Gotcha Day Celebration

Celebrating Cady’s gotcha day two years ago.  Then and now photographs.

I’m so happy I monitored humane society website and then went and met her. After a few minutes, I knew she would be coming home with me. Her original name just didn’t match who she was, so I gave her a new one.

She is named after Cady Longmire. A character in the Craig A. Johnson novels titled Longmire. A series of 19 books (at this writing) and also a great television adaptation available on Netflix and other video outlets. The series ran from June 2012 to November 2017.

Heartland – The TV Series

I found this nice TV series from the Canadian TV network CBC called Heartland.  It is a multi-generational saga set in Alberta, Canada and centered on a family getting through life together in both happy and trying times.

The series is based on the Heartland book series by Lauren Brooke, but it changes the setting from Virginia, USA (in the original novels) to the small fictional town of Hudson, Alberta located in the foothills of the Alberta Rockies. Heartland follows sisters Amy and Lou Fleming, their grandfather Jack Bartlett, and Ty Borden, through the highs and lows of life at the ranch.

It is a family friendly TV show and it is filmed on location in Alberta, Canada.  The scenery is fantastic and the episodes and interesting.  Each episode is about 1-hour long and there are 18 episodes in each season.

They are currently filming the 10th season.  It is available on Netflix, Amazon Prime and from the iTunes Store.

If you want to learn more there is a nice write-up on Wikipedia but its content will give away the story lines and where the series is headed.  They also have information about each episode.
