    Background: Grannie Hendrikje, 105-years-old and still going strong, turns out for the Christening of the latest addition to her family tree, at Ter Apel, Holland, November 9.

    The ceremony, held in the famous Kloosterchurch, was for her great-great-grandson, Richard Veldman.

    Grannie Hendrikje (Mrs. Hendrikje Smit-Meyering) is used to Christenings. She has had seven children of her own, two of whom are still alive, nine grand-children are still living.

    Grannie is a bit vague about the number of great-grand-children: she believes "about 40".
