Last Saturday, I added a rail to the front steps. Since the graduation reception is this weekend and there would be people with more years behind them than I, it seemed prudent to add the hand rail so that no one would accidentally take a header off the porch. That would ruin my day. Some day, I will rebuild the steps much wider and with more historically sensitive moldings. For now, though, it will help my dad and mom make it up and down without killing themselves.
