(This was a nice even circle.  The squirrels are at it again.)

The ancient mystery is revealed. They worked for peanuts and yet accomplished so much. Tourists now flock to the site to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World:

Are you suggesting that giant squirrels were the creators of Stonehenge and other stone circles in the UK? This is a frame-breaking theory. I suggest you have your academic credentials ready when the editorial board of the Journal of Anthropological Research calls.

LOVE it. I’ll have to show the fur-girls what squirrels can do in a world where dogs don’t yell and chase them…

wow — while in my yard they have been busy trying to carry off one of the hungarian wax peppers that was about 6 inches long — they must think it is going to be a cold winter and they need some HEAT!

no doubt in your area they have heard the story about the 3 little pigs — building with brick is better — warn them about earthquakes and unreinforced masonery!

Your other commenters have vivid imaginations! Let’s see … Maybe the squirrels have invented a new sport called, um, Bricking, or maybe, Run Around the Brickyard. Hmmm?

Evidence of Squirrelolithic activity at Brickhenge. Execellent. Twinsetellen should review your piece before submission to a peer-reviewed academic journal.

FYI: My niece did successfully manage to have her baby on 8-9-10. All her other babies were induced, and this little guy even came on his own! He was born at 10:20 PM, so he just barely made it. I suppose it would have been cooler if he held out for 11:12, but that would have been an extra hour of labor.
