Your bare bones menu item is something like this:

  $items['mypath/%object'] = array(
    'title' => 'Page title',
    'description' => 'Your description goes here.',
    'access arguments' => array('permission string'),
    'page callback' => 'customer_display',

Then write a function named customer_display() that runs queries the way
Frederik showed you and returns a string containing rendered HTML.
