Jerry O’Dovero Over the past year I’ve written more than dozen blogs. I just can’t seem to post them. I don’t want to tell you bad things about my family. A lot of who I am I owe to them. I wouldn’t be here living alone if it wasn’t for them. The O’Dovero family gave … Continue reading

Dream Weaver

Jerry O’Dovero It’s 3.00am and I must be lonely (Matchbox 20). Actually it’s 3.01am I just woke up from a dream. I have to write this down before I forget it. This dream felt way too real! In my dream I was somewhere and my brother, which will be nameless so he cannot sue me … Continue reading

A while back my buddy Kip came down to visit.  He brought his dog Gwen. Gwen has short brown hair like a chocolate lab, but the nose and feet of … Continue reading

Clean Sheets

Jerry O’Dovero (quadriplegic, paraplegic, handicapped, disabled) Do you make your bed every morning? For the first 15 years of living of here in California I did. Strangely, it’s when I felt my best. Now I highly doubt there’s scientific or medical proof that making your bed keeps you healthier, but I believe it does. Making … Continue reading


Jerry O’Dovero (quadriplegic, paraplegic, disabled ) A few weeks ago I went sailing another time with Kip. This time my friend Jackie came along. Again it was in the BAADS’s keelboat. While I’ve known Kip for 10 years, I’ve known Jackie for more than 30. She’s from my home town. As luck would have it, … Continue reading
