    Thanks for the offer, but after losing the tip of one finger I have a healthy respect for my cutting tools & have not had any further "incidents" stabbing via the glovers sewing needles does not count

    C5 gloves are handy for gardening if that's of use for you

    But they are thick & no good for manual dexterity - I have to wear them when on site, makes using any electronic tool a real pain!

    Amazon is still sending mysterious rubber ducks to this man | The Northern Echo

    THE mystery of a man who keeps receiving yellow ducks in the post has taken another turn - as Amazon confirms he isn't being scammed.

    Peter Jackson of Ushaw Moor, near Durham, has been driven 'quackers' after receiving one new yellow rubber duck almost every day for the past three weeks.

    Mr Jackson first told The Northern Echo how puzzled he had become after a total of nine rubber ducks had made their way to his home on New Acres.

    Mystery as County Durham man keeps receiving yellow rubber ducks from Amazon
    But in the past week, the 76-year-old has been receiving yet more parcels...and rubber ducks, this time accompanied by some very hilarious messages.

    One message, written by someone called 'Ellie Harris' read: "For your boo boos xxx From Fake Doctor."

    Meanwhile another read: "DUCK, DUCK....QUACK From Goose."

    Speaking to The Echo, Mr Jackson said he still did not know who was behind the mystery parcels but hinted that they appeared to know he had a dog.

    He said: "In the past week, I've had more rubber ducks, some Venison Chew Sticks for my dog and Scottish shortbread.
