Show 325 - Minding the Line Fly Fishing Movie and PTSD Resources

After missing last week, I was determined to get an episode up.  I recording and edited it.

The SOS software decided to garble my speech. 

And then it stopped working.

So I turned to my phone and made something happen.

This is a quick look at the new movie called Minding the LIne, which is a fictional movie about fly fishing, PTSD and coping as best you can. 

I'll get the rest of the episode re-jiggered and try again. 

I might have to miss an episode or two, it is getting hectic at Amalgamated Salt and Brimstone and some times you have to yield to the sulfur.
