It's Summer!!!

Vacation has started and Pam, Anna, Lulu, Jack 'n Jill, Tommy, Mike, Rosalie -- all the kids around Wiggins are ready to savor summer.

To celebrate, the Pals will hold their next sleepover at Pam's on Friday, July 2 starting at 6 pm Eastern time. Virtual sleepovers are a ton of fun, I give virtual pony and horse lessons and shows in one room, Pam, Anna and Lulu usually host a "20 Questions" pony-themed guessing game in another room.

Just like our Live Moderated Chat, all entries are read by a live human adult before they can display.

Mr. Kline is proud to announce that he now sells fancy western boots for members to wear on their avatars. Just click on "shoes" in the Kline's store in downtown Wiggins. Our first pair has red uppers and black vamps. And there are two new colors of English high field boots, light and dark brown.

There are new quests to try in Wiggins,too. We are up to almost 50 of them. They change all the time and we keep adding new ones. For the first time, one quest even goes to the clearing on the Wiggins Estate trail.

Members can now buy Wiggins Bucks for their pals. We have even made a whole new mini video that explains how to use our online WB buying steps. Click on our new "Buy Bucks" button to have a look.

All of our pages now have a new button layout along their top edge.

With the Fourth of July weekend just around the corner, our artists are working full speed to have ready special holiday cabin decorations.
