She and her husband sometimes travelled to nearby Marseilles where, at the Phocéen restaurant, they treated themselves to seafood, a glass of white wine, and bread and butter. Unlike her husband she did not enjoy pastries, but she did like creams ( crèmes ), cakes and in particular quatre-quarts ( pound cake ), and vanilla ice cream, which already existed back then.  At "retirement age sixty years ago" [at age 60?] she broke her ankle and apart from that had never been ill.  She continued cycling until her hundredth birthday.  Around her hundredth year she fractured her leg but recovered quickly and was able to walk again.
