Come walk into the light.
The Golden Years beach resort was inspired. Its slogan was not. (90)

She had been privileged to live in luxury. Visitors envied the expansive home, but she treasured golden sand, blue seas and swaying palms. (140)

Confusion immobilized Monty. Which room was his?
Door #1? Door #2? Door #3? (77)

I’ve become jaded in my old age. I used to enjoy Let’s Make A Deal. Now it looks like a long commercial. I did feel a bit of nostalgia for $4000 Buicks.

    Another great micro triplet! I love the slogan. Funny how different some tv shows seem when we look back at them.

    Nicely written GMa, “from the master’s hand.” :)
    If you want a basically unchanged program watch the Family Feud. We have two episodes daily at noon.

    Great trio but I like the second one best. I used to write MF before but the blog was discontinued. I hope to go into S.Yours more often forthwith! Thanks GrandMa!

    Loved the first one, I can just imagine someone coming up with such a slogan and the board of directors voting to use it. LOL
