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."

Time to head back South?


Actually . . . I love this.


I love snow.


Too bad it'll be crusted with dirt by tomorrow morning. (At least it's gonna be cold tonight, so it won't also melt and get really yucky.)

It's actually snowing down here a bit today. Just a bit, but it's nice.

I miss the snow, and the frozen landscapes of NY in winter. Not enough to want to live up North again. But it had a kind of beauty you never see down here.


What year did you leave here? We haven't had much in the way of "frozen landscapes" for quite a few years. Oh, maybe one good snowstorm a winter. But it doesn't stick. Global warming is a reality here. Back in the '70s (in your early days) we used to be buried in snow all winter.

My last winter in NY was 99 - 00, but before that it was 93 - 94. The Hudson seemed to freeze almost every year back then.
