2009 San Miguel Calendar
Enter the female business owners of San Miguel who decided to have their own calendar in a "cheesecake" fashion. Gutsy move, in my opinion. Many are friends. They are all hard working women. Tastefully done, tongue in cheek, some of the proceeds go to "organizations that work with the blind and vision impaired". For more information you can go to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to purchase a calendar. I, of course, bought one in support of the women.
Then, enter the outraged citizens, whoever they many be, who deluged the local newspaper saying it is pornography and presents a terrible image of San Miguel. Honestly people - get a life. It reminds me of the people who complained when the City of Houston used cowboys in their tourism literature, saying that it didn't give a "sophisticated" image of Houston. HA.
We'll see if the Garden Club returns next year with their scenes of San Miguel - albeit not quite as fleshy, oops flashy. AND how many women line up to be in the next "ladies" calendar.
