Today a cute old man from our town called up my husband and said, "Would you like some roasting ears?" My husband said, "Yes, that is so sweet." When he hung up the phone, he turned to me and said, "What are roasting ears? Is it corn." I laughed and replied, "yes, it is corn on the cob." I love the words and phrases old people say, so I decided to incorporate it into my blog. So, today is the first vintage word of the day. I hope you like.
