Does Granny's farm hold Texas tea?
WHAT HARRY SAYS: First of all, ask her not to rush to sell. If the oil is there, it will be there next week or next year. I suggest that she retain a lawyer to look into the possibility of other potential buyers. The fact that speculators are willing to pay for her rights may create interest among some of the major oil companies. A good lawyer may be able to start a bidding war for those rights. If oil is discovered on her sister's property, it will increase the competition for your grandmother's rights. If that happens, your grandmother may yet be a female version of Jed Clampett.
