If you bumped it as you went by, it would fall off. A couple months ago I finally got around to fixing it. As I was placing some screws to keep it in place, Taylor walked by and asked what I was doing. I told him I was fixing the railing. His face got just a little sad and he said, "I'll miss it. It always reminds me of "It's a Wonderful Life."
