  1. in reply to a letter to the editor about retirees downsizing. I believe there is a simple solution to get me and many others out of our tooo big family homes. I have been looking for three years to downsize. All we want is a home with two good size bedrooms, two bathrooms., no baths as we can’t get in them, and definitely two toilets if two seniors are going to live there. We also want a shed for my husband to tinker, minimal garden. Wall over so we do not need to bend to get the heavy roast out of the oven. We also need to have a garage for the car where we can open both doors. It seems that to downsize to a smaller block on a single level, no stairs, we are then offered tiny retirement units. There is no in between. We would be out in a flash if we could find the right property, as would a few of our friends.
