Afterwards, I went over to the retirement office and handed in the paperwork. One of the counselors looked over the forms, took what was needed and told me that they will review the file to see what documents I've already filed and send me additional paperwork in the mail! It looks like they are treating this as a new application, since the previous application was allowed to lapse. I am fine with that. I just have to get the papers filled and back to them right away, when I receive them! No more procrastinating!
Since I was downtown, I played tourist and took some pictures of one of the more iconic buildings:
|The Los Angeles Times Building|
Built in 1935, it housed the offices of the Los Angeles Times newspaper until the company's lease ran out, in July of this year (2018) and the new owner of the paper moved the company to a new office space located in an adjacent city (El Segundo).

I applied for a job with the Los Angeles Times as a typist in their typing pool, back in the early 1980s! I remember going for a typing test and not passing! They wanted a speed of 45 words per minute and my speed was much higher than that, but, I lost points on accuracy!
The dedication reads, "This building is dedicated to the cause of true industrial freedom and liberty under the law".
Today, I went inside to take a picture of the lobby, which is known as the Globe Lobby:

I cam home and rested in the afternoon and sewed a bit more. Later, M came to do the garden and I chatted with him for a bit. Then, I attended the Friday evening meditation session at the temple. Later, I sewed a bit more. This is the gallon sized bag of small scraps I am trying to use up:

This is the basket of larger, solid colored scraps that I haven't even touched, so far:

This is the helpful kitty, who is always nearby to lend a helping paw with whatever project I am working on:
And, of course, I video chatted with daughter, too.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The retirement paperwork have been handed in and the process begun
- The offer of work, even if I am not likely to take them up on it
- A safe drive to downtown and back
- Being able to attend the meditation session
- Video chatting with daughter
How was your Friday?
