the tags on the following pictures are self-explanatory. There are several versions and comments of how this "fob" came to be carved from a peach pitt. Check the directory of this blog for other information. These pictures were submitted by Michael Kirkham, son of Donald Robinson "Bob" Kirkham. The peach stone originally belonged to Lott Kirkham, father of Bob Kirkham. It was carved by George Kirkham, father of Lott. (Incidentally, has anyone tried to carve a peach pit lately, and with such perfection?)
Michael added the following message:
"Lott's stone is hanging in a hutch in his last living child, Bob Kirkham's home in Shelley, Idaho. If you drop by his home I'm sure you could see it and they would appreciate the visit"
