Walkleys mark 71 years
Stewart and Fay Walkley celebrated their 71st anniversary on October 25.
MARRIAGE has its ups and downs, and no one knows that better than the Walkleys.
Stewart and Fay celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary last week with a lunch in Bendigo.
And what do the 94- and 95 year-old have to say about the big occasion?
Well, not all that much — because they’ve been through it all, side by side.
‘‘I catch up to him (in terms of age) for 12 days of the year and I tell him he’s no longer the boss,’’ Fay said.
‘‘I haven’t been boss for 71 years,’’ Stewart quipped back.
But the pair are showing no signs of slowing down yet — congratulations on the milestone.
