Custom Powder Systems



Dale McIntoshPresident

I find art in a well struck nine iron slightly cut into the wind with just enough backspin to make you think it might go in the hole and watching a great punter find the coffin corner at the 1 yard line. I enjoy walking and working out; mostly the feeling when finished. Other things I really enjoy: fine red wine served at 68 degrees F (slowly warming to 71); anywhere and anytime with my lovely wife. I love my cat (a first for me at 60+)… my dog reminds me that love exists without conditions and displaying pure joy is the best way to express love and devotion. My cat plays with my heart and toys with my mind. She is probably God’s messenger sent to remind me that I am not nearly as important, intelligent, or controlling as I think I am. I love my children (all three of them) just as they are. The grey hair and experience part is frankly really an annoyance to me because I do want to live forever.
