Great article. Girl power is great, at any age.

When it comes to perfume, I say "right on, sister!" I really hate it when I OD on someone else's scent!

I hear ya girlfriend. My other half gets up at 5:30 a.m. Let's hear it for us night owls! 

I, too, dread my wedding anniversary. You made me laugh and realize we all have something to deal with. Just the same, where will you be celebrating this year so I can be somewhere else? 

I felt compelled to write you on your neat treatise about snow shoveling. I guess I'm not crazy after all.

My wife and I got a chuckle out of your newspaper article "When your dentist throws up his hands."  I especially appreciate that neither the dentist nor the patient were portrayed as the bad guy. Perceptive and amusing. 

You are funny, and people like to read funny pieces; it lightens the daily load.

Thank you for your poignant and well written article. I am confident that mine is not the only heart that your writing touched this Mother's Day. 

I just read your article (twice!!) and had to send you an email to say, THIS IS SO FRIGGIN FUNNY !! I mean, it's sooo true, at least in my world, and my friends.... had me howling and ROTFLMFAO with your au natural column...

I can't remember ever responding to an article or column or anything I've read in the past but I just had to let you know how much I enjoy reading the things you write!  I think it's because I really understand what you're saying and I can relate quite often to the subject matter...  Thanks again for making me (and I' sure lots of other folks) smile!

You are one hilarious very funny writer.  Thanks for making my day brighter and funnier.  I am sharing "Upside Down" with all my women friends...

I absolutely loved your article in this morning's Daily Local News. As I read your piece, I thought to myself, wow, there is someone out there who thinks just like me.

You may not know how to use a snowblower, but you sure have humor down.

Kudos to you! I really enjoyed your article! I do the same thing when I am bored...

I also love soup and have a heated mattress pad. I think this means I need your recipe for roasted tofu, veggies and udon (your "better than geishas" soup). 

Great article this morning. I am a kindred spirit -- looking to avoid the chill in any way.

My husband and I loved the article about photographers! Once again you have looked into my life.

Really enjoyed your article about trying to relax at the beach and getting your spot and having people get super close to you. Just wanted to share and let you know how relatable your story was. Thanks for the laugh on a rainy day!

I got a kick out of your column on Sunday.  It is embarrassing when the Salvation Army rejects the furniture you have been living with, isn't it? 

I've so enjoyed your latest comments about dogs. Buddha sounded like THE BEST.

Your column was so sweet and sad and yet so sincere and caring. 

First time I read you, and I love your humor . Looking forward to your next article. Good to read something different and special and easy to read and funny too.

Your article was hilarious! I was reading it at my office desk and cracking up. It definitely added some levity into my very dry science day.

Sitting on a plane smiling and chuckling about your article in the paper Sunday. My drop of joy in my cup of travel blues!

Loved your column in today's DLN. I'm in the same place and I'll bet plenty of others are, too!

Your charming article about the neighbor who just passed away reminded me of how neighborhoods once were.

And Readers Relate . . .
I am a 96 year old widow living with two middle-age daughters. As soon as I finished reading your column today I took off my faded blue denim jacket and put on a bright red cardigan that was hanging in the back of my closet. I brushed my short white hair – not “boy” short but “Shirley Temple” short, went back to my recliner to see what else I can find to read that will brighten my day. Thank you, Donna!! 
Seriously HILARIOUS!  Loved it, loved the imagery, and especially your interrogation of the attendant.  Really made me laugh out loud on this cold, dreary Sunday morning!  I'm a daily subscriber, and read and love your column on Sundays, but this is the first time I've been compelled to write and thank you!  So, THANK YOU, and keep up the great and hilarious columns.  They're awesome!
Love love loved your column.  I can't think of anything more confusing than buying a mattress except maybe buying a bra, which I wait until the current one does nothing but cover the girls before venturing anywhere near that department.  Keep up the good work.  As I said loved it.
