In 1957 Donald designed those ornamental plastic flamingos you’ve probably seen stabbed into lawns across the US (kind of a big deal).
But together the couple are known for something completely different – they’ve worn the same outfit for thirty-five years.
When they first met, Donald always wore stuffy suits even during hot summer days.
So Nancy sewed him a short sleeved shirt as a gift and made herself an outfit with the excess fabric.
Thirty-five years later and Nancy continues to sew Donald’s shirts, making herself a matching get-up each time.
Now if that’s not love, I don’t know what is.
