"Actually, we liv an average type of life in al our activities except for the tra says Mrs. Osbourne. "The fair life has been goot Mr. Osbourne said he quit law school to go into the entertain ment field and has no regrets "The only thing is that I wish had finished my education Once you have that, nobody can take it away from you." With their children, Kim, 14 Mike, 13 and Mark, 9, the Os bourne's feel completely a ease in the atmosphere of the midway. "Ln fact, I would rather our children be loose on the mid- way than in our neighborhood in Georgia because the midway is a close knit group and all the people look out for the chil- she said. "The old thoughts about peo- >le associated with a fair ba- ng atho ists or thiefs is rat true. In fact, I am certain (here are no workers with the fair who even use drugs." On the lighter side, Mrs. Os- bourne said she "plays the part of taxi fcr all the friends of her children" who seem to con- gregate in her back yard. Social life while her husband is away is varied with a mem- bership in tile country club, par- ticipation in the bowling league and activities in the Parents- Teacher Association.

Mike is a football player for the Ca'holic school aU the chil- dren attend. Mark is the star quarterback for the Grey and White team for his school. What do the Osbourne's do in Canada when they are not work- ing? "Sight seeing, shopping and fishing have to rate as the mcst exciting for us in said Mrs. Osboume. "We have been spending nitDst of our time in beautful Hen- derson Lake park, using a char- coal grill for cooking. The toys like to fish but so far tney haven't had any luck. Nifcka Yuko Japanese Garden is on our agenda of things to see. "The lovely sales in the down- town stores are a real treat for me but my husband says I am going to "sale" him into the poor house." Mrs. Osbourne said she loves the Canadian food but, "I've gained 10 pounds since we en- tered Canada tes than a nraith ago."
