Tortoise Cat: EYOW! All I want to do is cat-nap and dream cat-grassy dreams! But the Big One has been bugging me to blog.
Chameleon: I notice the Big One is also behind in blogging. What a funny coincidence!
Tortoise Cat: What is a co-incidence, Chameleon? There is now happening...And otherwise, whiles of napping, hunting, hiding, strolling, eating, lapping, smelling, listening, poo-peeing, scratching, biting, bathing, snuggling and dreaming happen, now and again. What is NOT a co-incidence?
Chameleon: Tortoise Cat, you are wise AND other-wise!

Tortoise Cat: After my first horrible chilly-dim-season, long whiles ago, I have steadfastly refused to step on snow. Do you remember those experiences?
Chameleon: No, but an angel told me horses let you ride over the snow back then, Tortoise Cat.
Tortoise Cat: Yes, my second Big One was a horse. Then, when cat-grass season sprouted up suddenly I wandered off.
Chameleon: And you met me, next.
Tortoise Cat: Yes...And many others...Before you arranged for me me to meet the Big One of this home.
Chameleon: Tortoise Cat, I do not know why snow blows in with so many sad and scary reminiscences...though brighter blessings have always sparkled though.
Tortoise Cat: EYOW-YES...that is true!

Tortoise Cat: Most of my favorite plant-pals have already gone into hiding, underground...But their drying, dying bits and pieces have started emitting the most surprising, perplexing, extraordinary aromas...!
Chameleon: Relax and allow those potent transformational essences to induce amazing, shapeshifting dreams, Tortoise Cat!
Tortoise Cat: OK. EYOW. Am I really flying, Chameleon?
Chameleon: Well, yes. In these wondrous autumnal day-dreams you are soaring and diving most skillfully, Tortoise Cat.

Tortoise Cat: EYOW. Cat-Grass Season is all but over, Chameleon. I was so sure this one would last forever!
Chameleon: Longer-Dreaming Season is about to begin. Your cat-naps will deepen and grow more fun, Tortoise Cat.
Tortoise Cat: I prefer sun-rays warming my fur and living vegetable aromas to dreams, Chameleon.
Chameleon: But, Tortoise Cat, in your dreams you best the taunting Robins with your Griffin-ish wings, and even join the Crows in aeronautical shows!
Tortoise Cat: EYOW. You cannot convince me the icy, chilly while I sense and feel overtaking us is as wonderful as Cat-Grass Season, Chameleon. But I shall do my best to make the best of my longer, deeper cat-nap dreams.
Chameleon: OK. The Big One is ready for your next garden stroll. Go on, Tortoise Cat, prowl through today's brisk breezes and let your furs absorb as many southward waning sun-rays as possible, and let your nose show you the brightest synesthestic tapestry of this season's fading flowers ever.
Tortoise Cat: Thank-you, anyway, for attempting to cheer me, Chameleon.

|Tortoise Cat Sniffing Dry Asters|
Tortoise Cat: Whew. I forgot how delicious those dry flower buds smell!
Chameleon: Those are Asters, Tortoise Cat. Pink and purple Star Flowers. Can you smell the different flavors like the bees, butterflies and moths do?
Tortoise Cat: When I bury my whole head in the plant, curl my tail and ruffle up my nose, I imagine I can. But, this means Cat-Grass Season is waning, again!
Chameleon: There are a few whiles of your long favorite season left, Tortoise Cat. Now, tell me, is nose-ruffling anything like nose-blurring?
Tortoise Cat: Nose-blurring just happens when a strong odor whiff suddenly swirls out of a flower. Nose-ruffling is reaching way into the plant to catch the smell-swirl after it's gone hiding.

