A little background on why I named this blog what I did.

I should probably do a little explaining on my title of this blog. First my last name is White. Therefore I live in the "White House." Living in the "White House" makes me the 1st Lady. My physical address says I live in Westwood Ca. (not the one by Los Angeles) but a little mountain town in Northeastern Ca. However I really live in a section out of Westwood known as Pinetown. With all the joking going on between my friends, I inevitably became Pinetowns 1st Lady living in the "White House." With all that said, this is just going to be a more personal blog of my life here in Westwood/Pinetown. My family and friends being a big part of it.
Originally I really wanted to take a picture a day for one year and post it on this blog. Perhaps like a photo diary. My life though is quite quiet and perhaps is not photo worthy for a picture a day but I plan on trying. So why not hop in and take a ride with me through little mountain town U.S.A. You may just love it as much as I do!

Fire Hydrant for Day 16

Today I took the dogs all over Pinetown for a long walk. It was a beautiful day, but you can feel the fall coming in these mountains. Cool in the mornings now. It sure does not look like we are going to get any rain like I wrote about yesterday. But that is so typical of Lassen County. You really do not know what the weather will be like from day to day . I have seen it real nice and warm here and then have snow on the ground the next evening.
This is just an old fire hydrant I thought I would snap a picture of. It is located a round the corner from the "White House."
It almost looks like it has a fairly new coat of paint on it, and if I am right then most likely the Prisoners from the California Correctional Center (or C.C.C.) came out and did it. The prisoners from that prison do an awful lot for this community, such as clearing brush, they clear snow from the hydrants in the winter. etc. They even use to keep the cemetery really well kept. I just don't think they are still doing that any more. The upkeep there (at the cemetery) just is not the same anymore.

View Larger Map This is where I live. To the right of Westwood barely visible is the little section I live in called Pinetown. We have probably 150 to 200 people for our population. Westwood on the other hand is HUGE by comparison with a population of around 2000!
