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!

Amazed again

Boy I tell ya, I do not know how many times I have said it on this blog and here I go saying it again. Since starting it with the intention (and I am doing really good so far) of taking a photo a day I am AMAZED at the items I notice that I have walked past a million times but never took the time to really see before. Again today is no exception. Since I moved to Pinetown (a separate section of Westwood) 6 years ago, I have seen these two "rounds" on the lawn here, thinking nothing more than a yard decoration. Was it the freezing cold of the day today? Was it the fact I have some really deep things on my mind today? What was the reason that I never noticed that these "rounds" are a horse shoe pit? Yup right there before my eyes. Today I notice the (what I think the metal pole coming from the ground is called) the ringer.
You can just barely see it in front of the farthest "round" in this picture. 
Trust me IT IS there! LOL!!!

 See !!! I told ya so! LOL!!!
Yep the joke is on me. My gosh I simply have NEVER noticed it before, kinda sad. Come summertime I think I just may "stop" by there and see if I can invite myself for a game.
By that time however I should probably know what the "real" name of the ringer pole is called.
Anyone want to help me on that one?
Boy it sure took me forever and a day to see this!

It is funny what you notice. That is a cool horse shoe pit.

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!
