Hoary

Hoary

<or-ree>

antiquated; old; grizzled;

something that is ancient.

The hoary recliner sat in the den for ages. Dad was not happy to find a new chair in its place.

Memory trick:
we say hooray when something exists a long time.
A hooray is a shout of cheer.

At work:
Our office felt hoary until we replaced everything. It was now bright and happy.
