    All but

    Hello.

    Is the following use of "all but" common?

    -The man's hair all but touched his shoulders.
    -Fortunately, Grandfather did not have a heart attack. He all but did.
    -"Did the floodwaters reach your house?" "All but."

    Re: All but

    In my mind the first is correct. The second is OK and the third is odd.
