Custard's Last Stand Dan Blaine DBLIVIT blaine@eucom.mil As DBLIVIT climbed on the stage, he found that he had the last seat available. Sitting across from him was a man in a derby hat, wearing a red and white striped shirt with arm bands and suspenders holding up a pair of corduroy trousers. As DBLIVIT greeted him, he looked up and asked DBLIVIT if he was from SI. Upon hearing the stranger's dialect, DBLIVIT immediately recognized a landsman!

"Who are you, and what are you doing out here in the middle of nowhere?" asked DBLIVIT.

As a response, the stranger handed DBLIVIT a business card. It stated: "Music for all occasions; from wakes to weddings, from bar mitzvahs to birthdays, dances to dirges, public or private clubs, short or long gigs, Jimmy Febb equipped and trained Richard DerGott can do it all. And at fair and reasonable rates!"

DBLIVIT asked him: "Mr. DerGott, are you the piano player hired by Butch Cassidy to play at her joint up in Laramie?"
