Shane’s Flying Disc Show

You may have been re-directed to my photography page if you were looking for Shane’s Flying Disc Show.  Dream Weaver just blew me away.  I could only get so much help from Go Daddy before they refused to help me get through the hard parts of web pages, like connecting FTP sites with Dreamweaver and Go Daddy.

I am utilizing Facebook, FlickR, Youtube, Vimeo and WordPress to bring you Shane’s Flying Disc Show and Shane K. Smith Photography.  I have been a photographer and Flying Disc Thrower since elementary School.  I made my first money with a camera in High School and my first money with a Frisbee in 1978. I also made money by teaching Tennis since I was 13.  I am writing this in 2020.

I am going to set my menus up on my web pages so that Shane’s Flying Disc Show comes up first.  Then all my other stories will fill in alphabetically.

Thanks for showing up in here!

Please make time to click on follow and fill out the email alert part near the bottom of the page. Share on Facebook or other sites. I put some tunes at the bottom of each page. Please come back often. I get motivated knowing someone is out there!

As of 20200514, I temporarily deactivated Facebook so I could concentrate on this project. I’ll be back on Facebook soon. I am shooting for a return to Facebook by June 12, 2020.

To get to the best of Shane’s Flying Disc Show please find me in the menu above.


South Sliders

My goal is to have everything in one place in case of the Facebook apocalypse. Now this is a little tricky but I am doing the first couple of South Sliders to draw your attention to my page.  Anything that goes in a slider is also in an album with over 16,000 photos. Here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/shanesflyingdiscshow/albums/72157600403970854

Then I do a 180 round house kick and use the Flickr albums as embedded slideshow panels because I can’t afford the web space on Word Press. Some of the Flickr viewers have between 500 to 16,000 photos in them.  That overheats the internet and if you are in an album that should have more photos in it, click around on the viewer and it will take you right to flickr to finish off!

That’s easy for you to say! It took me ten years to find the slideshow button! So We can use two styles. One way you can go through our photos one by one manually. Or I can do an occasional slide show with it.


Here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/shanesflyingdiscshow/albums/72157600403970854

South Sliders is a little tricky and takes some finesse on the phone especially.  I was finally able to get my web page to load on just a telephone connection.  I couldn’t break into  Wal-Mart’s wi fi so I used my phone’s connection.  When you see South Sliders a couple of Slide Shows will move the photos every five seconds or you can push one of those dots to get to another photo.  The FlickR slider is touchy on the phone.  I found if I barely touch on the far-right side in the middle, the arrows come up and I can surf each slider with my thumbs.  If I bump it too hard it takes me to Flickr.

South Rowan Memorial 1973 to 1977

I’m about to take on a monumental task.  This will take me awhile to get up to speed with the information I have.  I’ve predicted a shift in Social venues for many years and I have decided to take control of my own page so I can direct it wherever I want.  This menu will change because I’m doing it on the fly!

My information is everything I have collected from reunions and hear say on Facebook.  I even created a book once for those of us that have passed on and trusting my information I added Frank White to the group or the dearly departed.  Frank surprised us at one of our re-unions and gave me the honor of signing my book!

I’ll be using the key words RIP, R.I.P. in our Facebook group so I can find conversations better when I need to do a search. Let’s not confuse our 1973 to 1977 group with a group called South Rowan Memorial.  Over 200 of our members belong to the South Memorial group.

Thanks, Shane

I will begin to re-build this section from within our group in my media section.

I have begun a photo section, but remember photos are not always available.

RIP Dale Funderburke. Everyone says it was sudden. November 2020.


From Cherry Power Funderburke. “My Heart is broken, within a matter of hours our life changed forever. On Thanks Giving day my Husband Dale , Gained his wings and is now resting in the arms of God. There are no words to describe all the emotions we are feeling at this time. And lord knows I have no idea we’re to go from here or how to do life without him. Please pray for God to wrap his loving arms around our 6 Boys ,4 Granddaughters a Nephew and Niece. His Brother Dave ,And give them the comfort and love they need to get through this life with out him.”

RIP Carl Wilkerson

Carl Wilkerson passed on in November 2020. He was a relative of our Pam Jordan. However he was friends to hundreds of South Students. I took this article from the Salisbury Post and Susan Shinn.

