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'm sure that Oprah is thinking, "Surely he's not talking about me!" in the finest Baby-Boomer Me-generation tradition.

Strange that this subject came up. I had a doctor's appointment today (to make sure that this seemingly non-stop cold had not developed into something else. It hasn't.) Anyway, they had a new electronic scale installed since I was there just after the cold's onset. "Ah! More modernizing, I see!" I said to the nurse (computer terminals were installed in visiting rooms earlier this year). "Not really" said she, "The old scale with the weights only went up to 350 lbs. and as we have five patients over 350, there was no way to know if they were gaining or losing weight. Now we will." (I kid you not!) She continued, "The new one goes to 500. If anyone comes in weighing more than that, they'd better be taller than 7-6, or I want to know how they managed to walk in by themselves." I was speechless.
