Here we are with the first long weekend of the summer upon us. Yes, with fireworks about to go off from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific coast on Sunday, celebrating Canada's 145th year of Confederation, summer is now in full swing. Read on!
Also in full swing is the countdown to Heartland's Season 6 premiere - a scant 87 days away until Sunday, September 23. That's 12 weeks and 3 days away. I for one am SO looking forward to seeing what the new season of Heartland will bring!
Including today there have been 4 episodes completely filmed, along with 3 days of capturing scenes from episodes 505 and 506. Filming continues through tomorrow and then the cast and crew are taking a well deserved break from production for 10 days. As I've explained before, most of the key cast and some crew are not Albertans and so the production schedule has been set up to let these people return to their homes from time to time to spend time with their family and friends.
For one Heartland cast member --Michelle Morgan-- everyone's favourite Lou Fleming, it is going to be a weekend she never forgets as she and her fiancé Derek are tying the knot this Saturday. I'm sure you'll join me in wishing the two of them a fabulous wedding!
Production filming --and along with it daily Tweets from set-- will resume Monday, July 9! Not that we're going silent on Twitter - there are always fun things to
Plus, this Sunday, July 1, you can enjoy a repeat broadcast of Episode 511 --Fool's Gold-- which is the episode when Megan Follows returns as Ty's mother Lily, with the sad news that Ty's father has passed away. I've included some photographs from the episode in this week's blog.
Hopefully you can enjoy the repeat broadcast and then find someplace to celebrate Canada Day wherever you live. Even if it's not in Canada! ;)
Last Monday's time killer tricked a few of you and had you wearing out your scroll button as most of you finally came to the correct conclusion that the two identical photos were #1 and #5. Photo #2 has a rock missing on the left side of the horse, Photo #3 had different tree branches in the background between Amy and Ty, and Photo # 4 had Amy holding onto a longer loop of rope than in the other photos. Good one, dontcha think?
This Monday may be Canada Day, but it is also Time Killer Monday, and I'll have another mental exercise to keep Heartland fans around the world alert and engaged.
Watch for it. Until then, and until next Thursday when we lop another 7 days from our ongoing countdown...
Tick... tick... tick...
