50+221 Coolio attends a Royal Wedding

A couple of good friends of mine are Bob & Susan Sedlak of Bowmanville, Ontario

Bob has been very helpful with anytime I have been stuck trying to fix a computer problem but more than that he is a good friend and we get together almost every Saturday night at mutual friend Herman’s house where we will watch Mythbusters, Hockey games, play hattrick and talk computers and Soccer. His wife Susan is a wonderful lady that enjoys reading and knitting, and after seeing my blog Oshawa Ogre’s Views, News & BBQ’s Susan decided to start a blog on her own called Kittens with Mittens where she talks mostly about knitting.

She is also a fan of my little buddy Coolio and his adventures so I arranged for Coolio to take a little trip to spend a week with Susan.

Coolio ended up to be invited to attend the Royal Wedding as you can see in Susan’s latest blog post.

50+194 Coolio goes to the Blue Jays Home Opener with my sister and I

This year the Toronto Blue Jays Home Opener was on Friday April 1st…. no foolin’!

I had dropped Coolio off at ……..

Coolio, loves BBQ too!

Wait first maybe I should tell you who Coolio is.

When I went on my Southern Expedition I was doing the drive alone, so I thought it would be Cool to bring a few furry friends along for the ride and take pictures with them throughout the trip, more of a gag than anything else. but it has morphed into a fun little diversion from life itself that sometimes likes to kick your ass.

And to go back a little further I found Coolio and the Gang when I was doing some Christmas shopping in a neat Warehouse Liquidation type place in Scarborough, Ontario and I only paid $1.00 a piece for them. Thus Coolio and the Gang were born.

When I got back from Florida I even made Coolio his own facebook page so that anyone could track his adventures and see the trouble that he gets himself into.

Anyways let us get back to today’s story.

last week I needed to visit a supplier in Mississauga, just down the street from where my sister worked and Coolio was in my car and Regina had made a few comments in the past about Coolio and the fact that she was following his adventures so I thought she would like to see him in person.

I drove into her works parking lot and called her from my cell and asked her to meet me at the front door. She said come on in I am in the lobby and I walked up to the door and it was locked. I phoned her back and told her and she said I guess I did not tell you that we moved our office over a year ago!.


Well after getting directions it turns out she was only 5 minutes away so I dropped by the new place and surprised her with Coolio and said she could keep him for a week til we would get together at the Toronto Blue Jay’s Home Opener on April 1st

She embraced the spirit of what Coolio was ll about and took pictures of him getting in trouble at her work  which you can see here and here.

So Friday night was a blast where the Blue Jays destroyed the Twins 13-3 and I had my hands full trying to keep up with Coolio as he wanted explore the Rogers Centre and get himself in some trouble here and there.

If you would like to check out Coolio’s day at the ball park you can check out his photo albums here, and if you like what you see, please leave some comments and ask to be friends with my little buddy, There will be many more adventures.
