Fighting Communism On The Front Lines

Hello from the NR Cruise, where today we are just off the coast of Cuba, on our way to Jamaica (site of a Ricochet meet up at Evita’s in Ocho Rios 12PM — join us if you’re in the neighborhood). For those of you who can’t make it, here’s Rob and Peter in front of Castro’s Communist Worker’s Paradise. “Mr. Castro, tear down this…cabaña!”

  1. David Williamson

    Are you sure that’s not the coast of California?

  2. Bereket Kelile

    Fighting communism huh? Yeah, and it looks like you guys are fighting real hard-more like fighting off a sunburn. 

  3. Fred Cole

    Rob, Peter needs your sunglasses.

    From each according to their means, to each according to their needs.  When in Cuba, do as the Cubans do.

  4. Colin B Lane

    Fighting to stay awake looks more like it.

  5. Joan of Ark La Tex

    They look very different from their avatars.

  6. Richard Fulmer
    Rob Long

    ~Paules: Guys, if your intention is to fight communism, why not just stay home?

    Good point!

    So, will Cuba become the 51st state during the next four years?  It could replace California as the national bellweather.

    Dare I suggest that Mr Robinson play Mr Roberts and Mr Long to play Ensign Pulver but that plant down on the deck looks like it needs some help…Doug Roberts: I looked down from our bridge and saw our captain’s palm tree! Our trophy for superior achievement! The Admiral John J. Finchley award for delivering more toothpaste and toilet paper than any other Navy cargo ship in the safe area of the Pacific. 

    Ensign Pulver: Captain, it is I, Ensign Pulver, and I just threw your stinkin’ palm tree overboard! Now what’s all this crud about no movie tonight?

  8. Recovering Liberal

    How about a podcast from Havana?

  9. DutchTex

    I hate that.

    That looks like a much nicer deployment than I have experienced! Enjoy!

  11. Astonishing

    The two Greek gods of sea travel: Veisalgia and Kinetosis.

    (But which is which?)

  12. EJHill

    Cuba can enter the Union with Puerto Rico. Two Democrat senators from PR and two Republicans from freedom loving Cuba!

  13. Frozen Chosen

    I see Peter is using the spf8000 suncreen.

    Feel free to get a little color, Mr Robinson.

    Good to see Rob sporting a breast cancer awareness tan.  And the Jackie-O sunglasses, ….perfect!  If you get tired of cruises and want to try a trucker’s tan, lemme know.

    Hah!  Dave, my people don’t tan.  They pink.

    And I’ll have you know that no less than Steve McQueen wore those kinds of shades.

    Ahh pinkos.. see what happens when you sail to close to the you know who..

    Nick Stuart: Peter looks vaguely like Ed Begley Jr. in the photo.

    “So what ever happened to Nick Stuart?”

    “He’s blogging over at FullKenneth.”

  19. Joan of Ark La Tex

    Those of us who cannot afford the boring Cuban cruise can cruise-skate on Ricochet’s COC thin ice.  Thanks for creating Ricochet, guys. Have fun and stay away from the Pirates!
