“I played ping-pong even when I didn’t have anyone to play ping-pong with. I played ping-pong so much, I even played it in my sleep. ” Forrest Gump (1994)
Interesting Fact: Ping Pong originated in England during the 19th century, where it was played among the upper-class as an after-dinner parlour game. It has been suggested that the game was first developed by British military officers in India or South Africa who brought it back with them. A row of books was stood up along the center of the table as a net, two more books served as rackets and were used to continuously hit a golf-ball.

I was challenged by Cynthia at http://cynthiamvoss.wordpress.com/ to take up the Black and White 5-Day Challenge. Part of the fun is to nominate another blogger, one on each day.
Today, I nominate Kirsten of http://kirstenaufhammer.com/ Kirsten, if you accept, the goal is to post one B&W photo each day for five days, and to nominate a fellow blogger each day to join in.
There is no pressure to accept this challenge. It’s just for fun! 🙂
