I like to play chess. I moved to a small town, and nobody played chess there, but one guy challenged me to checkers. I always thought it was kind of a simple game, but I accepted. And he beat me nine or ten games in a row. That’s sort of like living in a small town. It’s a simpler game, but it’s played to a higher level. Peter Hessler

      And I was there that day with Parker and our Sandy! After Parker’s photo op Sandy and I played a game on Parker’s big board. She beat me hands down. I have a funny feeling Parker would have found lame competition too!
