3WW, The Final Chapter (and Week No. 538)

This is it, boys and girls. 

The last Three Word Wednesday. 

We've had a good run here at 3WW (more than 10 years), but the contributors are dwindling and Mr. Linky is up for renewal, so I think it's a good time to sign off.

It has been a genuine pleasure to be your host for the last several years, after Bone started this thing 10 years ago. 

I will miss reading your stories, poems, fiction. But everything that begins needs an end. 

As with past weeks, post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky (but please, link to the exact post, not your blog, by clicking on the exact post title and paste it to Mr. Linky below). As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

And, I do invite everyone to check back to read and comment on other contributions. This is, after all, a community for writers, poets and bloggers who clamor for your feedback. Share with friends. Tweet the love.

Your final three words are:

Goodbye, exclamation: farewell, adieu, au revoir, ciao, adios; bye, bye-bye, so long, see you later, see you, sayonara; bon voyage; cheers; noun: parting, leave-taking, send-off.
