The text for this entry is "....'O' is for Old ladies and Obscure, but Omnipresent, Odors up in they Old houses (see also: "Odiferous", "Ominous", and "Reading rooms" in Presbyterian churches).
 
And, yes, I'm more than well-aware that Old Men living alone are equally inclined to some off-putting habits....but at least they don't seem to think that all can be hidden by asking the cleaning-woman to spray "Summer-Sweet Rose Garden Mist!", supposed "Air Freshener" all over the room before closing the windows yet again.  For better or worse, old men just tend to sit where they are and expect someone to clean up after them.
