Kansas Chimey Guy!

Every year when we drive to and from Nebraska, we drive past this cheery chimney sweep on the side of I-135 in central Kansas. This year I finally got it together to take two (really bad) pictures of him. It is hard to take a picture of something on the side of the interstate when you aren't quite sure when it is going to show up and your windows are all dirty. For future reference, it is between Wichita and Salina, near McPherson (which is where the actual business the little guy advertises is located -- this site also includes a better picture of him). He is about nine miles north of the exit for Moundridge, Kansas, which is one of my favorite vaguely sexual place names that we drive by every year (also on that list: Flower Mound, Golden Triangle, and Braman). So everyone wave to the Chimney Guy! We will make sure to say hi for you when we drive by him again next year...

Huh. He didn't wave back.

There's a Church of the Brethren college in McPherson.
You would certainly get a good giggle at all the references to Indian Mounds I get to read.
