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.
