Isolation: How Do We Handle it?

Posted by Teresa, Volunteer Mentor @hopeful33250, Mar 16, 2020

As boundaries are being mandated in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, these boundaries are affecting every area of our lives. Many hospitals, assisted living facilities, places of worship, libraries, restaurants, community centers are being closed to visitors and public gatherings. For many of us, these keep us from our typical ways of connecting with others and engaging with a supportive community.

What are you doing to keep yourself connected?

NANCYSHORTSHOT) A DORY BOAT IS 22' FEET LONG, IT HAS A FLAT BOTTOM TO BEABLE TO LAUNCH INTO THE OCEAN OFF THE BEACH.. WHEN DONE FISHING THE BOAT GOES PRETTY FAST AND SLIDES UPON THE BEACH AF FAR AS THEY CAN CLIDE. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BOAT IS TWO POLES ONE REACHES OUT TO EACH SIDE AND THEY ARE 22 FEET LONG. THESE HAVE A LARGE SPING ON THE OUTSIDE EDGE OF THE POLE. CABLE GOES THROUGH THE SPRING AND THEN FISHING LINE AND LURES GO ONTO THE POLE EVERY 15 FEET FOR A TOTAL OF 10 FISHING LINES. SO NOW WE ARE FISHING DOWN IN THE WATER 150FEET. EACH SIDE OF THE BOAT IS THE SAME. wE ALSO HAVE ANOTHER LINE THAT WE PUT 5 LINES DOWN WITH A FLOAT ON THE AND WE SEND THAT BACK BEHIND THE BOAT ABOUT 80 FEEET. WE FISH FIVE LINES ON THE FLOAT LINE. HOPE THIS MAKES SENSE. nANCY/ SHORTSHOT

Shortshot/Nancy: I hope you have someone to drive you to appts., as I know you must have to go to the valley, either Salem or Portland, for specialized tests and treatments. If not, contact me personally so that we can try to set something up.
