Back from Annual Inspection

Well, the airplane is back from annual, and it was a big one!  We had 2 cylinders repaired due to low compression, an expensive fuse swapped out, a landing gear issue repaired and numerous other small things.  I flew it back from GMU a few days ago and she seemed happy to be in the air again. After 6 weeks of no pilot time, it felt slightly weird to be in command again, but I sure liked it.   I plan to get out and take her up for a few local flights soon to gain more confidence in the engine repairs and knock more rust off my skills. In 2 months I have to go back to get two explosive parachute line cutters swapped out, and then later we'll be back to get a new anti-ice-fluid pump installed.  Nothing involving aircraft is cheap.
