    Mr Lick; gentleman; newshound; tongue and groove devotee - a tribute

    Just through in breaking news today

    Mr Lick; what more to say...

    He's packed his bags; upped his sticks; drawn the curtain on news in pics

    Truly a piece of forum art

    Composed fastidiously from the heart

    He graced these halls with a masterpiece

    The only one, for now at least...

    His work was presented with quality and care

    Each picture written up with editorial flair

    Gentleman; newshound; tongue and groove devotee

    He should've been a correspondent for the BBC

    A man I never met, but it's become quite clear

    He was genial, staunch, without fear...

    A resident of Isaan, I'll leave you with a view

    Rest well, my friend; this forum will miss you

    Little justice could be done. News in Pics just under 2,000,000 views. What a forum legacy.

    I'm a newbie here so I did not get to interact with Mr. Lick much but I can say I traded greens with him.

    somtamslap - thank you, that is a most powerful tribute.

    Mr. Lick - God Bless...

    Mr Lick was a neighbour of mine. He sent me a PM once to let me know. We planned to meet up, but like so often happens, things came up, and we never did. I really regret not meeting him. I did not even know he was ill. He was a great poster, and one of the really good guys on TD. Sent me quite a few greens too.

    RIP Mr Lick. TD is a poorer place without you.
    I blame the Americans......and Thaksin.

    Indeed, and that is the point...Not many of us did have much "contact" with him, yet he touched every one of us...

    Think Mr. L used to play golf with a fellow member who doesn't post any more.

    Sadly, I believe, he is survived by his father, who he regularly went back to visit.

    Whoever takes the reigns of the News in Pic thread shall be a brave fellow; retired preferably, maybe residing in a humble property amid the wilds of Isaan; and, importantly of course, not an idiot.

    I wonder if he had half-Thai children ? And are they being adequately provided for ?

    Why not yourself Slap? You're not retired officially, but you certainly qualify in all other cases listed. No butt horns either...
