    Hello Everybody!
    While eating breakfast here in Dallas, I noticed that you can rent space in the Ewing Oil building. At least the Ewing Oil Building during the first year miniseries.

    Of course, I immediately thought of all my friends on here, and wanted to share it with you. Just a little thing to make you smile.

    This is one of the pictures on the listing.

    If you want a little pick-me-up in your day, check out the listing:

    Amazing how often I think of you all when I'm running around Dallas.

    The chair, positioned in the forefront of the image looks like it's been there since 1978. :)

    And just think about how much fun in would be to go to the Oil Barron's Club for lunch.

    "Dora Mae, my usual table, please!"

    I liked the offices in the mini-series better than the ones they were replaced with. The new offices were smaller and uglier.

    Speaking of the “Ewing Oil Building.” Would a small independent company have the tallest building in Dallas? Lol

    Cool. Interestingly I was once within $10 of a winning bid to secure the original office name plates of JR and Bobby from the Culver City Office Set used 1982-1987.

    Leave it to Billy Wall to look "behind the scenes" and come up with a question like that. Very good point.

    That name plate would be almost as cool as your screen name!

    When was Ewing Oil ever referred to as a "small' company?

    It seemed as if Ewing Oil changed in size to fit the storyline. I do recall it being referred to as a small independent company at least once. It certainly wasn’t big enough to own the tallest building in Dallas.
