The Happy Chef is looking good on I-135 South. Seems to enjoy his new career as a chimney sweep.

Chimney Sweep - Dimwit

I've known of this "dimwit" character for years. He's located at about mile marker 56 on North I-35 near McPherson, right off the highway and you can't miss him. I don't have any info on him other than he is currently advertising for a Chimney Sweep.

Happy Chef - Chimney Sweep

Since the Happy Chef is rapidly disappearing, I was gratified to find one reborn as a chimney sweep at M.P. 54/55 on I-135 in Kansas - just south of McPherson and near a turn-off to a place called Elyria.

Happy Chef - Chimney Sweep

Large Chimney sweep on the side of I-135 between Wichita and McPherson Kansas. Used to be a large baker with a wooden spoon poised in front of a greasy spoon in McPherson, KS. Bought and renovated into a chimney sweep a couple of years ago.
