At Least There Are Robots

Bad news is coming out so quickly I turned off all media and took my mother down by University Bay to watch robots.

Dang, a midday news story just came on promoting an event that was cancelled minutes before. The event was the Shamrock Shuffle which does not bode well for the Madison St. Patrick's Day Parade.
DOH—now that's cancelled.

Not sure if this leprechaun is laughing or crying, maybe a little bit of both

The university is clearing out the dorms and telling students not to come back after spring break. I work out at a UW fitness center and suspect that will close down too. 

Did I mention the Dempsey Clan was chosen as Irish Family Of The Year once?

So, robots, they amuse my mother and me. We see them by the soon to be empty Lakeshore Dorms zipping around like fast food ninjas. Their nesting area is close to an incredible ice cream store

We spotted a student getting a delivery outside of Bradley Hall on Sunday. Crazy to think how much can change in four days.

I was going to talk about the 30 food delivery robots that are so damn adorable, I mean, how do they cross the street without getting hit? And no one jacks them for their hot, delicious pizza? But I'm too distracted.

There is one piece of good news aside from the existence of ninja food robots and that is today, of the multiple out of stock items not delivered to my mother, they had toilet paper and it was on sale. 


  1. Robots do lots of wonderful things. Food delivery is a really good thing.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. ♥

    1. You too, Sandee. These little guys are so darn cute.

  2. Robots can be super cool and fun to watch, as long as they don't want to be in charge! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  3. If the news is bring you that dorms are clearing out -that is crazy, and good you decided to turn off the news. Your images and looking at robots are much more worthwhile. At least you can't catch a virus with that, lol! Many thanks for sharing these experiences with All Seasons, they speak of hope and fun! Have a great weekend, Jeanna:)

    1. Thanks, J. I'm afraid to both watch and not watch the news. I think this is happening at colleges across the country. The pizza robots are weeping.

  4. The news is just bad these days. What else can you say?! Sad that so many things are being cancelled, especially St. Paddy's day stuff....from a true DNA Irish Girl :) Thanks for linking up today.

  5. That is impressive that the robots aren't taken.

  6. Hello, Robots delivering food that is interesting. I love your cute Oliver. I am not sure if we are being safe or over-reacting? Take care and stay well. Enjoy your day! Have a great weekend!

  7. It is amazing you found toilet is in scarce supply around here! I wondered the same thing about the robots...I might be tempted to steal at least one piece of pizza. LOL But too about the part about getting hit or stolen.

  8. Yikes, yikes, and double yikes. I feel like we’re living under a curse. Can’t believe the TP was there *and* on sale.
