My dad (Fred Stanley Davis) was born in 1930 and grew up at a time when the children waited for the adults to finish eating before they could come to the table. Once years ago we were all gathered around the table eating my mom’s fried chicken, and my grandfather (Marion Frank Davis) happened to be present.
Suddenly, Granddad looked at my dad and said, “Son, why aren’t you eating the neck? I thought you loved it.”
My dad, who was colorful with his language to say the least, looked up and without missing a beat said, “Hell, Daddy, by the time I got to the table, there was never anything left but the neck. I had to eat it to keep from starving to death!”
