“Let’s See Says the Blind Man”

#SoCD: Phrases I Grew Up With

My siblings each helped and sent me phrases from my dad that I hadn’t remembered, yet brought back laughing, and fond memories for me.

“Let’s see says the blind man.” Daddy would say, when asked a question by one of us. He didn’t always know the answers but he always had the knowing knowledge to look and see.

An amateur soothsayer of sorts. He would put his hands in and pull out gems of low country wisdom. Erstwhile jokester of idioms to keep us guessing and seeking the answers ourselves to find happily.
