A strange event took place a few years back. Tommy was well known by all the townsfolk. He had been in the forces and had been invalided out, having lost an eye in a skirmish with the enemy. The medicos gave him a glass eye, but, having read about transplants and having sight restored but his doctors told him it COULD be done but only if they could find a donor with eyes the EXACT colour oh his good eye, which was a very bright blue. One night, as he walked along the street, a car came round a bend at high speed and crashed into a lamp post. Tommy went to check on the driver but has was dead. His eyes were open and Tommy noticed they were the same colour as his! On an impulse he took his penknife and removed one eye from the dead man’s head. Then he took out his glass eye and pushed it into the gaping socket. He rushed to the hospital and should it to the medical team. After carrying out test, they transplanted the eye into Tommy’s head. Two weeks later he could see perfectly and was happier than he had been for a long time. But he still thought about the driver and one night he stopped at the scene of the tragedy and stood in silence, A local policeman came along and Tommy told him he was just paying his respects to the unfortunate victim. “Aye”, said the PC, “That was a strange one, right enough. It’s puzzled the traffic cops as to what happened. We know his name and where he was from, but what’s puzzling us is, HOW DID HE DRIVE HERE FROM INVERNESS WITH TWO GLASS EYES???”
