    Notes 
    • Albert “Al” Dani was born on April 7, 1905, on the Cooper Ranch on the Little Sur River. He attended eight years of school at the Cooper School on the Hunt Ranch.

      Al was a cowboy first and foremost. He enjoyed ranching, cowboying and working with horses. He was good at “gentling” and “rough breaking” horses. They were also good at “breaking” him. He had two broken ankles among other injuries to prove it.

      On February 4, 1935, Al married Neva V. King. After working at the Hunt Ranch, the McQuerry Ranch, farming with Vernon Holmes, and numerous other jobs, Al and Neva moved to King City where Al went to work fo the Heirs Estate of Thomas Doud Ranches. Al and Neva had moved so many times in the first five years of their marriage that Neva told Al, “If you move again, Margaret (10 mos.) and I are staying here!” Al must have believed her as he “stayed on” and acted foreman and superintendent for the “Douds” for thirty-five years. Albert Ivon “Butch” Dani was born to the couple on November 10, 1945.

      Al loved to tease, tell stories and outright lies. One of the stories he told children who sucked their thumbs was sucking his thumb was the reason the end “rotted off”. (Actually, his rope “popped” over his thumb and neatly removed the end of it)! He also ”doused” Uncle tony Brazil’s nose with Ben-Gay assuring poor Uncle Tony that it would cure his stuffy nose. Al loved hot peppers. When asked if they were really hot, he usually replied, “Just a little warm.” Numerous individuals can attest that his straight face was not quite the complete truth.

      Al loved “kids” and was a big tease, but he was also a giving man. A young woman with children ran into his pickup. Because she was upset, Al told her to forget it. His pickup had so many dents that it’s not clear how many times this happened. It is known that sometimes he gave to strangers and neglected “his own”.

      He died on the Ides of March in 1975. Al’s children and grandchildren hope he’s not into too much mischief in heaven. God Bless. [10]
