I grew up watching Texas Country Reporter, back in the day it was called 4 Country Reporter, that’s when there were only a few TV stations to choose from, channel 4 was a Dallas TV station thus the name was born. This show began back in the early 70s and showcased Texans living simple yet interesting lives, TCR gave us a glimpse into the window of those wonderful people.
This is such a sweet couple, Dick and Bonnie Cain, living the ultimate off grid life out in far western Texas, the love between them is as obvious as the simplicity they are living. I love the ending of this piece, where Bob Philips states, “…and I guess, if you want to simplify your life, you’d best determine if you can handle all that simplification first.”
