Houkulele T-Shirts!

At long last you can get your very own Texas flag-themed Houkulele t-shirt!

The shirts are available in both men's and women's sizes, and I've done my best to keep the price as low as possible: $14 + shipping & hansling.  The goal here is to get them in people's hands rather than make money on the deal.

You can order them from https://teespring.com/houkulele

I've set things up so the shirts go to print every 3 days, so don't freak out if you see that you only have a few days left to order.  I'm hoping to keep them available for a month or two (or more).

Spread the word!
