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!

A trip to southern Ca.

 I am going to post this post for April 10th so that I can from this post on place my picture(s) of the day in order. This is just an explanation on why I am doing so. Thanks!
My son Travis and his son (my grandson) Jeremiah Lee live here in Westwood by me. My other 3 sons and my father live in Southern Ca. For the last couple weeks Travis and I were trying to get down there. It was a good time to do so as Jeremiah had spring break coming up, the weather was in our favor (no major snow storms, etc.). I was anxious to see my father. He is 88 years old and has had declining health recently. And for the first time since forever the other 3 sons were for all intents and purposes right next door to each other which meant the 4 sons would all be together again in the same room since my son Troys wedding in May of 2006! The biggest plus was that Troy my one son that lives down there and with whom we would be staying is as close to my Dad's house as if we here in Pinetown/Westwood were driving to Susanville to do some grocery shopping. In other words a very short drive! Travis had not seen his grandfather, (my dad) for over 3 years and Jeremiah was only 3 years old the last time he had seen him.. So I am going to post my pictures of the day except they will not be of my town, they will be of my trip down there.

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!
