...Bim-bar-toad, Ficken Wicken, Cam-shaft, Weazer, Bino(ouch!),Hoon Dog, Dritz, Toad, Chez, Emmet, Chocolet Chip Cookie... whew !!! hahahaha.... funny stuff!Avonmore was a great place to grow up. Lots of activity. Some great nick names - Nookie, Ringneck, Crash, Shadow, Skitchain, Pivich, Mutt, Hump, Shamu, BooBoo, Clucky, Tintson, etc. It was definitely lots of fun. It would have been a real TV hit today.

I would rattle the pipes on the Harley or screech the L-60's on the van for all of you guys sitting on the steps of the Polish club. I would come around the block again thru all of the tire smoke for a crowd of cheers! Then had to high tail it out of town before the cops started on me. Good times back then.

i was from edmon but spent most time in Avonmore as my grandmother was the town seamstress. D. painter, rookie, jo mike, tames, johnall, mutt, skitz, & many more were townies we all knew. toehead & stacey W from saltsburg. Killi, George E., & Pete W. from salina. great time (1970's)& great place to grow up in. i was the only guy in the 3 smith brothers that played football & basketball with many of aforementioned. festival still happens the third weekend or so in september. thanks to a lifelong resident, cheryl smith, that led a 5 person parade along the old parade route back in the 1990's. soon afterward, a movement to revive the festival began. KUDOS to all that post about this wonderful western Pa. town. come back for the festival and say "HI" and support the little town that did.

Hey Melissa, found this post years later...was just telling my daughter about Fuzzy and how we ended up with Jaybird's dog. I hear a good Polish boy bought my mom's house. Avonmore stays with me always.
