100-Year-Old Janitor Still Working At Maryland Post Office

A janitor at a post office in Maryland celebrated his 100th birthday this past week with the help of his co-workers according to KMBC-TV.

The ABC affiliate reports, "Mazerine Wingate started his job at the Lexington Park Post Office at age 60, when most people are settling into retirement. Forty years later, he's still at it -- at least five hours a day, six days a week."

Wingate is quoted as saying he started working at age 10 plowing farm fields. Born in 1910, he's lived to see both world wars from start to finish, along with 18 presidents.

At age 100, he still drives himself to work and has had no major health issues.

His secret to longevity? He doesn't smoke or drink and attends church every Sunday. But most important, he said, is eating good food like peas, cornbread and sweet potatoes.
