The lady of the house definitely in control of her domain. 

The Senior Duke of Lower Silesia, with great pride showing off his son's Paul II princely residence in the Houston area of Texas.

While in Florida, we were the honored guests of Sarah and Justin Peters.

​We are exceedingly grateful for their generous as well as gracious hospitality. 

Puma of Texas and Lilly of Florida.

We dedicate these photographs to all cats, because they are the undisputed Lords of many manors and households, exercising sovereign control over their human staff that they have trained to satisfactorily accommodate them over long periods of time.

Three generations in harmonious, happy and cordial "conference."

After bidding our son Paul II and his family a cordial farewell, the Chiefs of the Ducal/Princely House Gulgowski-Doliwa traveled on to FLORIDA​.

A family that does things together will stay together.

Matias and his dad enjoying the many amenities of his playroom while his grandfather, his mother and his sister Maia are looking on.

Prince Paul II, the Duke of Brieg, definitely the least pretentious of the two modern-day Silesian Dukes.

Our primary purpose for having visited the Sunshine State was to decorate 

the Confraternal Knight Dr. Gregg A. Hardman, M.D., with the German Armed Forces

Expert Field Medical Badge that he had earned 44 years ago in Aschaffenburg, Germany, 

as a member of the 3rd Medical Battalion of the 3rd MARNE Infantry Division.

Visiting southwestern Florida also allowed us to store up on sunshine and Paradise-like geography as the photographs below will document.  

The neighborhood that provides homes to great minds in the oil-energy producing community.

Paul II and Matias staying under the multi-colored lights of a roller-skating rink, 

something that Renaissance men just like to do ;-).

Granddaughter Maia snuggling up to her granddad enjoying the very best of quality time together.​
