I got an unexpected gift today. When I walked into my office this morning, a good friend of mine had gotten me the movies Superman 2-3 and 4!! Now my collection is complete!

Thanks so much and remember…
“Look up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman!”

River Rats

Just got back from my brother’s we went 4-wheeling!! He took me down by the river and we had an awesome time! It was pretty funny, I thought I would be a “cool-dude” and fly right pass him on the ATV I was driving, so I did and I didn’t know that a few feet in front of me was a pretty steep dip. Man, I hit that bad boy and I thought for sure I was going to flip the 4-wheeler over. After that, I let him take the lead.

Yea, Like That Is Going To Happen….. NOT

I have been getting some “Anonymous” comments on my blogg recently, and it seems this “Anonymous” person wants to know some information. And since I refused to give this “Anonymous” person any information, this “Anonymous person is sort of being rude.

So, “Anonymous” person, I am sorry but a good reporter like me and “Clark Kent” can’t really answer any question you might have about a certain post.

So "Anonymous" I am truly sorry. But please continue to post remarks and if you can, please add your name. If I know you, I will be more then happy to answere any question you may have.

Thanks for the support. and remember

Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!

The Gift Of Flight

I get this question a lot.. “Of all the super-heroes out there, why do you pick Superman?”
So to be honest, there is a lot of reason why I choose Superman. I think the first thing is that he is honest and true to his word, that is something no one can take away from you. But I think the biggest thing he does is that he helps people. The kind of help that requires countless sincere amounts of “thanks you” and yet he doesn’t request it or requires it for his help. Just goes about doing what is right. Like another man I know. Ezra (from the Old Testament) he just did what was right. Didn’t expect a bunch of people saying “thank you.”

Plus I like the “similarities” of Superman and Jesus..(By NO means am I saying that Superman is Jesus) all I am saying is that I think it is pretty cool how they are similar.
For example:
Superman was sent from the “heavens” by his father Jor-El to save a dying planet
Jesus was sent from Heaven by God (his father) to save mankind.

Superman has three forms (or identities) Kal-El / Clark Kent / Superman

Jesus has three forms Father / Son / Holy Ghost

El which is Jor – El and Kal – El’s Kroptonian surname is Hebrew for God

Well anyway.. Thought I would clear the air..

BibleMan and Apples

I am sitting here in my office taking a little break. I have my April report done and saved on my hard drive. So come Sunday night I can add what ever happens this weekend to it and then print it out and handed in by Sunday. (Even though the end of the month is Monday, I am off on Mondays)..

I previewed the new “BibleMan” DVD today. This one was pretty good. They had more “bonus” materials this time, like bloopers and music videos. I am still reading the book
“Lights In The Sky & Little Green Men- A Rational Christian Look at UFO’s and Extraterrestrials” it seems really interesting..

But I want to leave you with a cool quote from my good friend (Lois Lane).. I tell you what; this is some good advice if you have any daughters. And even BETTER advice if you have sons (like I do).. Thanks Lois for the words of inspiration..

Girls are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The boys don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

Midnight Snack

Well it is around 11:30pm and I am trying to stay awake until around 2am so I can feed Alexander. We are transitioning him to a bottle. With that said. I choose to take the early shift and Cathy will sleep from 10 till 4 and then take the early morning shifts.
So I have been keeping busy by eating a delicious stuffed pepper, then I did some Bible study, now I am working on my blogg and listening to some tunes on You Tube.. I just got done hearing and seeing Bon Jovi’s “Living On A Prayer”.. (Man, I loved the 80’s)! I guess when I get done here I will send my homie Lois Lane an email.
(Ohhhhh we’re have way there.. Oh Oh living on a prayer!!) Got a love Bon Jovi!!
He flies in this video…

Whelp I guess I will think of something else to blog about!!

Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars

The Family Shower

Our family shower has changed over the years.
Today I went to take a shower.. But first I had to remove
1) a rubber ducky
2) a “Lighting McQueen” car/bubble bath
3) a toy hammer/screw driver
4) a toy Navy sub
5) a infant blue bathtub
6) an inflatable mattress for the infant bathtub
7) a Spiderman action figure
8) a “Carebears” Sunshine bear shampoo bottle

I went looking for my bar of soap (dove, cause I have sensitive skin) but because we have a “pre-teen” boy in our house I had to move his “Axe” brand body wash, But you know what, I kind of like the idea of “family”

A Knight In Shinning Armor (ok.. a black and white tux)

Talking with some of the Senior High students at church I am finding out that this weekend and next and last weekend are and were High School Proms. Bracken County’s Prom is this weekend and Cathy and I were talking about when she and I went to her prom.
Oh the sweet sounds of memories and Garth Brooks, as we danced the night away under the plastic hanging stars of the Spindle Top Plantation in Lexington Ky. Then the romantic moonlit carriage ride through-out the grounds of the aging
settlement, the time of togetherness as two shaking, nervous hands become one.

