3WW Week No. 485

As you well know, each week I post three words. You write something using the words.

Then come back and 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 now for a serious question - has 3WW run its course? We're nine years into this and participation is diminishing. Should I continue to offer up words? Please let me know in an email to tgabrukiewicz(at)gmail(dot)com.
