Living Independently for Everyone!
On June 27, 2017, a small but enthusiastic group gathered to go fishing at the Portneuf Wellness Center Pond at Bannock Reservoir. We sat at the dock that stretches all the way across on end of the 7-acre pond. While arranging ourselves our Nightlife leader, Larry Landrie, sat a camp chair on the dock. A gust of wind came up about that time, and blew the chair into the pond. Before anyone could grab the chair, it sank to the bottom. The creativity in our group came out while trying to retrieve the chair from the depths of the pond. A cane and fishing pole were used to try and reach the chair, but had no success. To relieve the frustration, Darlene Brown passed out cookies. Tracy Martin tried to come up with other ideas that included asking a lady who was swimming on the side of the pond if she would help, and asking the lady on the surf board if we may use her paddle. About that time, one of our other members, Jeremy Cage jumped in and dove down to retrieve the chair. You never know who is going to step up and be the hero. Thanks Jeremy! Other giggles were heard when Eddie Brown tried to tease Tina Dressel with the worms he brought for bait. While many excellent casts were made, the fish did not take any of the bait. As we were leaving two fish were seen just below where we were seated on the dock.
