Monday Magic: M #H50

Welcome to Magic Monday! A memorable day in the Merry Month of June!

A funny thing happened with last week’s post. The designer who created the paper I used in the background of the letter L recognized her work! She’s a fellow H50 fan! If you enjoy digital scrapbooking, visit Ang’s shop at Scrap Girls. I used another of her designs this week, but sadly the letter M doesn’t allow much background to show.

Next week, I probably won’t have a Monday Magic post. I have a house full of visitors and just don’t think I’ll have time to put together a good entry this week.

Now, onto our most marvelous letter M!

M is for….



Marriage for Chin Ho and Malia

Mary Ann McGarrett

I have such a soft spot in my ย heart for her.

This is from the deleted scenes for the pilot. They originally were going to have her attend her father’s funeral, I guess.

Mary thinks Steve and Danny are surf buddies! ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Mary and Morty


Max the musician

Max the medical examiner

Great tux!

Whew! Max is relieved that the dead guy is okay (even though he’s dead).

Max and his costumes

USS Missouri

I always thought this shot from S1 was great. He turns the corner and there’s the ship! I wonder if it’s really at the end of the street like this, or if they pieced the shot together for dramatic effect.

You don’t see the Missouri from this angle very often. Isn’t that a marvelous view? Look at all those delicious details. There just aren’t many battleships like this, so we should pause to appreciate from this view. Go ahead, take your time. I’ll wait.

The most obvious M (to me), Steve McGarrett. With a little McMom and McDad mixed in. :mrgreen:

I discovered this weekend that Steve’s dad is the President (at least in the world of Iron Man 3).ย 

Sleepy McGarrett

Mischievous McGarrett

Green shirt McGarrett

Uniform McGarrett

Trying to reason with McMom (LOL!)


McMom, who breaks in and cooks breakfast ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

SEAL McGarrett

Smiling McGarrett

Goofy McGarrett

Let’s finish with one of my personal favorites.

  1. I have absolutely nothing after looking at this last shot. All wittiness is gone. I’m drooling and not ashamed to admit it. I need a bib! Love this shot – the eyes, the face, the scruff, the hair, the shirt. Sigh, plop and thud….

      • Agreed. That last shot will be a favorite forever! Even if you take away the scruff, plaid and handsome face (please don’t), you still have this incredible emotional statement said completely and totally with an expression and his eyes. Classic.Moment.

  2. this >>>> M is for Mahalo!!! And M is for mwaaaah!!!!
    I really like Mary. Don’t like McMom that much…
    But SEAL McGarrett…. *thud*

  3. You’re welcome! I’m with you on all accounts. Mary=like, McMom=not. And SEAL Steve is a beautiful thing. If only the Navy had a plaid uniform…..I’d be dead.

  4. Mary=like (mostly I like big brother Steve around her), McMom=love/hate, Max=not. I know it sounds horrible that I don’t like Max but I don’t. I love Masi…but i just don’t ‘get’ this character. I find him 5% endearing, 50% boring and 45% just weird. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • He can be weird, but I guess I usually look at him more as “quirky.” I like, too, that he adds something to the show, a totally different character.

  5. I love this post, thanks and the letter M is also the 1st letter in my name ๐Ÿ˜‰ !
    McG’s body in season 1 looks awesome, I’m always anew taken aback at how perfect his muscles look in all those shirtless scenes. And how he nonchalantly removes his shirt while Danny, Chin and Kono talk (Kono made a great joke! Chin too!) Have you noticed, we can see his pecs from the side, I’m sooooo jealous! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I like Mary, she’s Mary!
    Best Lori scene was with Max, the Grease-make-up!
    What else can I say? “I.Love.Green.Shirt.McGarrett” ๐Ÿ™‚ !

    • You sound very happy! Yes, the lines were something about “I’ll call you” and Kono said “bet you say that a lot.” Love when they tease him like that. “And now you’re taking off your shirt?”

      I had the same thought about that being the best Lori scene!

  6. Thank you, this is so good!! I could never put all this together โ€“ how on earth do you remember all the names?? I have troubles remembering that Mick is Mick and I donโ€™t think I ever noticed that Mamo is Mamo. Iโ€™m terrible ๐Ÿ˜ฆ .

    I got the most kick out of the Missouri cause for a long time I couldnโ€™t figure out what the h3ll youโ€™re talking about. Then I did see the Missouri, the biggest object in the pic โ€“ but not the most interesting one LOL โ€ฆ

    • IDK, maybe I remember some of these because I go through the episodes in such detail when I write a recap? I do look up names, too, either on the show credits or on imdb. I’m obsessive about details. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

      That’s so funny that didn’t notice that big battleship! I don’t have any idea what else you could have been looking at. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Certainly not Steve’s amazing backside?!

      • That’s a lot of effort!! I’m impressed ๐Ÿ™‚ … And glad that I have no issues writing a recap without even catching a single name ๐Ÿ˜‰ . But then, obvi, it’s not really a recap. I do check on the actors’ names, though, and I do this all the time – it took me ages only to remember O’Loughlin ๐Ÿ˜€ .
