OK...I'm going to hazard a guess then regarding this cryptic reply...
"Dear Old Usher,
You don't miss a trick, do you? Have a guess: why would a man who can afford a second-hand cashmere coat only buy one shoe?
Long John Silver is going upscale ???? I do recall Tom had a bit regarding doing Long John Silver in his book.
IS there a new "Treasure Island" in the works?
Of course I'll never get the answer....
Jack Sparrow's FATHER???
That was one idea that popped up....
But I'd didn't know Disney was planning to revisit that series. Maybe someone can find out. That makes me laugh as I was reading one of the Star Wars spin off books where Luke still has a thing for the Princess. Obviously written before the second movie came out.
I'm still leaning on something to do with Long John Silver. Maybe an audio of "Treasure Island" is in the works.
