I just found out last month that I have cancer. Specifically, basal cell carcinoma on my neck. It is treatable, and I'm starting on cehmotherapy now. I'll likely require surgery later. I am, of course, scared.
I want to stick around for a few more decades. I want to write more stories about my ferret characters. I KNOW I can beat this. But I'll need help to do it. That's why I set up a fundraising page, via youcaring.com. I'm not proud. Here is a link:
If you can help, I would appreciate it.
Now, back to the regularly scheduled website...
Hi, My name is
Paul E. Jamison
Welcome to my little place on the Whirled Wide Web
(As Pogo would most likely call it)
If I make any faux pas with this home page thingy, well, tough. You've seen far worse out there.
The primary purpose of establishing this page was to make some stories I've written available for all to read. Y'see, when I was going with my ex-SO, I got to know - and eventually became Daddy to - her two little ferret kids, Al & Peggy (Daddy misses you two very much, and he'll love you forever!). I've become interested in ferrets therefore, and I've done a lot of cruising on the 'Net and found some wonderful ferrety sites (Links on my Ferrets page). I've found the stories concerning the Rainbow Bridge to be particularly touching, considering how many little critters I've known and loved in my life. (Note: For those unfamiliar with the reference, the Rainbow Bridge is where our beloved pets go when they die, to wait for us when we go to Heaven. There is more about the Bridge on my Rainbow Bridge page.)
...So I've written some Rainbow Bridge stories of my own, and I've posted them here for everyone to enjoy. (From the feedback that I've gotten so far, people do enjoy them. I'm beginning to think that I'm pretty good at this.) Read them and E-mail me ... tell me what you think.
Since I now have a presence on the Whirled Wide Web, I may as well do what everybody else does and post stuff about my personal interests, assuming anybody out there cares. So I've got a separate page about my personal interests, with some links to related sites. I'll be working on adding more links in the future.
New! I've begun writing fan fiction about the television show "due South" and now have a page devoted to my efforts. You'll find those stories on the due South page.
Even more new! I've started filking ferret-related songs! Check out the Ferret Songs page.
Newer still! Okay, some of you may have come across my Ferret Cannon Crew and the birthday salutes somewhere on a message board or a Usenet group or someplace similar, and you're likely asking yourself, "What the blue blazes is that all about?" I figured it was high time that I included a webpage that explains what the blue blazes it's all about. Check out the Birthday Salutes page, and Murphy, Sammy and Max will tell you all about it.
New as of 11/05/07! Somehow I've become interested in my Cannon Crew characters, and I've started writing adventure stories about them, under the series title "Mustela Sapiens". Let me know what you think.
At some point I may add another page with more info about me, but I'll really have to convince myself that someone else would be interested. (I may change my mind, however, if I ever break down and buy a scanner.)
About me: Surprise, surprise! I've actually posted a picture of myself, and I guess I don't look that hideous. Check out the Contact Me page and see my sweetheart, Shanna and me. Also read a few vital statistics.
Feel free to E-mail me at
I want to thank Kris, the moderator of Carpet Sharks Ink, who set up this website for me and has been teaching me the ins and outs of editing the pages. It's so nice to have friends like her.
Please come back soon and visit. You'll never know what you'll find!
