1999 Lawnmower name would be Farris's out on the edge of town where Dad usually bought the big red snapper mowers and probably hand mowers after Daye Hardward went out of business?

Thanks, Mary! Actually that would be Faris Implement (http://www.farispolaris.com) which in my day was still located downtown. The building where they were located then was torn down in 1967 to make way for the bank parking lot. See New Vienna Bank pictures for a picture of their downtown location.
