Esther Brauer: the world's oldest shedworker?

The beauty of shedworking is that there is no upper limit restriction when it comes to age. The Times reports about the fine shedworking career of 78-year-old Esther Brauer who has run a post office from a shed in the Scottish Highland community of Kylesku since 1983 (she has been in charge of the post office there for a total of nearly 60 years). Here's a snippet:
Mrs Brauer said: “It is a small community which needs a post office. I managed to escape the closures, which is a great relief. If I left I can’t see anyone else taking it over. So I will continue for as long as I can. It is a lifeline service to the locals, and is very much used by visitors."
