I first met Cass and Lesley in their flat at Coogee (I think), around 1970. They had a son Daniel, possibly the only couple at the time with a child and I was fascinated. One Sunday afternoon when Bob and I visited, Cass had just completed a census form, he had a strange twisted sense of humour and had written many strange responses to the questionnaire .. I was impressed. Lesley and I met frequently at Brisbane Street Clinic and I found her to be a quick thinking, intelligent chick .. she was an eternal student. Lesley or 'Mindless' to her friends later blossomed as a Drug Councillor. Cass who can be contacted on Facebook is now a famous actor, with many films under his belt.
Just received the saddest news .. Lesley 'Mindless' Armstrong passed away July 26 2010 .. I have many photos of Cass and Lesley and will update post at a later date.
