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!

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.

Sherrie, doesn't it seem like we just did this. Gotta figure out a way to slow things down a bit. YIKES! I hope you have a great and wonderful Birthday, a HAPPY, HAPPY day! I don't think I ever asked, but: what took you to Alamogordo, NM? Career? Marriage? Travel? Oh well, would be fun to know a little bit more of what your life has been like. God bless your special day!

Mar 27, 2018 at 1:17 PM

Well...I'm sure I'm not the first, and, hopefully, won't be the last to wish you a very Happy Birthday today! So...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! I don't think I ever asked, if I did, sorry for the repeat: what ever took you to Wilder, ID? other than getting far away from SB. Hope you have a great day, and enjoy something special, a movie, a pizza, wine, a whole bunch of favorites. God bless you and your coming year. Attached is picture of latest addition to our family at the farm. Our son's 7 pound Shih-tzu named Teddy. Cute as a button and fitting in just fine. Have a great day, and...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Well Larry...sorry, but here it is again: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope you had and are having a great day. How did you end up in Sutton's Bay, MI? Looks like a beautiful spot. Are you near the water? When I was between 6 and 12, we lived in Detroit, and visited Glenn Lake and Sleeping Bear many times. I love Northern Michigan. Have a great birthday. God bless you and your family! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

Hey Larry...HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope you have a great day. Any grand-kids? Never heard of Lake Mary. Looks like a nice place to live. Probably much better weather than NE Ohio. God bless you and your family. Wishing you many, many more Happy Birthdays! How 'bout some more news? and pictures?

Mar 13, 2018 at 11:59 AM

Yikes...seems like we just did this. I guess a trip around the sun at 18 miles/second goes faster than I thought. It's Happy Birthday time again. Hope you had a nice day I was going to send this, this morning, but ran out of time getting ready for church...especially with the time change. Do you guys still do it in Indiana? Daylight Savings Time. Humm-bug. Anyway, hope you had a nice day. Thanks for your service in the US Army. We love our Vets. God bless you and your family. BTW what does semi-retired mean? Oh ya......HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

Well...here it is! Every now and then I think I'll just skip my birthday, but so far it has had no affect on the aging process. Go figure! I guess the right thing to do is embrace the event and celebrate the fact that we gain wisdom along with the age going up. Blah, blah, blah. Hope you have a great and wonderful day. From your note it sounds like you guys start celebrating and just don't stop for several weeks. It's all good! God bless you and your family and all those birthdays. 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!
