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!

Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox

Beautiful is not even the right word for today's weather!  Sunny all day and warm, it is indeed hard to believe on a day like today that it is only February 20th in Lassen County.

     Perfect for my walk I took total advantage of it. Matter of fact I am only 895 steps from my daily 5 miles. It is also early. I walked from home to the Post Office and then to the gas station on third and Ash Streets, and it was there I decided I would finally take the picture of what represents Westwood. Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox.
     In the summertime you will rarely drive by and not see tourists taking pictures of these two, in front of our local sheriffs office.Westwood pre-school is also behind it and I have tried taking this picture before but there are usually cars parked out in front which kind of takes away from these two. So for today I have chose these guys, for my picture(s) of the day on an absolutely beautiful Lassen County Day!!!

 
I hope you can see by this pic just how BIG these two are!

The light brown building is the Walker Mansion which will be a post sometime in this year.

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!
