Two very special Hayward letter carriers are hanging up their mail bags today.

Ron and Peggy McMahon met each other on the job and have now been going to work together for more than 30 years.

Today, they will retire after making their last rounds and they are off on a cruise to the Caribbean next week.

The couple says they have lots of memories, but the one that sticks out is how they met.

"I think the best memory is meeting my wife here. I went up to her and said, 'do you date,' and she said if someone asked me. I gave her a call, we went out and months later we were married. I think that's the most memorable," Ron said.

Ron has 43 years of service while Peggy has 36.

Both are million mile drivers, which means each has a driver-safety record that shows they've had no accidents during their postal careers.
