Did you ever see an abbreviation and not know what it meant?

I came upon a port of entry that said n o la. and I kept saying to myself,
what is that???? nola - it simply did not make sense.

Several hours later and many records later, I realized it was New Orleans,
Lousianna.

*Duh*, I feel real Stupid. I'm supposed to be an experienced researcher.
Just goes to prove we can all learn something new.
