Dissembled and Reassembled

I love my moleskine's for journaling but was getting tired of the way all the inks and paints would soak through and come out in several different places.
I decided to take my newest one a part and punch holes in covers and pages so I could use binder rings.
Now I can remove a page and do what I want to it and then put it back with no messy pages,unless I want a messy page.

A Dog's Purpose (from a 6-year-old) Repost

Anyone who knows me well,knows I love animals and do rescue work with dogs and cats.
It's my passion and what I love.
At this moment I have 4 dogs,2 cats,and 10 rats,YES 10 rats,2 sugar gliders and a cockatoo.
I love each and every one.
Anyhoo,I wanted to share this little story,if you are a dog lover like me you'll understand.

A Dog's Purpose (from a 6-year-old)

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on.
Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for awhile after Belker's death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, 'I know why.'
Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation.
He said, 'People are born so they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?' The six-year-old continued, 'Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.'

Bless all of God's Creatures!
