Procrastination vs . . .

ok so do i wanna procrastinate or do i wanna hang the new tarps to replace those torn to shreds last night in our directly overhead and all around us t-boomer with big winds----i know more of same is coming--i can smell and see it-- should i just let the old ones finish tearing and get my total money's worth or do i make boat LOOK better by replacement....lemme sit here a while and mess around on line a bit longer as the clouds build and see how long i can hold out....

Re: procrastination vs .......

For just tarps, I personally would probably use up the usefulness then toss it afterwards. No need to look pretty during a T-storm, no one will be around.

Re: procrastination vs .......

Why have the new tarps look just like the old ones. Get your monies worth out of the old ones, then do the new ones.
Plus the noise the old ones make will keep the birds off your spreaders..

The Spanish have the concept Mañana - but some other cultures have not got around to developing a concept to convey that much urgency

Re: Procrastination vs . . .

Just a thought- tarps are probably dirt cheap in Mxco, so the only investment is your time. I guess it depends on how comfortable/dry/shaded/sweaty from replacing tarps you want to be. I would replace, and buy new spares. You know you're gonna need them. Probably tomorrow! lol (Reach over and poke Bubba for me, will ya?)
