Thirty Days



Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
All the rest have thirty-one,
Save February, with twenty-eight days clear,
And twenty-nine each leap year.


I remember my nana teaching me this poem when I was very young.
I also learned to remember which months had more than thirty days with the alternating knuckle count. Anyone else learn that?

Too bad the fine folks at Stein Mart didn't learn either of those handy ways to remember how many days are in each month.
Either that or they know something the rest of us don't. Smile.

Good catch, friend.

Well I guess we could all use an extra day from time to time! That is so funny.
Ironically that poem was in Grace's math lesson just the other day, but we already do the knuckle one.
