I have used this but with both fists together and facing away so the jul-aug jump is between the top of the index knuckles.

I use the sing-song poem “30 days has September, April, June and November… Once short February’s done, all the rest have 31” (and just found out there are so many versions of this ditty see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirty_days_hath_September)

I have used it all my life. With two goats together.

I’ve relied exclusively on the poem.
