April 11, 1927: “all up in arms”

Monday the eleventh
A beautiful day but very windy. Audrea went to school. Mrs Johnson in to see about renovating the bedrooms. Am so afraid Amos + May will walk in before their room is ready. One cannot get anything one wants. Later. Clarence got Edith’s bedroom kalsomined in pink, dont like it too much of a good thing which makes it good for nothing. We were all up in arms, so of course some one had to come in. The last people we expected, Lill + Harry with Richard. We had not even changed our dresses + looked awfully, but we were very glad to see them + had a very pleasant time.  Amozelle came in with her oil bottle but it did not calm the troubled waters a bit I wish we were miles away from it all.

On this day in history: April 11, 1927 (Monday)

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland officially ceased to exist at the end of the day, as the Royal and Parliamentary Titles Act 1927 took effect at midnight. In an acknowledgment of the separate Irish Free State, the nation was renamed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

    Hi Mariana, You’re back!! The saga continues. Just wondering…” Mrs Johnson in to see about renovating the bedrooms.” This makes be think the Johnson’s own the property? You might have to refresh my memory, did you ever make a link between Clarence and the Johnsons?

      Hey Al!! Yeah, trying to catch up now! I’ll get back on track soon, in fits and spurts, but soon!
      Yes, so this DOES support the previous theory that the Johnsons are, in fact, the landlords. Here’s a link to all the posts in which the Johnsons are mentioned. It’s always with a degree of formality. And there was that map that listed the name Johnson on a neighboring property (Which might be the same property, but we had the number confusion).
