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!

The wood trucks are taking over. Day 33

Cold, wet, windy, rainy, cloudy, dark, and nasty miserable weather today and I could not be happier. The surrounding area here has needed a good shower for a very long time. It is our first of the season, hell all summer also. Just last week the Forest service lifted the ban on wood cutting. It was hoot owl all last week, which many of us are so thankful for. (Hoot owl is when the woods are opened until 1 P.M. in the afternoon for wood cutting) but closed after that because of increased fire danger. With the way it has been raining and storming, perhaps they will even lift hoot owl. On the other hand, if it gets too wet and muddy out in the woods, they may close it down due to that. It's hard on the forest floor when it is being driven on in that situation. It puts ruts, holes, etc. in the roads, and among other things that brings difficulty for our firefighting personnel in case of a forest fire.
This is another little thing I love about my town. This week when driving in town you begin to see the wood trucks out on the road. The little drive around town cars are being put up for the winter and the wood trucks are being seen once again. We are no exception to this. This is ours, getting all loaded up and ready for a day of woodcutting tomorrow hopefully. Bought by my husband brand new in 1979, this Ford F250 4 wheel drive has definitely seen better days. Matter of fact 29 years worth.

F.Y.I. I do not know whether this is like this in all of the United States but in California any car that is over 25 years old is considered a classic.

Yea this has been a good truck for "the President" of the White House. Since I became the First Lady almost 6 years ago, we have never spent a dime on this truck, (except for the normal wear and tear) of course.

And she's up and running and ready to go through another year of that wear and tear!

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!
