My Man Dan Has A Blog, Dan's Digressions

Dan the Man, my husband, has started his own blog. It is called "Dan's Digressions".

I can never for the life of me remember the rules concerning quotation marks... Does the punctuation go inside or outside of the quotation mark? Ugh, drives me nuts...

Anyway, please check out Dan's Digressions. If you grew-up on a ranch, or have ever worked cattle, you will like his stories. Danny is a 5th generation rancher and is wanting to record his family's memoir. Believe me, the Manvilles have a whole book full of adventuresome stories! Danny's dad was a true rancher in every since of the word. I think he started riding horses and working cattle when he was two years old. Danny bought his dad a recorder so he could record some of his recollections. I really look forward to Bob's stories. I've heard some, but I know there are several more that I haven't heard.

Here are a few pictures I had on my laptop that I could share of the Manville Ranch in Walden, Colorado.

This is actually a picture taken on BLM land adjacent to the
Manville Ranch where they ran cattle.

Look at all these horseshoes!
This picture was taken in one of the barns at the ranch.

Here is Chris, Thomas, Chris' friend Travis and Skyler hiding behind Chris
in a restored buggy originally owned by Danny's great grandparents.

Up in the loft of one of the barns at the ranch.
Look at all these horse collars.
I should have counted all of them.
I think there were at least 50 or so.

I hope that you'll enjoy Dan Digressions and share it with people who you think will enjoy his stories.

  1. The punctuation goes inside the quotes in newspaper style. I always did it the opposite before I started working for the paper because I wanted my punctuation to be free.
