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!


Red headed woodpecker

This Red headed woodpecker has been a constant companion now at my house for weeks. I have been unable to capture him with my camera. I don't know if it makes any sense but when I WAS able to do so today, it was right in the middle of a cloudburst along with lightning coming up over "my mountain" not quite hitting us yet. Matter of fact all the birds outside were acting strange.
So for todays picture(s) , a Red headed woodpecker frozen on the apple tree.
In this one he is actually looking over at the storm approaching. You can see the street is still dry, but it came right after this picture was taken. It only lasted maybe 10 minutes

Howdy Hi!
I would love to hear what you have to say. Why not leave me a comment?

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!
