Definition of codger:
Jerry and Eugene Wellington were far up the shrubbery walk by the time the Winnowoc train was on its way again, unconscious that the passengers were looking after them, or that the talk, as the train slowly got under way, was all of " that rich old codger of a Darby and his selfish old wife"; of " that young dude artist, old Wellington's kid, too lazy to work"; of " that pretty, frivolous girl who didn't know how to comb her own hair, Jim Swaim's girl- poor Jim!"- "The Reclaimers", Margaret Hill McCarter.
