"You are not hurt, Pannier? For God's sake, say that you are not hurt!"
"It's nothing, Gaz. It's a mere scratch."
He had ripped open my lower compartment with his pocket-knife.
"You are right," he cried with an immense sigh of relief. "It is quite superficial. By the Lord, it is as well for you, close-pass driver! If you had killed my pannier, you would not have got out of the courtroom with a driving licence...."

Late this afternoon on the way in to work both of my D-locks managed to fall out of the hole.

I think the time may have finally come to retire it.
