Meet the Mascots: Miz Coco and Mr. Peaches

Mascot Peaches Window

Every organization needs a mascot, and we actually have two characters here at Boomer Connections that we would like you to meet.

Coco belongs to Cherie but has now been assimilated into the Boomer team. You can see how much she contributes to the vibe.

Many have thought her name derives from the many years Cherie and her family lived in Hershey Pennsylvania, but actually, she is named after Coco Chanel, for her effortlessly chic sense of style.

She is:
Cute and sweet…

We have all known men like Mr. Peaches in our lifetime: A good old boy, a bruiser, a loveable lout.


Peaches is a portly gentleman….really portly. When he is lapping up milk I can’t help but think we should throw down a can of Bud. The Peach calls to mind big men, professional wrestlers like Hulk Hogan or characters like the elder Orson Wells or Shakespeare’s Sir John Falstaff.

Am I right?




But while Peaches is more lover than fighter, he is no Rosebud. He is his own man and can take you or leave you, in the manner of cats. 

In people years these characters are Baby Boomer vintage at least, they are starting to move a little slower, just like us. Yet they serve as great role models and non-stop inspiration, because their light has not dimmed in the slightest with age. They continue to keep us amused and engaged, fulfilling their life’s purpose in the most beautiful way. No wonder some doctors say one of the best things you can do for your heart is to have a pet.

Cherie R. Blazer

Cherie is a late bloomer Boomer, born at the tail end of the Boomer generation. She was playing with Barbies while her older sisters marched on Washington and fought for equal rights, but watched and learned. Now she is an empty nester with a whole new future to explore and share at! As “Philosopher in Chief” Cherie merely wants to change the world with this blog: to encourage those of us in the midst of our “second act” to look at life with new eyes, open to a life filled with new beginnings rather than endings, and to apply all we have learned to a way of living that is more meaningful and profound. There is SO much to live for, up until the very end.