An icon of China Grove:’ Former China Grove Elementary students remember custodian Carl Wilkerson

By Susan Shinn Turner
For the Salisbury Post

Thinking back on your school days, you may recall a favorite teacher or two. But for students at China Grove Elementary School, no one was as universally beloved as our custodian, Carl Wilkerson.

Wilkerson, 85, died Sunday after many years of declining health.

Wilkerson worked at the school from the 1960s to the 1990s, retiring after 32 years of service with the school system. After working at school all day, he cleaned at night at businesses around town, including First Union National Bank and China Grove Drug Co. He also worked at Cress Laundromat for 20 years. He rented an apartment in a house across from the business. He never drove a car, but folks around town were happy to give him rides.

Wilkerson worked for three principals: the late John Rudisell, Dr. Alan King, and Dr. Bob Bloodworth.

“I loved Carl to death,” King said Monday. “I was at China Grove Elementary for 11 years. He was there when I got there, and he was there when I left. He always made my day. He was positive and upbeat, and he always had a smile on his face. He loved the children. He treated me with so much more respect than I needed or deserved.”

King remembered the April Fool’s Day when he and Wilkerson switched roles. Wilkerson delivered the morning announcements, while King took up a broom and started sweeping. Even though it was just pretend, Wilkerson took his temporary role seriously, and he was nervous. King told him afterward he did just fine.

Early in her career, teacher Sandra Rogers thought she may be moving to Charlotte when her husband got a transfer. They later changed plans, but not before Wilkerson left a bean pot with an arrangement of artificial fruit in her car.

“I still have that bean pot,” Rogers said Monday. “Every time I look at it, I think of Carl. There is no way to express what a kind, gentle, and loving person he was. He was a true gentleman.”

For whatever reason, a child throwing up at school was often commonplace.

“I’d call him on the radio and I’d say, ‘Carl, we’ve got an accident,’ and he’d say, ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you,’” King said. “One day I asked him why he thanked me, and he said, ‘I’m just happy to have a job and happy to help out.’ I never heard him complain about his job.”

Carole Yost Parrott was one of those students who threw up once at school.

“He never made you feel bad about it,” Parrott said Monday. “He said, ‘It’s OK, honey. It’s OK.’ He was just happiness. Here I am 52 years old, and he is one of the people who stands out to me in elementary school. He was just as important as any teacher or principal who was there.”

Michael Brotherton agrees.

“Everybody knew Carl,” he said Monday. “He was an icon of China Grove.”

He added, “He was one great guy. He was a humble and loving person. He’d ask for volunteers to run the ice cream store and we’d all get excited about that. Everybody just loved him.”

Wilkerson was known for sometimes buying ice cream for students who didn’t have any money, and being a listening ear when they needed him.

“I was just a skinny little black man,” he said once. “They just wanted to talk to me about things, everyday problems. I told them to pray over it and take it to the good Lord.”

A Facebook page called The Grove is filled with hundreds of tributes to Wilkerson. Many former students visited him when he was in local nursing homes.

John Freeze knew Wilkerson’s faith ran deep. “You better be ready to hear about Jesus!” he wrote.

Others wrote of Wilkerson’s sweetness and kind and caring nature.

“Everybody needs a Carl,” Su Krotchko wrote.

“He is the perfect example of how a life quietly lived for good can affect the world,” Becky Morris wrote. “He worked hard but always had a kind word and a smile for everyone. We all remember him with affection. Ripple or butterfly effect — whatever. Carl made this world a better place.”

Caroline Marshall found out Wilkerson was at Liberty Commons because her beautician’s mother was there, too. She remembered Wilkerson, and began to visit him, taking him treats such as pudding and Vienna sausages.

“I know I was not the only person going to see him,” she said Monday.

Wilkerson loved getting cards and visits. At one point several years ago, his doctor had to limit the amount of visitors.

Marshall, who is an artist, would like to make a tribute to Wilkerson in calligraphy and give to the school.

“I’m going to pursue it,” she said.

As of Monday, others were discussing additional ideas about how to best memorialize Wilkerson.

Wilkerson was one of three brothers born to the late Willie and Irene Wilkerson.

In his own way, Wilkerson, too, was a teacher.

