As you have probably deduced from that headline, today is my uncle's 90th birthday.
Unfortunately, my uncle, the Rev. Robert H. Flood, died 35 years ago, a few months shy of his 55th birthday -- a milestone I myself recently reached.
In addition to being a Roman Catholic priest, my uncle was a published poet.
I've mentioned him before, here, here and here.
And I'll be writing more about him this week.
