Yes, well, due a series of technical hitches too tiresome to go into here - even for a blog. I had to write my column on my wife's laptop - rather a natty little iBook - tangerine.
Anyhoo, I had to send it from her e-mail and here's the thing, I forgot to send a copy to myself. Quelle dommage.
So here's the abridged version.
Wrexham is as in love with the motor car as LA, so a survey of European cities has revealed.
It is the most motored up place in Europe for commuters.
That's because, I said, it has a public transport system that is a bag of bobbins.
Oh and I had a funny letter from a bloke called Charlie Roberts about panto. He remembers one in 1946 allegedly starring Issy Bonn (singer, comic, was one of the images on Sgt Pepper album apparently)
The panto, Sleeping Beauty, went on - no Issy, until ten minutes from the end, when the Good Fairy asked Beauty what she would wish for.
"I'd like to hear Issy Bonn sing 'The little Boy Santa Claus Forgot'" replied Beauty.
One comes Issy in full evening dress, belts out four numbers, and exits. Crowd loved it.
On reflection, Charlie's letter was the best bit of the column.
