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!

OK,'s another birthday, but celebrating living for 75 years is a big deal. This is the first day of your 76th year as Hal B. likes to say. Hope you have a great day, and amazing year. Where is Fishers, IN? We should get-together sometime. Akron, OH isn't that far away...or is it? God bless you and your family. HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Drop me a note, it's easy!!!!!

Sandy, Hope you are having a great day. Somehow birthdays just don't seem to have the same punch they had 50 years ago. I suppose they are mile stones we would rather not watch go by, but I've always considered the alternative unacceptable. Well, enough philosophy. :-) Hope you have a wonderful day, and a very, very, very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Aug 27, 2018 at 11:18 AM

6 days to get ready, 1 to get set.............

Happy Birthday Dennis. Hope you have a great and amazing day. Go fly a plane! I've have always wanted to have a radio controlled airplane. Not sure what I'm waiting for, since they are a lot more affordable than 40 years ago. My dad tried it once. The plane crashed, and that was the end of it. Sad. Maybe I should buy a drone. Oh well....God bless you and your family, and have a HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

'morning John...HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope you have a great day. Still selling home theater's? We are thinking about doing an Airbnb in our farm house. No theater, but we'd have to get TV in every bedroom, and there's five! Plus the living room. Yikes! God bless you on your birthday and throughout the coming year. !!!!HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

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!
