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!

E Clampus Vitas


The Clampers of E Clampus Vitus 1911 had their "Doin's" this weekend. This is where the men are initiated into the clampers. It is a little hard for me to explain them, but it is a group of men, (no ladies we are NOT allowed) who help all around in our community with different chapters I believe, are all over the Untited States.
They will replace markers on our land that has been thrashed or are missing.
They are the ones packing the sacks of groceries for those that are less fortunate on Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.
In this town they have been known to pay for a funeral or two for the families of those that could not afford an unexpected death. Matter of fact I can not think of one thing that this great group of men won't do in our community if asked, except for one!
Allow women, LOL!!!
These are just pics of their "doin's sign they had this weekend at Goerge Young Park located down the street from us in Pinetown. This is where the big boys go to initiate new recruits and they have a BLAST. My brother-in-law is in it and this weekend his brother-in-law was initiated.
Them men have WAAAAAAY too much fun at this yearly event.
It makes a little ol' mountain girl like me a bit jealous!!!
 
I am just adding the one below to show just how much smoke we are getting here in Pinetown from a fire in Shasta County. The haze of the smoke is awful!!!

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!