“He may have been a custodian,” Gene Doby wrote, “but he taught his kids at China Grove Elementary School a lot. He was a true educator.””

Special Needs, Homeless or Pan Handling Superstars

Of course, there may be a deeper story.  One day I plan to hand out a little money to some tragically homeless to document life on the median.  There is a big difference from those that need it and those that don’t.  Unless they were connected to the elderly couple living in their car at Sheetz for the day then I’ll probably get my Godsmacks or a visit from the Karma Queen for thinking this. Pan handling is lucrative and there are turf wars in Winston.  The homeless are getting aggressive and mean.  I witnessed this guy slap a car and run screaming after the couple that must have said something smart when they went by.  He was screaming BITCH, WHORE…the usual and standing in traffic shouting COME BACK HERE BITCH Come On!  He looked like he was more on steroids than meth. He glared into the car windows using his female partner and his obviously pregnant dog as distraction.  I thought they had the dog on a short leash for the median.  But she was so well behaved she didn’t move off the block with hundreds of cars passing.  But this good-looking couple were doing sprints on a very familiar cross way at the Lexington Winston-Salem border line. I mean running to the vehicles like athletes.  I figured it was “Drug Money Day” as they don’t have to walk too far to the drug store! But my rage at this perfectly healthy couple was shattered when I saw a guy with two wooden legs and palsy hobble from a car facing the couple into Sheetz.  But I couldn’t bring myself to aim my camera at him.  If they become regulars I will know. I was trying to justify in my mind why a couple in this great of shape were panhandling. A closer look on the female I can see she has bit her nails to the bone. There are two very attractive twenty something girls working the grocery store and Academy street near Old Salem.  I just haven’t had the right opportunity to do the right story.  For there are some truly helpless people out there. I also noticed a hooptie looking vehicle with a temporary tag on it.  But I didn’t shoot it.

I’ve seen towns where the homeless grab your wipers and wash your windows whether you want them to or not.   I didn’t see any pandering tags.  All I could make out on the good-looking woman was a fit bit and a watch.  This male is going to peer in to the family of some town officials before long, then they just won’t pass them by anymore. I saw a deputy from Davidson blow by without even blinking not  long after the shouting incident and blocking of traffic.

Jump in if you can help me tell the pan handlers where to go for help.  But chances are slim they will ask for any because the money is too good at rush hour!


Rumors are Whoopie may have lost her care taker. I missed a chance to buy her a coke as we past right by each other. Our paths cross frequently.

Whoopie’s Bike

This is Whoopie’s Bike. I have seen her with three different bikes.  Or she modifies her bikes. On close inspection you can see the chain is off track. She is usually seen pushing her bike.

 People from Winston-Salem aren’t sure if she is homeless or if she just likes to walk her bike all over a large town.  I am on the same path as her.  Tonight 20201130 I saw her sleeping in a booth at a local restaurant.  I couldn’t bring myself to aim my camera at her.  But her bike rocks.  I don’t know what the special tape means.  The monkey seems to be the current fashion statement!  She used to have a special doll that road on the front handle bars.

We still call him Sammy! He is the only photographer among all of us that has been flown to college sports events, been given his own office and run of the stadiums! At one of our re-unions I was set to do some portraits and my lights failed. Sam Roberts saved the day as he pulled out a few strobes out of his bag of tricks. This was a fun re-Union. Bill Scott showed up after most of you had left. He came straight from a pro music gig. You can see the time on the clock says 12 something am and Shane is the designated driver! Sammy stayed to take the shot. Sammy is one of two people that ever asked me if I needed help carrying all my equipment back to the truck! Why Hell Yes I do! Thanks! Scott Smith, the lucky guy that married Donna Phillips is the other one. Thank You, Thank You Very much!

William and Judy are just too cool for school! Everything they do is golden and thoughtful. This post isn’t over as I will be posting previous videos on their Christmas collection and their trains. I bet there aren’t many people you know that have a miniature train in their yard. For now I leave you with this cool before and after slider and a quote from William.. There are almost 35 years between photos but Judy makes 60ish look like 40ish! From William Deal. “Thirty-two years later: Same location, same time of year, same girl, same red sweater (the one I gave her for Christmas in 1974), different red two-seater. She says RED is her color…”
