When Laurie Ford of Gulf Breeze saw the Council on Aging of West Florida's call for senior citizens to appear in a benefit calendar, she immediately nominated her lovely stepmother-in-law, Jacque Spirson-Ford.They're $20 plus postage: Get it from the Council on Aging of West Florida. Read about it at the Pensacola News-Journal.
The only hitch? She didn't realize it was a "nearly nude" calendar.
"It was like, 'Whoops!'" Ford said, laughing. "I didn't know until Jacque called to tell me she'd been contacted about doing a nude calendar. Of course, she thought it was funny."
The 79-year-old Spirson-Ford, who was photographed lounging on a motorcycle with her dog, Oscar, is one of several area senior citizens who dared to bare it all (behind some carefully placed props) for the council's 2009 "Perfectly Aged" calendar. The popular calendar series, now in its third year, is the agency's largest fundraiser.
