Celebrity Reader

Recently, my blog was graced with a visit with a local celebrity.

Those of you in the Washington, DC area will be immediately know the voice of this man as soon as you hear it.

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to intorduce Mr. Ronnie Mervis, of Mervis Diamond Importers.

Before any of you freak out and suggest that your pal Gunfighter has turned into a shill for a diamond merchant, I assure you that this isn't the case. I have been in contact with Ronnie and his son Jonathan because they have been reading my blog and were interested in picking up the traffic at their site, and since they figured mine was well-trafficked, they would ask for some pointers.

It has been a couple of months since we first made contact, and after some discussions about blogging, we have been mostly talking about South African rugby.

I'm not suggesting that you buy any diamonds... and I'm not in the market for any either (I'm a civil servant folks... I don't, as a habit, go about buying diamonds), but give Ronnie a visit, just because he seems a nice chap!

NOTE: Shame on you if you think Ronnie is going to give me a nice shiny new bauble for Mrs Gunfighter for mentioning him on my blog... which would be nice, but no such offer has been made

Well it's good to have connections!

Hey, I believe you have failed to respond to the comments at one of your recent posts, because I've been waiting for it!

Which one?


If you don't live around here, it is certain that you wouldn't know him... unless you were from South Africa.

That should make you feel good that people are asking YOU for ways to get more traffic to their sites!

I may be one of the few women in America who is not overly impressed with jewelry. I have a beautiful engagement and wedding ring...but feel no need for anything else of great value.

Uh, yeah... he should totally make you an offer you can't refuse.
