“It was a wonderful feeling to be in Kevin’s arms again.”

This great story and accompanying artwork are from Anne in Germany who, with Lindsey and Heidi, heads the Official European Kevin Sorbo Fan Club (OEKSFC) and maintains its blog and forum:

FACTS Convention in 2009, Ghent, Belgium – a small report:

kevin-facts-2Kevin was again in Europe. We waited for him for a long time, and finally he was (here). We met Kevin again at a European Convention (FACTS).

After we (waited) for some time in the long (con entrance) queue, we (arrived) at Kevin’s autograph table. He was not there yet, and I used the time to get the Birthday Book from the OEKSFC from my backpack. We wanted to hand it to Kevin there. When I got up, Kevin already sat in his place. He looked great. We, the club team (Lindsey, Heidi and I), waited until the fans said goodbye to Kevin.

“Oh, my fan club is here,” said Kevin, pleased, and (gladly) welcomed us  We gakevin and me facts2009ve him the book, which he took with thanks. We (then) took the first photos together with Kevin. It was a wonderful feeling to be in his arms again.

Unfortunately, Kevin was only at the FACTS (for) one day because he is just shooting a new movie, so we spent as much time as possible with him.

The first photo shoot began with Kevin in the afternoon. Laughing, Kevin (greeted) me and asked (on) which side I want (to stand). What a question… Then, I was on Kevin’s side and in his arms, and we had a lot of fun. I do not know why, but the photographer didn’t stop taking photos. Kevin amused me very much; however, I enjoyed it – to be for a long time in Kevin’s arms. When I received my pictures later I was very happy with them; they are very nice.

(The con) continued with Kevin’s Q&A panel. He talked a lot about his new movies, and to my great joy he said that he has also a new western.

The day came to an end too fast, and, unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to Kevin. We met Kevin again at his table. Edith and I shot some photos with Kevin together, and then there was the official handing over of the Birthday Books to Kevin and also photos from the OEKSFC Team. We still chatted with him for some time (and) thanked him for his time and that he had made it possible to come. Once again there were hugs and nice photos with Kevin, which also gave to him a lot of pleasure.

Kevin signed for us the big poster behind him (at his table). We received it as a gift from the FACTS team to our Club… very nice!!!

kevin on facts2009Then we said goodbye to Kevin, wished him a good journey home, and (said we) hoped to see him soon again in Europe. (We took) our last look at a great actor and a miraculous, friendly and charming man.

Too fast this day passed, and we hope to see Kevin again soon.
