Meet Lobster Claus...

This Santa is a tribute to my wonderful late cousin, Johnny Botello, a fishing boat captain from Massachusetts. I visited his home as a child and can remember seeing just the claw from a giant lobster that he and his crew had caught that seemed to take up most of the dining table! Everyone raved and raved about how delicious it was but I refused to eat it (I have never eaten lobster in my life!) – and his wife, Connie, had to cook a hamburger for me… Yep, I was a little pain in the derrière…

Here are more detailed photos of Santa on my Just Clauses site.

Bravo! I think he's your best one yet! I love the expression, and how you've draped the netting. He'll be on his way soon!

Connie, he's a masterpiece! Lobster is lovely, you should try it - just don't let them muck it up with cheese sauce and stuff!
