Linnets and Valerians

“Was Diogenes a Greek?” asked Timothy

“He was,” said Uncle Ambrose. “Please pass me the salad dressing.”

“I’ve heard of him” said Robert. “Didn’t he live in a tub?”

“He did.”

“Why, Uncle Ambrose?”

“He desired peace and quiet.” said Uncle Ambrose. “Possibly he had nephews and nieces.”
