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!”

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

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

    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.

    ~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?

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

    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.

    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.”

    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!

    Both men are casually dressed, but technically Rob is more formally attired than Peter, which has got to be a first.

    HANK DAGNY: I wanna go on an NR cruise. I’m too poor. How about a contest where the first person to ask that there be a contest to win a spot on the NR cruise automatically wins the spot on the NR cruise? · 7 hours ago

    This isn’t fair! The second person to mention that there be a contest to win a spot on the NR cruise should automatically win the spot on the NR cruise. It’s patently obvious.

    Flown if you see similarity between Rob Long and this lady, I think you need to get your eyes checked.

    Ah, yes, true Joan. A guess: Peter’s got pleated Dockers with leather loafers; Rob’s going with flowered Tommy Bahama shorts and flipflops. All’s right in the world.

    hahaha, what have we learned from news in the last few days? Expect the unexpected. Successful men are unpredictable. Let’s see, a chance to let lose, in the middle of nowhere with no accountability. Lots of potent cigars and probably drinking. ( Peter’s face looks red).I leave their hidden fashion statement to your creative imagination.