I am reminded of a quote from a song…
“You’re a princess, chains around you, I’m a hero who just found you”

Then the best part of the night….
Driving to Arby’s for some Cheddar - Roast beef sandwiches!!!
Boy I love Arby’s Roast beef sandwiches.

(You thought I was going to say the “kiss-goodnight”)

Rock And Roll

Why do I have this gentleman up here? He is kind of funny. We should put him as a greeter at our church. And use the tag.. “See you again soon!”

Daddy's Princess

Well, I thought I would go ahead and post this pic of my vision of what could of been the future, if we had a little girl instead of a little boy.

TV Land

Well it is around 11:35 pm, in about 30 minutes; Cathy will be waking up to feed Alexander. I like to stay up with her and keep her company. But I also help out when she goes back to sleep I rock Alexander back to sleep so she can get some rest. (No, I am not trying to toot my own horn-ha ha)
Anyway, while I wait, I thought I would share with you some thoughts for the day.
I like M*A*S*H, it is one of my favorite TV shows. I think I am going to save up some money and buy the series on DVD (hint to anyone who would like to buy them for me)

I think my favorite on the show is Maj. Frank Burns. He is so funny. I remember how Trapper and Hawkeye would tease him and he would say something smart like. “None of your bees whacks!” ha ha loved it.

Well that is all

I think I am going to mow the lawn this weekend if it's not raining.

Secret Societies

What is it about this symbol that drives people curiosities? Why are there so many “conspiracies” and movies surrounding this simple geometric symbol? Could this country really been conceived by great men of this “secret society” How would you approach the man behind this symbol?
In the movie “National Treasure” it suggests that there is a “great and lavish treasure” within the walls of this nation. And that our fore fathers “The Masons” left clues for us to follow. Is this Hollywood recreating history? Or History “creating” Hollywood?

Sunday, April 15, 2007


It is around 12:20am on a Sunday night. I was up with Cathy as she was feeding Alexander. She is back asleep now and I am thinking about some things. As I sit here just thinking. I am brought back to when I took over the Student Ministry at Antioch Mills. That was way back in January of 2001 and now it is April of 2007 and I am the new Minister of Family and Children. It is hard to believe I am working towards my 7th year here at Antioch. I seen a lot of Youth Ministers come and go through out Harrison County and other surrounding counties. I have seen a lot of changes take place and lives changed some for the better and some for the worse. And as I was thinking about all that something popped into my head.
I had a friend of mine stop by today to hang out and see Alexander (I won’t give the name, don’t want to embarrass them) Anyway, this friend of mine and myself were checking out You-Tube and watching some funny things like “Goofy Cheerleaders” and “The Star Wars Kid.” But then something after that caught my attention. My friend showed my their “My-Space” page and as I was reading my friend’s “likes and dislikes,” it came to the part that asked you to “list your heroes” As I was reading how my friend’s heroes were Jesus and their family I noticed that my friend put “Lonnie Love” as their hero.
I was blown away!! I knew me and my pal were friends but I had know idea I was a “hero” in their eyes. That made me feel so special. It is funny, you go through your daily chores of life, trying to make this rock, this spinning sphere of fun and adventure bearable and live a Christ like example and when you least expect it. You become someone’s hero…
Thanks Lois Lane……

I Got Me A Big Bed

Phase one of Landon's big move... After he gets use to and stays in his "big" bed.. We will move him to another bedroom.. and hopefully we will have Brady's new bedroom done..

Not A Coin Or The Rock

Here is another pic of Alexander.. Some friends of mine rather have seen him instead of my coins and The Rock..
Hmmm... He is a cute as his daddy!!!

The Rock Says…..

Well it’s Sunday afternoon. Cathy, Alexander and Landon are napping. Brady is outside playing B-ball with the neighbors and I am doing some laundry. Things are pretty quiet right now so I thought I would take this time to surf the net (You-Tube) and blog. We had some leftover meatloaf for lunch, but I decided to eat some “stuffed-peppers” instead. There isn’t anything good on TV. I hear Cathy stirring around upstairs and so does my dog Ressie-Cup. We don’t have a buzzer on the dryer to let us know when the clothes are done so I have to periodically check on them. I would use the clock to let me know when an hour and ½ is up, but these clothes are already dry, I am just “re-fluffing” them.
So, why the title “The Rock Says?” Well I like the Rock he is one of my favorite movie stars/ex-wrestler. And I have his book, The Rock Says here in front of me on my desk.
Well, keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.

Roger Alexander Love

Just a few early pics of the little lad.

Behold, The WOMB Was Empty…Easter 2007

Talk about a “Sun-Rise” service. I was awaken today at 3am by what sounded like a cat got caught in the washing machine. Cathy was having some serious contractions. So we headed to Georgetown Hospital. What a scene, we are doing Mach-1 in our mini van and I was busting out the “monster ballads” CD. Nothing says “we are having a baby, like the 80’s big hair band Skid Row’s “Remember Yesterday” and Ratt’s "Rock You Like A Hurricane”
We get to the hospital get her comfortable and around 11am she had Roger Alexander Love. He weighs 7.1 pounds and is 19 inches long.
Both mom and baby and doing fine.
After time with Brady and Landon over dinner with just daddy, we headed to see their new little brother. They are excited!
Can’t wait to bring him and her home.

