Realtor Casey Lewis with Cearnal Realtors has been waiting for a good while to deploy his dinomite marketing strategy — and he finally did in Granbury last week.

As most everyone knows, we are all about The Vacation over here. I mean, we’re pretty obvious about it. But over on our parent site, CandysDirt.com, we have a weekly feature called the Wednesday WTF. This week, we’re not talking about the charming abodes we see on SecondShelters.com.
