    “How is AARP not storming the packaging plants with torches and pick-axes?” — funny!

    BTW I am unable to see the photo of tools on my iPhone 6, but I do see the pill bottles.

      Ooh, did I say they were pictured? I had planned to do a photo of them but went with the bottles instead because the light is terrible this morning.

    I totally agree! The cap on my tylenol has an arrow that has to line up to open. I have to find my reading glasses each time and even when I line them up I can’t get it open! I live with all adults, why do I have to put up with this?

      Those bottles are hard for me too, my reattached hand doesn’t have much feeling in it. I think options ought to be available for adults who don’t ever have children in their homes.

    Thanks for the head’s up on the DNA kit 🙂

    In addition to special tools I keep a sweat towel handy.

    I feel your pain. I can’t open child proof anything, from meds to household cleaners.
