    Overlapping Letter

    Now this puzzle is my own creation (not all that clever), and it can be a little tough. The clues are sometimes like those you find in a crossword puzzle. You know what I mean.

    The clue on the left will imply a single word answer which is made up of two conjoined words. One letter will overlap and be used in each word.

    Example:

    A. Everything On Site = Allocation

    All and Location are the two words implied by the clue that make up Allocation which is the answer word. Everything implies All, and On Site implies Location. The letter 'L' is the overlapping letter (or the one that ends the first word and is the beginning of the second word from the clue).

    You think you can do it? Here's another example with answer hidden.

    B. Donkey Collection =
    Spoiler:
    Asset. Donkey = Ass and Collection = Set. Together, the clue implies Asset. The 's' is overlapped or used in each word.

    Excellent job, Abstractionist! I'll give you a hint for the ones you left out.

    Dog Udder (Could just as well have been 'Cat Udder' or 'Hamster Udder' and we don't call them udders)

    In Favor Of Relaxing (Where is a good place to relax?)

    Brief Trip in a Circle (Another word for a brief trip and a circle)


    Currency Lasso (The French Franc doesn't exist anymore)
