Coup de grace

We want to own our things rather than have them own us.   Through the years we've been relentless in throwing out, recycling or giving away things we no longer want or use  We intentionally set goals to stay on course.   Thistle, a Class B van, 18.5 feet long, will become our full-time home and a metaphor for our lives.   Thistle will provide the conduit for staying true to our values.  Too many things will interfere with our lives.

With that in mind, our galley 's tools became critical as we wanted to eat well but with ease.  Our biggest coup de grace was tossing the microwave.  Off with it's head!  Filling the empty space is a Vitamix allowing us daily smoothies.  Some of our friends and family looked askance at our action, but we stood our ground, and on this first trial run we were overjoyed with our decision.
