A request of help for a cranky old geezer, whos memeory is fading….

I remember seeing a brilliant Meme/cartoon with a poem about the good old days of wargaming. I cannot recall if i saw it on a blog about oldhammer or in a magazine.

I remember a line about having to cast our figures out of old musket balls, and the Rules being an oral tradition. It included a cartoony picture of a bald old chap with a pipe in an armchair with a slightly kooky looking cat in the foreground. any hely tracking this down would be greatly appreciated

Ah … what was the question ?

I think the bald old chap with a pipe in the armchair may have been me, but someone obviously took indecent liberties in depicting my noble canine companion as a cat!
