Bill never fails to deliver the great RoadsideWonders goods! How about this totally awesome GIANT pistachio nut at McGinn’s Pistachio Tree Ranch!

I just visited their website and a burlap bag of ranch-flavored pistachio nuts suddenly jumped in my online shopping cart. Can’t wait for UPS to come knocking on my door!

from the placard:
This monument is dedicated to the lasting memory of Thomas Michael McGinn (1929 – 2007), the founder of Pistachio Tree Ranch. This little slice of New Mexico desert was Tom’s canvas to create his legacy. His tireless dedication to his dream made his farm the success it is today. Tom dreamed big, expected big, and accomplished big things. He would have said that this monument is not big enough! His legacy lives on.

Idea conceived by Timothy McGinn, son 2008. Built by Bar-M Construction Ernest Martinez.

  1. Simply Magnificent!

    I was alerted to this wonderful artwork by its making a brief appearance in Paolo Sorrentino’s film ‘This Must Be the Place’ (2011) – and by its significance as both my all-time favourite nut AND a brilliant example of surrealist sculpture.

    Blessings be upon Thomas Michael McGinn, Timothy McGinn, Ernest Martinez, “Road Runner″ (Bill), wendyvee, and pistachio-loving surrealism nuts everywhere!

    Peace-&-Love, Tim
