When Fiona came for her Monday overnight last week, she helped Grammy Ellie fix wonderful fresh crab.

That crab is huge, and I can't believe Fiona didn't run out of the room! Brave girl.

A wonderful image for Fiona's memory book!
I've never seen a large crab like that ... and realize that it's been cooked and cooled for handling. I'm not sure about putting one that size into boiling water, though. Do they 'fight it' by stretching out their 'arms'?
