asks for Space-Station Humour.


An Astronaut up in mid-air
Said 'I can't do a thing with my hair!
If I go for a quiff
It stands up straight and stiff
And gives all the Martians a scare.'



The Nippers have a uniform; it's yellow and it's blue,
Reflecting waves and sunshine, which is what it aught to do.
Future Life-Savers practise skills in the sea and on the sand,
And here's Blake in a relay race with a small stick in his hand.
This photo clearly shows the speed, it also shows the fun.
It's an ideal way for children to enjoy the sand and sun.
Though Blake enjoyed the racing and he still runs very fast,
The attraction of the ocean soon faded in the past.
These days Blake is swimming in the local swimming-pool
And being a Little Nipper no longer seems so 'cool'.
So this is a memento of a happy time that's gone,
Before Blake left the Nippers and, as happens, just moved on.

Thanks for the smile. Sadly I don't have to enter space to have a bad-hair day. I can scare humans right here on earth.

As for kids moving on, alas they sure do.
