There were a couple passages that caught my attention:
He explained that his father used to make sousemeat. It was a “special” holiday meat that used up the aftermath of hog-killing time.
Sousemeat is a conglomeration of feet, ears, faces, and other parts that were cleaned thoroughly, boiled into a homogeneous glutinous consistency, seasoned heavily, and then formed into a large loaf.
He talked about raccoon and opossum hunting with neighboring black men.
‘Possums were scavengers and needed to be fed clean food for a week or two before they were good to eat.
I guess opossums were captured and taken home to be cared for until they were “good to eat.”
He remembered that Trivial Pursuit was a very popular game in 1980, and he proposed a question of his own:
Which former presidents, if any, are not buried within the continental limits of the United States?
Answer: Any living former president.

The phone survived, but I was sure sorry to have to wipe up the yolk instead of eating it.