I Married Martha Stewart

We had Landon’s birthday party today, and Cathy made this “train” cake..
It’s pretty awesome how she made it. I will post more about the wild party next time.
You can eat everthing except the plastic animals, rail-road crossing and the number 2 candle

I have a friend who can not stand sideburns. Or what I like to call “chops” I have been thinking about this for quiet sometime now. You see, I have started to grow me some chops. They are not as bushy as they can be. I am trying to see how they look with a post-modern baldness pattern hair style.
You know, chops can be quiet dapper. You can, if you want, connect them to a mustache or even a “chin-less” beard.
So to my friend and all the people all around the world, take from me parents just don’t understand.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame…..

Today I went with the Jr. and Sr. High youth group to the Cincinnati Reds baseball game. They were playing against the Chicago Cubs. Despite the cold weather, it was a fun time. I think Brady really enjoyed himself.
The best part was in-between innings, they would play music, and I got to get up and dance!
I hope I made ESPN.. ‘Cause I had some AWESOME moves.. I should be on Soul Train.

Good Ship Feather-Sword

I received a couple of encouraging emails from some friends of mine tonight (thanks Cindy and Margaret). It was really nice to see that people do care what I do. I know I am a goofy person a lot of the times. But I also know that God has given me a gift. The ability to reach lost souls with humor and honesty, I know I am not a gifted writer or speaker. And I know am definitely not a singer. But to hear people tell me they appreciate what I do for their children makes me feel just as special. With that in mind, I found this video from a movie called Casper the Friendly Ghost. I like the song and I thought it would be cool to post it and say, “Thank you to everyone who reads this blog and I am glad I can make you smile. PS. I think this is going to be the week. Cathy went to the movies with her friend and everyone says you have a burst of energy before it happens.
We will see!

Signal Ready

When I was stationed in Germany, I had a friend. Her name was Margaret. It was funny how we met. I have to share this story. When you are in the military you have your last name on your uniform and every one calls you by your rank and last name, for example I was known as “Specialist Love” not Lonnie. So when my friend Margaret (AKA- Specialist Andrews) showed up at the base for the first time. I thought I would be a “cool-player” and introduce my self and ask for her name. When I ever so cool walked up and said I was “Lonnie Love” I asked her for her name. She pointed to her uniform shirt and said. “Da – It is right there.”
After that we became the best of friends. I left Germany in April of 91; I didn’t think I would ever hear from her again. And 12 years later she called me up out of the blue. And we continue to email to this day. So, to my good buddy Margaret. “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!” Oh, and thanks for reading my blogs and making them your “favorites”, who knows, maybe one day I will turn all this into a book called…”Love – Letters”

EWWW.. What's That Smell!!

What makes a good diaper? We have had Landon now for 2 years and we have seen and smell our share of diapers. But today I am wondering, “What makes a good diaper?” With Alexander (Roger Alexander Love) fast approaching, I am wondering if we should try a different brand of diapers. We use White Cloud brand diapers, (I couldn’t find any good pictures of them on the internet. So I will use the Pampers logo for the time being.)
Anyway, White Cloud has been real good to us. They are pretty cheap, but not cheaply made. They can hold a lot of doo-do and a lot of chewed up crayons and others things that the boy may eat. But Pampers have such cute and adorable commercials. So you see my dilemma. Oh what to do, what to do!

Can Someone Say…? Taste Like Momma’s Been In The Kitchen!

These Stouffer’s “Stuffed – Peppers” are the best pre-made, frozen with artificial coloring, sodium nitrate, glucose, Yellow dye number 6, dehydrated tomatoes, and added preservatives, are the best I have ever tasted. MMM MMM GOOOOOOD!!!
I ate two of them back to back.

Yea… I Can Imagine That!!!

I love the History Channel; this is no big surprise to a lot of people. Tonight was the big show down of my boys the Ohio State Buckeyes vs. the Florida Gators for the NCAA Championship. I wanted to watch it honestly, but the History Channel had a special on tonight about Engineering and Empire, “The Pharos and the Great Pyramids” This show was pretty awesome!
So later on before Cathy went to bed, I was telling her about it. I was saying. “Wow, Cathy, it is funny how we think that we are so much smarter today then we were back years ago. We think cause we been to the moon and have the internet we are in a higher class.” She said “Ok?” She didn’t get what I was meaning. So I tried it again. I said, “No, Cathy, I mean, isn’t it cool how they made those Great Pyramids and The Great Wall of China and other things with out modern tools. Can you imagine building something with out any technology?”
Just then she looked at Alexander growing in her and said with a grin, “Yea, I can sort of imagine that!”


Oops.. Landon found the cake

Landon after he ate the cake!!!
