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!

A Forgotton Tree House Day 55

As I was out walking my dogs and looking for a picture to take today for this blog, I was a little startled to find that I had walked by this tree a million times and never noticed the remnants of what looks like a childs tree house.
What had caught my eye and was ready for my camera was this beautiful Poplar tree in all it's beautiful colorful wonder. A wood I use quite often in my woodworking, which you can see at Wood Alley. Why pass up the opportunity of shameless blog Promotion Eh?
So I stopped and snapped these few pictures and noticed that had this had possibly been a child's tree house, this tree had the definitive steps to get up to it built by mother nature herself.


Wow I bet this was a fun time in it's day.
Can you just imagine it at this time of year?
See Mother Natures ladder on the left?
The house stands empty now. No children out here playing. It sits like so many others with a For Sale sign on the front lawn.

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!
