Beryle

Beryle (100), on her front porch with her dog ‘Petit’. “I was born in Princes Town in 1915. Yesterday, my doctor asked me what was the remedy for my good health. I mean I hardly need glasses; I don't need a hearing aid. I said to him, I'm not married! My father, on the other hand, was married three times. He was Portuguese. My mother was Trinidadian - half Negro, half Chinese. I have half brothers and sisters of different races. My mixture is so rare that people don't ask about it.”
