I would take it to mean "on the line"; but that is a new one.

Evidence of poor grammar is certainly obvious when viewing posts on other sites. It angers me to see the poor usage of there, their, etc. We learned usage at home. Mother was a stickler for good grammar, as she knew it. Also, manners, we were never allowed to say shut the door, it was close the door. God forbid we would say , "Shut up" to anyone. We could use "Be Quiet" instead. I must sound terribly antiquated to young people.
What is a "Garmin" ??? My OTL guess - off the length-- If the outside is folded down over the lining. the lining would be cut shorter? ..if it is a piece to be used to make handles..that would be about right.. I sometimes wonder what other letters mean. makes for lots of puzzles..(puzzles are supposed to wardoffalsheimers)LOL
I am with all of you, those abbreviations are puzzling to us who have learned spelling long ago. We are loosing so much without spelling and writing. Today, how can they tell if something is spelled wrong unless it is on the computer that tells them.
I also hate signs that appear different places such as along the road. I catch myself talking to them and telling them to write what you want me to know, I can read.
I worry about the younger generation.
On the topic of grammar, spelling, change-making, and general other declining abilities: Today I was volunteering at my child's school and I had someone ask me to proofread something they had just written. I pointed out that she had used "compliment" when she meant "complement" and her response was "I'm sure nobody else will care either." (meaning the people to whom she was sending it). I was a bit taken aback...and I won't be proofreading for her again!!
Sew many ideas ... just sew little time!!
