“A good hunter never tells where he goes hunting.” Dad has cool stuff, most of it gotten second or third hand, or found somewhere. If you ask where he got it, perhaps just interested in the acquisition story, he will answer with this. I guess it pays to not reveal just everything.
“Walk on the high ground.” Walk through a field with Dad and you get this advice. Keep your shoes clean.
“You got the number you dialed. It was wrong.” Dad says this upon answering the telephone and the caller has dialed the wrong number and questions whether he really knows whether so & so lives there. It’s kind of a nice way to say face it, you are wrong.
