Mr. Fowler was my personal cop in high school. He and his colleagues even caught me and a friend wrapping his house once. Well, we were wrapping his son, actually. Our story was we were feeling bad and came back to clean it up. He thought it was a grand idea. We got to clean up about thirty rolls. Mr. Fowler was a good old fashioned peace officer, he was a good influence, and I will not forget him soon, obviously. Mr. Fowler is my Tunnels2towers honoree and it is an honor to do it.
