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!

Another old empty building!

Sad but so very true another beautiful old building sitting on our main drag (LOL!!! That always cracks me up when I say our main drag as it has half a dozen business's on it) that sits with the familiar bright orange For Rent sign in the window. This is right across the street from Young's market (our one and only in town store) and the other side of the street is Chuck's railroad room (our one and only bar) For me all this is sad. This town, even since I moved here 30 years ago always was booming a lot more than it can even think about doing now. One of these days I am going to have to realise that the town I love sooo much is dying a slow death. (That is my opinion)




On a great note however, it was an absolutely beautiful day, weather wise!!!

Oh, keep on mentioning places in your town by name, ok? I love it. I remember Young's Market well--I would so often take my daughter there after church for a popsicle for the drive home to Chester. Ah memories.... tho' I'm sorry your town isn't growing in a healthy way. :( Blessings, Debra

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!
