The Schwanke's told Omaha's KETV they've dressed alike for decades. They've got a closet full of 146 combinations. Mel's tie always matches the patterns on Joey's dresses. Another marriage secret from the Schwankes: the couple carves up the day. Mel and Joey each have certain hours to act as boss. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
