Okay, "ages" may be an exaggeration, but given the chance any Blog Whisperer will always employ alliteration, which is the repetition of usually initial consonant sounds in two or more neighbouring words or syllables, as in Time for Tim, Super Spartan, Jovial Jack... well, you get it. Click through for some cool pictures, and more!
Yes, the Blog Whisperer mandate to entertain AND educate is STILL being met! :D
Anyhow, I was going over all the photos from Heartland recently and it struck me that the series has indeed been around for a healthy time. For those of you who aren't aware, the pilot episode was filmed in the fall of 2006 and then in the spring of 2007 the delightful decision (alliteration!) was made to film 12 additional episodes, creating a first season of Heartland.
That was 5 years ago, so I thought I'd post some pictures of Amy from the pilot and from each of the five seasons and present them all together as part of this blog post. Unlike a lot of series where the characters seem to be frozen in time, Heartland's characters are aging as the seasons pass. That's a good thing too, otherwise Amy would still be 15 years old, and I don't think anyone would be expecting Ty to be seriously thinking about a proposal of marriage!
Scroll down to the bottom and enjoy them all.
More accolades for Heartland!
Speaking of enjoyment, the other day on Facebook I posted the good news about Heartland getting nominated for a Rockie Award. Well, yesterday the Alberta Film and Television Awards (The Rosies) were announced and Heartland has come away with 10 nominations this year. This time, Heartland fan Val beat me to it, but...
Congratulations to the following Albertans who will be in Calgary at the Gala Awards Show on May 12, when they will find out if they have won...

It's so great that Heartland is receiving this recognition. But really, it's hard to keep a secret when something this good is seen by so many - and for over half a decade now!
That's it for this week. Let me know what you think of showing photos from past seasons. If enough of you like this maybe I'll do it again in the future!
Have a good weekend and I hope the weather is cooperative. Me? I'm planning a trail ride on Bloggy, my trusty steed.
As always, if I get any breaking news you know I'll post it here RIGHT AWAY. Until then, or until next Thursday, imagine me riding off into the distance...
