La doyenne de Sainte-Anne (Martinique), surnommée « Manman Doudou », vient de célébrer son 107ème anniversaire. Elle est née le 21 septembre 1900. L'année dernière elle était encore capable d’entonner avec entrain quelques vieilles – très vieilles - chansons et se prêter au jeu des « tim-tim » (devinettes). Elle est capable de parler de Napoléon Bonaparte comme si elle avait vécu à la même époque que lui.
Cette année, elle est un peu fatiguée. Samedi dernier, nous avons trinqué à sa santé avec ses fils, sa petite-fille, et trois de ses arrière-petits-enfants.

The dean of Sainte-Anne (Martinique), nicknamed "Manman Doudou", has just celebrated her 107th birthday. She was born on September 21st, 1900. Last year she was still capable of intoning with spirit some old - very old - songs and to play "tim-tim" (traditional riddles). She is able to tell about Napoleon Bonaparte, as if she had lived at the same time that he.This year, she is a little tired. Last Saturday, we drank with her two sons, her granddaughter and three of her great-grandsons.
