This is another one of those sets that looked good then, but would probably get me fired today in its simplicity. I think the painter would be in the same boat as the paint aging is pretty bad, too. I have no idea which episode this was from but we built this from scratch in an area known as Sherwood Forrest on Waimanalo Beach--even though I think it was supposed to be in the mountains somewhere.
I thought it was good that you see that we didn't build any more than was necessary--hence the half of a water tank. It looks like the Greens Department had a ways to go getting some planting around the base of the cabin. There is very little age or uniformity in the dressing out on the deck. This sort of "screams SET" and doesn't look believable to me now. I've already checked--the fireplace rocks do not line up with the ones in Agatha's house (which sounds like I'm succumbing to "Magnum Mania" for detail!)--although it is strangely the same size. The stones all look too uniform and plain for supposedly being lava rock. Well, not much more to say about this set since I don't really remember any more stories about it. Since there is no way for me to top the last 2 postings, here is something less exciting for you to ponder.
As I am getting close to Thanksgiving, I may or may not have time to post again this week. Robin Masters would be right at home with my overindulgent feast, but unfortunately Higgins has the week off and I'm doing it all by myself. OMG, I'm slipping into Magnum dementia!
Happy Thanksgiving to all and let's be thankful for what we do have whether we are celebrating with turkey on Thursday or not.
