Am I the only one who has no idea what this saying means?

This one I know.....Dear Departed Momma used it all the time.If you get a loose thread in your sweater and you give it a stitch right away instead of putting it off, it saves you nine stitches later.You got a loose hinge on a door? Replace the screw now, otherwise you'll be rehanging the door.
It is similar to the one "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."In the dirt bike world we had a saying..."An one pound of unspring weight is worth five pounds of sprung weight." Meaning: You can increase performance more when you reduce weight below the suspension springs than anywhere else.
My uncle used to say something this back when I was young. I think he was talking about his time in Italy, and had something to do with killing the enemy arty spotters before they dump all over you.
So why don't they just say, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."Or"Kill the enemy arty spotters before they dump all over you."Then I wouldn't have all this . . . ANGST.
"A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE"Ask your rigger before your next jump... *g*
It means "Put ice on the beer now instead of waiting till you're ready to start drinking...it'll be colder".Nuff said.
