Just for an interesting fact...

Eileen O'Krafka Still Working at 91 ROSTOCK, Ontario Eileen Eileen O'Krafka, who'll be 92 this summer, is Canada's oldest working Postmaster. Five days a week she sorts mail into the 68 post office boxes, collects outgoing mail, sells money orders, weighs packages and keeps the books balanced.

She works out of a small post office in a former general store she and her late husband, Joe, bought back in 1969. Located in the tiny village of Rostock, Ontario, roughly 50 kilometres east of Kitchener and 150 kilometres west of Toronto, the general store has been closed since 1990
