Mini-golfing in Monte

August 5, 2010 - Cindy Votruba
After dealing with an entire new computer system at work these last three days, I seem to have neglected blogging. I even had a subject to write about, a nice quiet weekend before I had to deal with the "big change." It's been frustrating, but slowly I'm learning to cope with it. This upgrade is like starting from scratch on a lot of things, things we've had saved for years, from graphics to page templates to other design items.

But I digress...back to what I wanted to write about. It was Sunday afternoon and I was itching for something to do. Tired of watching Ross do yet another video project, I suggested going to Jake's Pizza in Montevideo. I had liked the pizza there the last time we all went. I even offered to treat. So we head the 21 miles from his place to Monte. Of course, it was closed. So was the Pizza Ranch and a couple of other restaurants. We ended up at a Chinese buffet. It wasn't too bad. Then we had noticed a sign for mini golf. I don't know about you, but this region isn't exactly swarming with mini golf courses. We decided to play. Monte's course is a medieval-themed one. Nothing really fancy, but the decorum is cool.

Now I don't have a technique when it comes to mini-golfing. I'm just lucky if I can hit the ball and not have it bounce into the rocks. Ross even felt the need to give me pointers on my swing. C'mon it's just mini-golf. I'm not going for the green jacket or the glory, I just want to get through 18 holes. Let's just say my score was in the 70s. A couple of holes I just gave up on. But it was fun for a Sunday afternoon. I'll have to go again sometime.
