Back on November 8, Donnie and I (along with six other Young Marrieds) spread out around Corvallis downtown to give out free hugs. Donnie and I stationed ourselves at the south end of the Farmer’s Market and probably gave out over 50 hugs. Though it was raining and windy, we lasted an hour and a half. It was a lot fun. Most people who saw us gave us hugs. Others just smiled and still others gave out and received long-distance hugs because we were quite wet.
