You remember picture day at school. Mom always had special clothes set out and fussed over getting your hair just right.
But what about teachers? Do they stress over what to wear for that one time smile into the camera?
Dale Irby decided not to and he came up with a great way to do it. Dale has worn the same clothes for picture day for the past 40 years.
Irby just retired from Richardson, Texas and put together a time lapse of his pictures through the decades.
Dale told the Dallas Morning News the whole thing started by accident. “I was so embarrassed when I got the school pictures back that second year and realized I had worn the very same thing as the first year.”
Dale’s wife thought that was funny so she dared him to do it again.
He did and a tradition was born that lasted longer than most marriages and careers.
Take a look at the video below.
