I'm a Wiener (Again!)

I'm a happy-dancing silly-sausage!
Jonathan Freitag over at the Palouse Wargaming Journal recently ran a competition to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of his blog. The prize up for grabs was a copy of Henry Hyde's Wargaming Compendium with the runners-up receiving a Kindle version of the compendium or a book on Naseby.

The Prize!

 The device he'd settled on was a Haiku competetion on two themes:

  1. What wargaming means to you; or
  2. Why you should have the Compendium
I was a late comer to the competition and dashed off a haiku on Option 2. I wasn't really expecting to win anything, but enjoyed the challenge and was impressed by everyone else's efforts. I was very surprised, then, to find that Jonathan had rated my entry highly enough to win the runner's up prize!

Here's my Prize-Winning Haiku:

A compendium
Is all I need to master
An elusive art.

Thanks again, Jonathan, and Happy 2nd Blog Anniversary. Here's to many more!


  1. Thank you! Your haiku was simply elegant and convinced me that you deserved the book.

  2. Congrat's! What a very cool prize!

  3. Well done that man, a splendid addition to the library.
