The Mercy has arrived

It made it to Portland earlier today. The big Navy hospital ship is undergoing a $60 million repair job at Swan Island for about a year.

As a friend points out, it seems like a heck of a time to put the ship out of commission. It must be in rough shape.


  1. “The quality of mercy is not strained.
    It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
    Upon the place beneath." --Shakespeare

The platform used for this blog is awfully wonky when it comes to comments. It may work for you, it may not. It's a Google thing, and beyond my control. Apologies if you can't get through. You can email me a comment at, and if it's appropriate, I can post it here for you.