|"Squirrel went in there," meowed Tortoise Cat, "But I can wait a while and wag!"|
Tortoise Cat: Why did the link list disappear on our blog, Chameleon?
Chameleon: The Big One explained Blogrolling.com might be linking by mistake to a bad website that could cause computer problems for our visitors. The Big One removed the blogroll until that problem is fixed.
Tortoise Cat: Could we link-blog another way?
Chameleon: The Big One is looking into it. You might have to open another Web 2.0 account somewhere, start all over and do it yourself, Tortoise Cat.
Tortoise Cat: EYOW! I would rather stroll and play with that squirrel who keeps hiding stuff in the rock garden.
Chameleon: I was kidding.
Tortoise Cat: Let's go out for a while before it gets dark! Look, that squirrel is hiding stuff in the Big One's trash bag!
Chameleon: It happens. OK, let's stroll.

|Tortoise Cat and the Next Generation of Thistles|
Chameleon: Oh, play on, Tortoise Cat. This year's Cat Grass Season will last some fun whiles longer. Weeds and grasses are renewing and thriving in our home territory, though our tree neighbors are shedding their leaves early.
Tortoise Cat: Does Cat-Grass Season last longer in the Central Valley of California, where the Big One wants to go and mark new territory?
Chameleon: Grasses grow through the darker, rainy days there, but need extra water during stretches of longer, hotter days.

Tortoise Cat in the Rock Garden on a moist, muggy August afternoon
Chameleon: Good save, Tortoise Cat. It's too hot for your fur-suited, warm-blooded body to stroll, let alone prowl or play, so nap and dream on.
Tortoise Cat: My custom cat-grass patches are thriving within reach, so I'm content.
Chameleon: I'm appreciating the brighter, vivider colors and oders the dampness is bringing out.

|Tortoise Cat rests in a favorite territorial garden nook.|
Tortoise Cat: The Big One mentioned moving to another territory! Why?
Chameleon: The rumpus of city life...? Winter snow impeding progress...? I don't know, Tortoise Cat. It must be an old longing for the first home territory.
Tortoise Cat: What do you mean, first home territory?
Chameleon: It's wherever one is when exploring and marking beings, like your first place with the Big One, two blocks westward.
Tortoise Cat: Where is the Big One's first home territory, Chameleon?
Chameleon: It's in a land called Central Valley, where summers are hot but dry with cool night ocean breezes. The way big ones reckon distances, it's much closer to my own home territory called Point Reyes Seashore.
Tortoise Cat: How?
Chameleon: I will shape-shift into a dragon and fly, Tortoise Cat. But you and the Big One will pack a van and roll along.
Tortoise Cat: A van? What is that? Must we roll dangerously fast like we did to and from the Big One's folk's territory during snow-season, way too far westward, but wonderful when we arrived?
Chameleon: A van is much bigger than the car you rode to the folk's place in and it will roll slightly slower. But, you will roll much farther westward and arriving will be...wondrously amazing. The ride to the Central Valley will take about five days.
Tortoise Cat: EYOW! What is "five"...?
Chameleon: Five is just one of the many, many words the big ones use to say "some"...but as cats count, the ride will take some days and nights.
Tortoise Cat: More than one and more than two, is too, too long a ride, Chameleon. When?
Chameleon: Next year, probably. And that's too long from now to keep on conversing about today, Tortoise Cat.
Tortoise Cat: Is next year after cat-grass season? Because this cat-grass season might never end.
Chameleon: It won't happen before the next cat-grass season, Tortoise Cat.
Tortoise Cat: OK, Chameleon. Let us play, nap and dream through every day of this perfect cat-grass season that might last forever.

|Tortoise Cat Foot Bath in the Rock Garden|
Chameleon: If Blog-City isn't going host individual bloggers anymore after a year or so, why stay on? Now is always the best moment for a new beginning!
Tortoise Cat: When will the Big One turn our old blog into an ebook?
Chameleon: We must keep pestering the Big One for it to happen sooner rather than later!
Tortoise Cat: ...Because the Big One isn't so swift, usually!

So check back for more, soon!
The Big One backed-up our old, longstanding weblog for future publication as an ebook, then deleted the site.
Maybe we can re-publish some favorite posts.
We apologize for broken links. Stand-by.
