NEW HAVEN — Lucien Paquette sat back in a wooden chair at his kitchen table last week and laughed. He was telling a story about a phone conversation he’d recently had with a doctor who asked him for his birth date.
“Eight, fourteen, sixteen,” Paquette had responded.
The doctor was puzzled, and not amused.
“I had to specify, it was 1916,” Paquette said, chuckling about the confusion.
