You Win!

Jerry O’Dovero Good evening, Redwing fans. Last week I attended a business meeting with my brothers and sisters. The hatred for me in the room by some of them was unbelievable. Truth be told, I don’t like me either. I don’t like who I’ve become. Left feeling abandon by my family for 14 years. Not … Continue reading

What Do You Think?

Jerry O’Dovero The other day I received a phone call from my brother-in-law Tom. Tom is married to my twin-sister Jean. Tom isn’t too happy with something I wrote in a previous blog and he wants me to “redact” it. Tom didn’t ask me to remove it, delete it, erase it, edit it, rephase it … Continue reading

Crossing the Rubicon

Jerry O’Dovero Good evening. It’s been challenging these last few years. I wouldn’t wish homelessness on anyone. Not even on people I don’t admire. I do have good news. I cannot go through life hating people. These last 2 ½ years, plus have been the worst years of my life. I’ve never felt so alone … Continue reading

How did I get here?

Jerry O’Dovero (quadriplegic disabled) It was around noon on September 15, 2018 when the door bell rang at my apartment in San Jose California. I hadn’t been feeling well. When I’m stressed out the bugs in my bladder start acting up. I use a catheter so I have those little bastards living there 24/7. To … Continue reading

Enemy of the State

Jerry O’Dovero (quadriplegic, disabled) The other day I watched the movie, Enemy of the State. It stars; Gene Hackman, Will Smith and Lisa Bonet. It’s one of those very few movies I can, and do, watch over and over again. Two other movies I can watch at the drop of a hat are Casablanca and … Continue reading
