: : Does anyone have any knowledge of the phrase "What you got on the string today?" Or is that something that was made up by someone?

: One of the definitions of string is "a series of things arranged in or as if in a line".

: So when someone utters your phrase he or she is asking what is on your plan or agenda for today.

: Just a guess.

Could it be a reference to fishing? Back in the 1900's (or then abouts), wasn't string used as a crude fishing line?
