Why is the door to the basement always locked? The answers are in Dad’s Bedtime-Tales Newsletter 281.
  • There Will Be Consequences • Runaway Bill sleeps in too late up in the hayloft of a farmer’s barn. Oh, man, there are serious consequences to not getting up on time.

  • He’s Cute When He Lies • Two dads grin when they discuss how their sons try and lie. However, Mark gets a buzz when Harvey tells him how he knows his son is lying.
