All good things must to come to an end including my career as a Postal Worker. I was hired
on July/03/73 and I retired on Feb/14/09.
It worked 28 years at the Toronto Exchange Office which was and still is responsible for incoming
international mail. I enjoyed the variety of work there and the company of many oldtimers. Most of them
have left this section or retired.
I exercise at a Brampton Community Center three days a week for an hour. It's great
to get my proper rest and bike to the gym whenever I want.
Not only do I get the full Post Office pension, but the Canada Pension as well. I'm lucky to be
in a defined pension plan that's in good shape.
On Thursday Apr/16/09, I collected my last bonus check from The Post Office. Needless to say, it
was better than the one last year. I ask President, Moya Greene to put the bonus money towards "The Pension Deficit" in
2008, but she didn't listen to me. That's ok, I can use the money.
I was really floored by the size of the bonus. After all, we are in a recession, but Canada Post
had a small profit last year while the U.S Post Office was billions of dollars in debt.
I intend to keep writing in my blog at www.barronblog.com and updating my webpages occasionally.
I'll also keep writing stories and screenplays.
