John Mahler (1959) Sorry to see Lowell Nutter's name in memorial. In the late 50's we had a scruffy apt. by Peter and Paul. Lowell had a single shot 12 gauge shotgun. The pheasant limit was three roosters daily. Lowell would take just three shells with him and we had six pheasants for the week. Goodbye to Lowell. (Where are Lyle Louie and Leroy?).
