You know the one where you have two words like fish - mix and you have to find one word which will come after the first, and also before the second, to make another word or phrase? In this example it was "cake"

I went one further and though of putting two words, in themselves a word or expression, to link two others in the ense of

cheese number? >>>> (cheese) rolling pin (number)
or
electric sandwich? >>>> (electric) fan club (sandwich)
or even
Associated ship? >>>> (Associated) Board member (-ship)

Here's a couple (OK, a couple of couples) to start with

role pepper

scratch keeper

diminished sent

below key

There's a virtual pint for anyone who finds a good two-word filling which isn't the one I intended biggrin.gif

My original was play ground

card game keeper was my original for the other one so "card shop" is that maggiemay? is the pintworthy alternative blink.gif smile.gif
