What's up on MLK, Jr. Day???

Since this was MLK, Jr. weekend, Mom chose to do "service" for her club at school. The day after Thanksgiving, she bought a YuDu machine (paid for by the club) to print student t-shirts. Little did she know that the supplies are very expensive and that the task of making silk-screened t-shirts, while not particularly difficult, IS horribly time-consuming and tiring.

Michaels started a sale yesterday with Jerzees t-shirts at $2/each (a 100% savings over regular price), so Mom and Grandma zoomed all over the place buying red, white, and navy blue t-shirts in all manner of sizes. About sixty t-shirts were purchased along with YuDu ink in gold for Mom's club. Uncle James made the original design ... and it's pretty darn cool.

After messing up the first emulsion sheet, Mom finally abandoned the DVD that came with the machine in favor of better instructions on YouTube. The second emulsion came out terrific, and then the assembly line began. T-shirts got washed, dried, printed, dried again, and finally, ironed to heat-set the ink.

We'll let you know how the students feel about the t-shirts. I was able to get some of my fur onto them, so my job is done.

BTW: Happy MLK, Jr. Day to efurryone ... Mom needs a NAP!


Oh, Puffy seems to be recuperating pretty well from his second set of Charmee bites. Charmee is adjusting to the Busparin. Pumpkin needs his teeth cleaned ... Don't tell him, but Grandma is calling Banfield for a dental appointment tomorrow.

Our mom would like to try one of those machines to make t-shirts! Sounds very time consuming.
