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!

An old woodshed and it's memory's Day 43

It used to be that in Westwood and Pinetown you would see barns/wood sheds like this all over. Not so much any more. We are die hards however and this is the outside of our wood shed. The one thing that is so cool as all these old things hanging around were my husband Dave's grandfathers whom used to own this house until his death. So for Dave it is a trip down memory lane. For me, I think it is just awesome, for two reasons mainly. #1 would be that Dave kept all this stuff that so many would probably call junk, and #2 is the fact that we live in an area that we don't have to worry about someone vandalizing this or wrecking it etc. I realize to a lot of younger folk this is all shit. To my husbands grandfather these were the axes used to keep his family warm etc. Out in the valley such as Janesville sometimes you will see those two or three story barns decorated like this . It always brings a smile to me as I know there is such a story behind all those items that others perceive as crap!

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!
