Did you Know it’s the Glorious 12th!..Day 9!

Glorious 12th re 11thDid you Know it’s the Glorious 12th!..Day 9!

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA – AUGUST 11: Hailee Steinfeld arrives at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards at Gibson Amphitheatre on August 11, 2013 – a picture of the day before – just teasing!

Now, I want to tell you a story! For the few months I have promised myself that I would write a special blog  post about the 12th of the month but each time I have forgotten to do anything!

Suddenly I remembered that today is the 12th! Now I can record three reasons why I am glad to remember this day – the 12th August.

1) The Glorious Twelfth is usually used to refer to 12 August, the start of the shooting season for Red Grouse (Lagopus lagopus scotica) and to a lesser extent the Ptarmigan (Lagopus muta) in Britain. This is one of the busiest days in the shooting season, with large amounts of game being shot. The date itself is traditional, the current legislation enshrining it is the Game Act 1831 (and in Northern Ireland, the Wildlife (Northern Ireland) Order 1985). Not all game (as defined by the Game Act 1831) have the same start to their open seasons – most begin on 1 September, with 1 October for Woodcock and Pheasant.[1][not in citation given]

 Famous Grouse

Red Grouse

Since British law says that the start of the season cannot fall on a Sunday, it is sometimes postponed to 13 August, as in 2001[2] and 2007.[3] Because grouse are not and never have been reared to any extent for shooting, their numbers fluctuate naturally from year to year. In recent years, the Glorious Twelfth has also been hit by hunt saboteurs, the 2001 foot and mouth crisis (which further postponed the date in affected areas)[4] and the effect of sheep tick, heather beetle, the gut parasite Trichostrongylus tenuis[5] and severe flooding and bad weather. In some seasons where certain moors are hit by low numbers of grouse, shooting may not occur at all or be over by September.

2) When I talked to my wife Janet today about the Glorious 12th she said “yes it is – it is one day before the Glorious 13th! ”

I said “What do you mean? She said “You know, The Glorious 13th August is my Birthday!” AND THAT IS WHEN THE SHOUTING STARTED! No not really!

Okay, by now you may have realised that the first two reasons were not the reasons I wanted to write a blog about the 12th of the month!

3) The real reason is to play this very special song with the lyrics which brings back so many personal memories – I hope you like it.

Johny Mathis – The Twelfth of Never

You ask how much I need you; well, I’ll explain.

I need you, oh my darling, like roses need rain.

You ask how long I’ll love you; I’ll tell you true:
Until the twelfth of never, I’ll still be loving you.

BRIDGE:

Hold me close, never let me go.
Hold me close, melt my heart like April snow.

I’ll love you till the bluebells forget to bloom;
I’ll love you till the clover has lost its perfume.
I’ll love you till the poets run out of rhyme,
Until the twelfth of never and that’s a long, long time.

(Return to bridge and pick up.)

Hold me close, never let me go.
Hold me close, melt my heart like April snow.

I’ll love you till the bluebells forget to bloom;
I’ll love you till the clover has lost its perfume.
I’ll love you till the poets run out of rhyme,
Until the twelfth of never and that’s a long, long time.
