This is a delightful story of your outing with then. I can tell you are having some problems with your eyes. You have several typos, but I was able to figure out what you were saying.

I now am wondering too where he went. I hate it when I am talking to someone that was there and all the sudden they are gone. But it happens.

I found a few mistakes that I wrote down as I was reading. I know you like to know so...
"someone to open the door (for me)"
"sit in the front (seat)"
"Has a poor memor(y)"
"twenty years and (divorced)"
"anywhere we (always) stop along the was pick up the thing(s) we ma(y) need"
"how cold it get(s) here"

I enjoyed your ramble. It reminds me of the time on a long trip I wanted my husband to take his turn at the wheel. I stopped along the highway and I got out to go around to the passenger seat. He slid over and started the car up and took off without me making it to the other side.
I was standing on the side of highway, barefooted. He had to turn about and come back for me.
I found a few things you might want to fix. I don't how to spell your friend's name

someone to open forme. for me
sit in the front seet seat
has a poor memor. memory
Agustin gets settle into settled
stepping on the gas peddal pedal
Agusting stop trying to kill Agustin

You upset me when your title says you lost Agustin. I thought he had passed, glad he just disappeared from the store. Maybe he got a ride home with someone else.

Hello Sasha,
I enjoyed your Smurphy Ramble; however, there were many typing errors. I have taken the liberty to point them out to you by copying and pasting your ramble below. I hope I have not offended:


Before beginning this, I need to pause and provide a little back story. When I go anywhere with Augustin and Veronica there are specific rules that need to be folowed (followed) when riding in the car . (spacing) The font (front) door is difficult to open so I must wait for someone to open forme. I sit in the front seet (seat) because it is the most comfortable and easiest for me to get into. In the past, Agustin (Augustin) drove, and Veronica rode in the backseat. When it came time to get out of the car, they insisted I stay put until Veronica opened the door for me. Unfortunately as kind as Agustin is, he, like me. has a poor memor. (memory). Visualize this, the car stops. Veronica gets out of the backseat, opens the door for me to get out and we walk toward the entrance to the store. The same occurrs (occurs) when we get back into the car. I am not allowed to touch the door handle and wait for Veronica to open the door. While this occures, (occurs) Agustin gets settle (settled) into the front seat and prepares to drive out of the parking lot. Several times he forgot to wait for Veronica to get back into the car, stepping on the gas peddal (pedal) before she had shut the door, nearly running her over. I realize this potentially had dangerous potential and I began insisting Agusting stop trying to kill our beloved Veronica. His explanation was humorous. He claimed that she always sat in the front seat when I wasn't there and he had not gotten used to her being in the back seat. After the ninth or tenth time (,) I insisted that Veronica be the driver and Agustin (Augstin) sit in the back seat.

This worked out very well and, so far, Veronica has not run over Agustin a single time. I love to tease Veronica about being the driver and despite her poor English, she understands a lot of what I say to Agustin. Being one that sits in the front seat, I often need to lean back to speak to Augustin to translate a street sign and other questions I may have. He loves to tease me about having (a) big fee. Today I asked him if I had been born in Mexico to Mexican parents, would I have had (a) small fee. He said no, but if I had Mexican children, children they all would have looked like pale skinned ducks waddling down the street. Veronica gets a kick out of my comments to Agustin and spends a lot of time lauging (laughing) at my questions. Today was hysterical.

We arrived at Lionsos restaurant to have breakfast with Ron at approximately 9:30 AM. Since he lives a mere half-block from the restaurant, Ron arrives a few minutes later. We had a lovely time and around twelve o'clock we said our good byes and got ready to leave. Lee came too. He told me that if I want to invite his ex-wife, Annie, next time, let him know and he won't come. How awkward is that. Lee and Annie were married in the US for twenty years and devorsed (divorced) a few years ago. They don't fight but it is awkward for them to be together. She lives here about six month (months) a year as does Lee. Annie wasn't here today so I now know I have to pick and chose the next time we get together. I like them both very much.

Whenever we go anywhere we alwasy (always) stop along the was (way to) pick up thing we ma need.(things we may need). After we left Ron, we stopped several times at places I was not familiar with. For some reason Agustin (Augustin) got out of the car and I assume he got back in. I later found out he did not.

As I usually do, I tried to speak with him but he did not answer. I turned toward Veronica an asked her where he was. All she could do was to laugh at me. Apparently he did not get back into the car. Her laughter contined for several minute (continued for several minutes) and she never told me where or why he left.

Some mysteries are never resolved. Augustin disapeared(disappeared) into thin air. I called him this morning because I could no find the remote to turn of my mini split. (to turn off my mini ?) By now you should know how cold it get (gets) here with it on. I search every corner to find it but could not. Agustin (Augustin) is coming over to help me find it. I plan to ask him where he disappeared to yesterday.


AS alwas (?)



Take Care,
diane

    Dear Sasha!
    My eyesight is abysmal!
    I just thought if I made the corrections in the body of your work, it would be easier for you to edit than list them.
    Take Care of yourself!
