It was so good to see dear friends, Eva and Danny Casstevens, at the Downtown Farmer’s Market in Mocksville on Wednesday. They, along with bass player, Dean Casstevens, perform there each week.  If you haven’t been to our local farmers market, it’s a must. I came home with a lot of good homegrown veggies.  All the vendors are so nice and helpful and the music is a big plus.
