Bonus - When we git together with Bo to do something…as in "Bonus are fixin' to go dancin' at the Horseshoe in a little while! Wanna go?"
Pooling - Something we git together and do in are millionaire friends' backyards--the ones that put in a pool with all that new money instead of buying a new boat…as in "Hey! Bonus are fixin' to go pooling over at Kassi's house in a little while! Wanna go?"
Pugh Clause - Something Bonus wrote into are leases that says that the drilling in are backyards is not allowed to out-stink the smell of Boudreaux's dog pen.
Workover - What Bonus do to them landmen and flippers that come around here with ridiculous stories about how are shale here ain't as thick as there shale thar so that that is why are upfront money here was less than there's over thar. As in, "Hey! Bonus are fixin' to workover that landman over thar, but we gotta hurry cause we're fixin' to pooling in little while!" Course now, when we git through with the workover, them boys' underware have done violated the Pugh Clause and we git 'em throwed off our land!
Horizontal Drillin' - Well, shucks! It warn't be right to talk out loud about what that is. Bonus told them girls not to tell folks that we drove 'em out to Elm Grove after the dance th'other nite so's that we could witness us a little horizontal drillin'.
After all the serious stuff on this site, you all have this Illinois "flatlander" LOL!!! As I'm watching the play from afar, I just have to believe some of the landmen and O&G people probably look at you all that way. They have no idea what they're in for!! Keep makin' me laugh. Thanks, Cannie
percent - like new truck scent, the scent of a new leather purse as in "My Ma likes her new pursent and my Pa likes his new trucksent, and that there Phew clause they got will help keep it thata way for awhile, I figger."
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
