Christmas eve was my oldest son, Billy's birthday. He is now 21! Wow! I just cannot believe that. When I look at him I am just in awe of how he has grown up so quickly. And he has GROWN up literally. He is 6'2 and wears a size 13 shoe. I have to say that Billy was my difficult child. Even from the very beginning. I had a very difficult labor. He came into the world causing me great pain and continued to be a pain! LOL! No, I am just kidding. He was a little stubborn and bull headed as a child. He did not like to listen to mom at all. I was very young when I had him, so both of us had a lot to learn thru the years. However, he was so good in school and his teachers always loved him. They always said how sweet and helpful he was! Most the time I had to double check with them to make sure they had the right kid. All in all I have to say that I am very proud of him. He has grown up to be a very responsible young man. He has done a great job living out of the house. He pays his bills on time and keeps his place very clean. He does like to party a little too much and I just pray that he will outgrow that very soon.
Here he is a Christmas with one of his gifts. It is called a decision maker. You ask a question and swing the metal ball. Then the magnet will catch and give you an answer. Those boys had so much fun with that. They were asking crazy questions and then would just die laughing at the answers. It is so fun to see them still acting like kids. Billy loves Christmas and he is like a five year old all over again!
Here he is showing off his chin hair. Ever since I can remember he has been so anxious about getting facial hair. So funny. He thinks he is a man now. He even told us that we have to call him Bill now- not Billy or little Billy or Billy Randal or Bud. All those kid like names are out the door now. Well that will just be to hard for me. Happy Birthday Billy! I love you!

Happy birthday Billy!

To answer your question, no it does not have a bread board inside. I found it at an antique store and I love it. It's funny you mentioned it because I thought it looked kind of old and shabby and perhaps I shouldn't have it in my kitchen any more! Glad you like it! Maybe you could show pictures of yours!
