84- CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, July i4 - july 2012000 Submitted photo It's not what you think...Mr. Markham (Kenney Workman), thinks there's some explaining to be done when he believes Mrs. Markham (Rosanne Pack) and Alistair, the interior decora- tor (Thorn McFarland), have their own designs in the works.
