 Stories Old and New

Beginning in 2000, Dusty began documenting stories of historical interest told people who had experienced history first hand.  A few of the old videos are being added as time permits.  This project was revived again in 2016 with more fresh interviews and better quality video and we are lining up new subjects.  Contact us if you know of someone in the Texas Panhandle we need to record! We are also recording contemporary events and human interest issues as well as storytellers of all types.

Live Music Performances in the Texas Panhandle - Heritage Preservation

Recording live music performances in the Texas Panhandle is another facet of our Heritage Preservation Project. That projects include information about current and historic Amarillo based bands and musicians along with links to video performances for each band and musicians we have managed to capture so far on the Live Music in Amarillo, Texas page. We have also documented all but two of the Amarillo Starlight Theater 2017 Season outdoor music concert shows.



PotFarmer On YouTube

Grow Your Own!

PotFarmer is my latest channel on YouTube. If you like to grow plants in pots you might be a Pot Gardener.  If you like to make some extra income doing the same activity to scale, you might be a Pot Farmer. Learn from my knowledge and personal experiences in both roles by watching my How-To videos!

I am just getting started with just a few pots and a few videos, but I am ramping up to have plants native to the Texas Panhandle to give away in Miami, TX by Spring. You may even get to carry on the Willie Renter family heritage Egyptian Walking Onions tradition if they have produced bulbs by then!

Please take note that production of new videos for this channel has been put on temporary hold. 




Other Playlists of Interest

Dusty has been having a lot of fun discovering music videos uploaded by many different YouTube contributors.  The creation of most of the playlists has been to group musical genres together for personal and public party playback.  Other playlists were created for personal interests and sharing with others.  Here is a list of some of the playlists that may be of interest to you along with a brief description.  If you are interested in the latest additions and findings, check out New Discoveries playlist.

Note that new videos are continually being added and sometimes changed to a more appropriate playlist.  Some the playlists have hundreds of videos so you may want to use the random play button to enjoy different clips each time you re-visit.  Have fun with it!

Spooky Stories 

I have always loved stories that give me goosebumps or shivers while reading or listening to them. I think it all began when I started going on Scout camping trips to the mountains in New Mexico. Most of those stories were classic tales told in the woods around campfires and were a lot of fun. But there are also personal first-hand stories of ghosts and creepy supernatural happenings that defy logical reasoning.

Papa Wayne
I have been aware of and interacted with the homeless, street people and hobos in Amarillo since the mid-1960s. The hobos who used to camp out under and near the Line Street overpass over the former Rock Island Railroad line were among my favorites to talk to and learn from. Changes in railroad shipping practices since then have all but eliminated the notion of "catching a freighter" to travel cross-country. 

Crazy Horse Family

William B. Matson and descendants of Crazy Horse, Floyd Clown, Doug War Eagle and Don Red Thunder, have been traveling around the US, Canada, and Europe telling their family stories and revealing the truth of the plight of Native Americans in general. Their visit to Amarillo marked their 105th book signing and storytelling appearance. This series is a part of the CaptiveImage.us Heritage Preservation Project and was recorded and published with the permission of William B. Matson and the Crazy Horse Family. Dusty Reins is holding the book in the photo above.


I have been pot farming and gardening since 1968 on my cousin's ranch in south central Montana while I was still in high school. I first began as a gardener for personal pleasure, then found I could sell enough quantities of my seedlings to make a little money to put gas in my car so I became a farmer.
