the bloggarden.


Cheers! And well wishes for more amba breathing into the blogosphere next year.


I hate to be the last on a thread again, but I missed the "r" in more up there. Either I have too much *moo* in me to pronounce, or subconsciously took on a NY accent there for a minute!


Oh Happy Day, Amba! Wonderful celebration - and many many more.
