A little white smoke is normal, fuel does not atomize well until the engine warms up but is likely if you have a high mileage engine that the valve guides are a little worn and you may need to add oil between services.

i would agree a little white smoke is normal from the moisture built up in the exhaist system overnight ,, also on a high mileage vehichle valve guides might be worn as well , this is normal , unless you are having overheating problems or running problems ,, i would not be concerned
