My extended family has always been a wordy bunch. In one memorable Scrabble game my grandfather—an editorial writer for the Calgary Herald, played ‘GRANGERS’ on a triple word score for 129 points in a single word.

We’ve now entered a new phase of existence where we play games against each other online. On the couch. At the same time—the Hephers have now somewhat grudgingly stepped into the present.
