can count on no hands
 v. phr.— «I think 11 is too young to use paint and powder except on houses and in six shooters. This is discouraging for them as the house was just painted and the number of six shooters around the place can be counted on no hands.» —“Quit Contrary” by Mary Arlington Heights Herald (Illinois) Aug. 23, 1956.
