Old Timey Word of the Week

This week's old timey word is "gams."  You may or may not have heard this term before.  It is another word commonly used in the twenties and thirties.  What does it mean?  Well, every woman has a set and guys love them.  They're legs.  Usually, the term was used to describe a pair of long attractive legs.  Edward G. Robinson, most known for his roles in gangster movies, once commented on Rita Hayworth's "nice gams."

It is such a great term.  I hear it occasionally, but it would be great if this one made a comeback.
