Sometimes, I enjoy myself by doing volunteer "work" helping celebrities at autograph shows. I love animals and at one time I did volunteer work for Tippi Hedren's Shambala Preserve.

More answers..

sassydee50 asked me another question. (glutton for punishement hehe)

Now what made you decide to get into animal rescue and all those photos?


Ummm.. I'm not sure what you mean by animal rescue.. if you mean how did i get to help out at Shambala Preserve in California, well I knew someone who did volunteer work there and when i moved there asked if i could help .. wound up helping out for a few years before the earthquake made me stick closer to home lol.


And as for photography.. hmmm, i'm not a photographer by any sense of the word LOL.. i just had my camera and zoom lens and take (took) lots pictures lol.


Then am4039 questioned: Is Kevin Sorbo a nice guy?

Yep, I'm glad to say he was very nice. Though I do think he's changed some over the years. When he first began conventions as "Hercules" he was almost shy of all the attention. That seems to have faded away lol. But then, now he's a daddy a few times over which he was proud to show me the new baby pics of his 2 week old baby girl named Octavia.

Wonderful things these digital cameras, Kevin whipped out the camera and started showing off pictures that were still in the camera! haha..

Oh by the way here's some updated news on Kevin: Kevin will star in a remake of the 1970's movie "Walking Tall" - set to start shooting in January 2006!

And Betty asked yet another question !

"Pat, how does one find out about autograph shows? I've lived in several different areas and have never heard about them where I live and I actively read the paper for events such as this, etc.

You can always do a search under autograph conventions or sci fi conventions or autograph shows. When you find them you will notice that some shows are always in the same place once or twice a year.. others have shows in different states through out the year.

My going to these type shows began in Florida when I lived there. Vulcon advertised doing a Sci-Fi Convention and they were having a guest.. it was George Takai (Sulu) of Star Trek.. just for the heck of it I went with my youngest son Tom.

As we sat in the restaraunt at the hotel having coffee in walked Sulu (George) and his friends, they sat close to us and .. you know the old saying oflaugh and the world laughs with you?.. Well.. George laughed at something. I can promise you that you have never heard such a laugh in your life! My son and I got hysterical laughing at his laugh until i was crying! That was all it took.. I was hooked lol lol. I can still start laughing just thinking of his laugh!

It was also Vulcon's "Sea Trek" (a convention on a ship) where I first met DeForest.. and the rest of that is "history".

Here is a list of some websites you can check out..

Kevin Sorbo is doing a remake of Walking Tall?

Is that the same Walking Tall, that The Rock recently starred in?

I'm just curious, because hollywood seems to be doing more than one remake of the same movie, within the same decade as of late.

More importantly (LOL) if you ever run into Kevin Sorbo again could tell him that one of his fans was saddened when Andromeda was cancelled, and he wishes for a Movie.
