It began over 30 years ago, as a romance between a Kansas boy and Florida girl on
a sunny beach in Florida.
A move to the mid-west and many anniversaries later, Wendell asked himself a question
like most men, what do I do this year? After long thoughts and planning Wendell decided
to build Helen a Palm tree sculpture, that would remind her of a home long ago.
He knew it would have to be built sturdy to hold up too the harsh weather, and last
through rough times like any relationship must. A sculpture of steel was made. A
real surprise to the one he loves, and a conversation piece for everyone's enjoyment.
"Build me one", was a common statement heard by Wendell & Helen, so they did.
