Comments:

Posted some pictures of a 54' handicapped accessible ramp we constructed at The Botzum Farmstead in the Spring of 2013. Took about two and a half weeks, and lots of sweat and splinters. We didn't want it sticking 54' out into the yard so we wrapped it around a 150 year old apple tree, that is still producing great apples. They would work well in a grocery store, but they sure taste good...they just aren't very pretty!

It has been another crazy busy summer, both at The Botzum Farmstead, and at Winkelmann Design & Construction. We'll share some news a little bit later this fall. The farmstead has 8 weddings to go, and we are about to start a new home for another client.

Great fun!

School Story:

I know we're all shared lots of stories in this section.

One regular event that just popped into my mind was frequent lunch runs down to the McDonalds on Lincoln Way East. 15 cent hamburgers, 10 cent fries, and a 25 cent chocolate milk shake, with three or four friends in my dad's '56 Olds 98, with three spoke chrome spinners, and scarlet and blue 'A' pillows in the back window, and Chuck Barry blaring out of the speakers! Great fun!

Was just thinking of all the great football games at School Field, and of course, basketball games in the Gym...sock hope too. Those Friday night games were such a hoot. Great friends, yelling our throats day, winning :-) and losing :-( and then crusin' down to Lujan's. Didn't get any better then that!

Well...Memorial Day was a 'no electronics day' in the Winkelmann Family, so I didn't get to wish you a Happy Birthday on THE DAY. So, now you get to continue the celebration for another day with a big: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you had a great day, and that you will have an amazing year. God bless you and your family. (Hi Jim!)
Here's the happy couple at Christmas last year.

I'm telling you, we just did this...and I've had my foot out draggin' all the way. Doesn't work. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALICE!!! Hope you had a great and wonderful Birthday day. I just looked up where Grawn is. You're way up there. Love Michigan. Used to stay at Glen Lake and climb Sleeping Bear Sand Dune. Beautiful area up there. What took you to Grawn?

Hey Diane...HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I was going to say, you can't have a birthday today, because I'm still celebrating mine from last Friday. Just kidding. I mean just kidding about not being able to have a birthday today. You can go right ahead. Celebrate. Hope you had a great day. Are having a great day! God bless you today and every day throughout the coming year.

Happy, happy Birthday Edith! I was just wondering what you were retired from. Some news would be nice. I think I'm working more now than when I retired eight years ago. It's good to be doing what I love. My architecture always was rewarding, I just didn't think it would last so long. Time flies. Hope you have, or had, a great day. Have a great year! God bless you and your family! Here's the latest addition to ours. 1 1/2 year old Teddy.

Whew...I almost missed it. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Sandy. They say we are getting wiser rather than aging. I hope it starts to show soon, 'cause the aging part I'm keeping up with, I'm just waiting for the wisdom part to catch up :-) Hope you have a great day. God bless you in the coming year.

This picture is looking out to the North Meadow at The Botzum Farmstead, where most of our brides get married. The abundant grass is growing about an inch a day, so there is much time spent on our '57 Ford Tractor, pulling around a 6' Land Pride finish mower. Very relaxing, with much time to solve the worlds problems!
