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."

Tom Strong

Congratulations, Meade!

Donna B.

Ain't it just fine and dandy all the way 'round?

I am very happy for them. I remember that Meade once posted that when he was picking up some stuff from his ex, that she was yelling stuff at him and screeched "Why don't you tell it to Ann Althouse." And now he can.


I know. It's fuckin' awesome. I am over the moon for them.

And I know Meade loves him some of those onion rings!

I married late in life and had to make a lot of adjustments to how I live my life. Friends of mine who were divorced and then remarried after a long time as singles also had a lot of adjusting to do. So I hope they find ways to work it out. We need to help all we can by making them laugh. (I mean except for seeing Meade naked, nothing could top that for comic relief).

RW Rogers

This is wonderful news! Congrats to both of them.



Congrats to you both!

I think I'll keep blogging, talking to myself and laughing. I'll either get incarcerated or find another relationship. Either way, worth a try.


Troop: that's it! He makes her laugh. Roger Rabbit.

Donna B.

Hey... Meade made me laugh too! Was it only because I'm already married that I did not succumb to his charm???

Whatever... charm, love, lifepartnersmeanttobeordainedbythelovegodsof... whatever.

I wish Althouse and Mead the best. The very best, in fact.

So when are the nuptuals and are we all invited? Even if the invitiation means I drink a toast from this electronic terminal... I'm up for it.

In fact, I think I'll start practicting now!

Donna B.

invitiation = invitation. OK, I admit it, I've been practicing for some time this evening. I'd hate for it not to be perfect at the the actual nuptials!


I'll clink (wine)glasses with you, Donna. Here's to Meade and Ale!


How fun.

I'll have to reread some of the old threads in light of this.


I am kind of shocked. Happy for them but shocked.


Hi, Titus!! Yes, it's incredibly impulsive and romantic and old-fashioned -- not necessarily what you'd expect of the Professor.

Must be some tulip . . .


. . . or the mead.

Sissy Willis

Snap out of it!



Tom, Donna, trooper, amba, randy, Melinda, Peter, Titus, Sissy: Thank you for your kind, funny, warm, touching comments. Love, Meade
