Mercy is NOT a good neighbor.
They have No intention of moving their J St. truck operation, ever. Not even after their present work is done in 2013.
for Wednesday February 15th
This colorful visitor attracted my attention with the sunlight shining thru his drip bags. Only the green shows in the photograph and a bit of the yellow one. It was a bit nippy but he was warmly dressed. There was an other smoker at our property. He didn't look friendly and might have sent me into next week so I didn't bother him. The colorful bags shown above reminded me of cool-aide.
Joanie and I live next to Mercy on J St. at the corner of 41st St. Our corner of the world used to be simply located along side the Hospital. Now, it's consumed by trucks, noise, and exhaust since construction began in 2008 on the heart and vascular center.
Since the hospital banned smoking on its campus January 1st 2011. The many smokers have simply moved next to our property. We have lived next to Mercy since 1986, 25 years of relative peace and cooperation until their expansion. As far as I know this is not a temporary situation, but will continue after construction which is due to end in 2013 (?)
