Culleoka, TN (WSMV) - Roger Smith is happy when a peach falls from a tree in his neighborhood. A pocket knife and a peach seed created the path that led this small town Tennessee man to the White House.

“I just like to doodle, I’d be lost without a pocket knife”.

Doodle isn’t even close to what he can do with a pocket knife. If you don’t think so, go ahead and try. He’ll give you artistic advice-- Like if you want to carve a rabbit, just carve away everything that isn’t a rabbit

From his Culleoka shed, south of Columbia, he’s built Noah’s Ark out of peach seeds. A possum, a duck a butterfly come along for the ride.

Play ball his peach and players 2 inches tall.

Set up from right field to third base. If he needs to go to the bullpen, he has plenty of reserves. For Black Histoty Month his Fairfield Four sing In perfect peach pit pitch. Hallelujah to Roger.

Roger’s creations have been part of folk art exhibits that travel the world and one year they helped decorate the White House Christmas Tree.
