Sam was a demon whistler!

"Children loved Sam and asked him to come out to play; he used a lot of vinegar building excellent rockets. He relished limericks, puns and Edward Gorey. He delighted in a good joke, though no one told a joke more ineptly. He loved Mozart, 'Candide,' and Kurt Weil. He gave to every street musician he met and was a demon whistler. Sam never said no to Patti Cooke’s peach pie, he made a mean Chicken Cacciatore, and his skill with an oyster knife was legendary."
