Now I’ve heard everything

Did you hear the story about the couple who divorced in Michigan? Reportedly, when dividing up their resources, she got their home and he was left with the bar they owned in town. Designed like an old prospectors mine, it was called “The Shaft.” That’s one time the man could legally say what he got left with. Last week I was driving in Eastern Ellis County and my passenger noticed the white lines on Hwy 287. I checked them out too. They were about three feet apart and ran for miles in both directions. When I exited in Waxahachie, they were also on the service road, only they were two feet apart. What could these things be? My mind immediately went wacky. I first thought it was a leaking paint truck, but that idea soon turned laughable. Of course, when all else fails, blame it on aliens. If the bullet train thinks we’re gullible enough for their much-ado choo-choo, then maybe aliens are scoping the area for runways. Lane Grayson, our Ennis rep as a county commissioner fired an answer. “It is a pre-icing treatment applied by TxDot,” he said. Really? Icing? Who is making a cake?
