Buon Compleanno, Charles Thomas …

Amici:

11-19-82 … Stella brat #2, Charles (not Charlie) Thomas Stella was born. He was an honor student from Port Washington High School on through Albany and Baruch (where he earned his MBA while working full-time) … he runs marathons and broke his neck on a beach with one of them dopey boards (whatever they're called) … he’s a good boy and his 6’4”, thin frame makes it obvious he doesn’t take after me. Happy Birthday, figlio mio.

Charles Thomas asks his daughter (my granddaughter): Who’s Your Daddy?

 

Eye of the tiger, head of steel, the Chuck-a-babe (and his bro and sis) …

 

Our family favorite picture of the Stella brats … (left to right, Dustin, Nicole & Charles) ...

 
The marathon man, running with his Aunt Adele’s picture (and her dog, Lillyhammer) on his shirt …

 

Charles’ sister (Nicole) and brother-in-law (Anthony) ... the picture I forgot to add to his sister’s birthday collection …

 

Momma Stella’s crew …

Who’s their Daddy?

 
Buon Compleanno, Boyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! You’re 31 and I’m 350 … it’s a beautiful thing.
