I didn’t write a post yesterday. Instead, I filmed a virtual tour of our new house and you probably already saw it on Facebook. If, for some strange reason, you are not following Tenor Dad on Facebook, here is a link to the page so that you can see the video and click “like” and […]

How Do We Learn to Shower?

My wife decided to clean the shower curtain the other day, which included tossing out the old liner and laundering the opaque, flowered, outer curtain with the rest of the laundry.  Since she was in charge of the lining, the shiny new clear plastic curtain was up immediately.  Since I am in charge of the […]
