Thank you, Arolldo,for your kind words on Pegasus and for the LIKE & FAV. The building on which it sets has been turned into a very comfortable boutique hotel...named, of course, The Magnolia. Warmest wishes, Phyllis

Hi Gordon. Thank you for your nice comments about Pegasus. :) of course, as you know, it's Exxon/Mobil now, but for a very long time Mobil was proud to be based in Dallas. :) Warm wishes from Okalhoma, Phyllis
