    Y - I don't think even around the early 80's this would have been considered a Yummy dwelling.

    Z- The Zenith of Cliff's oil career.

    [​IMG]

    Look at this picture (and thank you for uploading it, Guzzler). This is a clear turn of events. One of the only times Cliff Barnes has the upper hand. Look at the body language. J.R. is slightly hunched, and looking downword. Cliff is standing straight and looking upward.

    Now look at the clothes. Cliff's shirt is open, he is glad to be putting himself out there. J.R.'s shirt is not only closed, it is literally tied!

    And we all know what will happen next. Cliff will take the millions he made on his offhore oil drilling, and retire to a nice town with a big condo and take out Chinese food around the corner. He will forget all about the Ewings and live happily ever after.

    Oh, wait. . .

    G - Wow! Bunyip!

    I never knew what a "bunyip" was, until Swami just now pulled that old child-like curiosity out of the deep dark depths of my fading memory.

    The Bertie the Bunyip Show in Philadelphia ran from 1954 to 1966. Bertie was portrayed as a black-colored seal-looking character with a duck-bill-type face. For children, he was cute and friendly, getting into harmless situations.
    upload_2019-9-17_9-19-15.jpeg

    The bunyip is a large mythical creature from Australian Aboriginal mythology, said to lurk in swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes.

    There were multiple Grizzled characters on the show that could fit this lurking description, as now given to us easily via the internet.

    J - Due to not having seen Susan Flannery in other roles, I do tend to Juxtapose her with her character. But, this is usually a mistake. Take the annoying character of Swellen's mother - Patricia. She is a marvelously versatile actress...always a joy to watch work. Does the same hold true for Susan Flannery? Can't say.

    Quadriplegic

    Dallas had some ground breaking storylines, and this was one of them.

    I'm very proud of how they handled it.
