Michel Griesner has been celebrating her birthday for many days. Children Lisa Lewis and Traci Griesner hired a limo and took Michel and friends to San Francisco where they had dinner at Scoma’s. Carol Davis hosted a birthday dinner for Michel and Gordon took her to Monterey where they stayed at the Spindrift and toured the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Sunday Michel went to see what the dog was barking at and it was a porcupine! The dog did not get near it thank goodness. There has not been a porcupine around for years.
