CoolesChicOnThePlanet, as you remember has the CutestGrandbabyOnThePlanet, and I try to keep her up to date fashionwize.

This month, my project was a crocheted Cowgirl Hat. While we were up visiting, Grammy bought her a baseball cap from the zoo. She wears it everywhere now, and SindaRella says she loves it. DarlingDaddy wears caps all the time, so now she is like her pappa.

Anyway Grammy decided to try her hand at this hat thing, and by golly it turned out “Darned Right” Cute, as Sarah Palin would say. Don’t tell BabyCakes, cause I haven’t mailed it yet, but she will look cuter than a bug’s ear in it, and when she comes down to the ranch, she and me can be in high fashion as we sip lemonade on the veranda.

Environmentally Going Green

Going Green Organic Style

Going Green Organic Style

Well, this CoolestChicOnThePlanet is finally adding Carbon Credits to the environment. Two weeks ago, we finally put in a lawn, and did some simple landscaping. Well, I thought it was simple, until I realized the only help CowboyDoc was going to do was pay the credit card bill for everything.

I put out an all points bulletin to any strapping young man wanting to earn some bucks. Surprisingly I got  4 young entrepreneurs. They worked hard and consistant, raking, shoveling gravel, breaking implements and feasting on my cooking.

It is exciting to see my little grasslings coming through. With the cool mornings down here, you can almost hear them pushing up the sod. I put my Environmentally Green lawn mower together last night, in my living room,  in anticipation of its maiden voyage.  Ok, so it is not a gas mower or a riding, and really does look pretty with all its green paint. I have been rolling it around the carpet, building muscle tone, just in case the lawn needs a touch up before winter sets in.

My CoolestDaughterOnThePlanet has used one of these all summer up North of the Mason Dixon Line, and was even featured on the evening news with it. Now, there aren’t any news cameras around these parts for many miles, but I will gain notariety anyway, cause people will think I am crazy.

And for those of you not up to date on Carbon Credits, my understanding is that you grow stuff, and then you sell imaginary “Credits” to others who are gobbling up the ozone. Sound like a great virtual scam to me, but hey, if someone needs them, I will grow them. My only problem, is to know when to fertilize the credits?????

Keeping it real in the back woods!
