    The Hendersons are absolutely delusional and need counseling ,I will not be bullied by some hack estate planing attorney that obviously has no knowledge of the law . They are fixing to have a harassment complaint if they don’t just move along .

      Makes me wonder what the purpose is for these public rants and obviously trumped up accusations. I, and I am sure the majority reading this, find no basis in the Henderson’s claims and see nothing but a child throwing a tantrum because their team lost the election. …no doubt due to using the same tactics displayed here. Overall, this is all the evidence I need to conclude that they and the persons they support are very dangerous indeed.

      I mean even if, IF, I agreed with the Hendersons, nothing can stand between me and ribs from Red Barn, a half priced Diet Coke from Sonic, some La Hacienda cheese enchiladas or the salmon at Next.

      Doesn’t help their cause that they’re attacking the very best.

    Would this ‘following’ that these delusional sociopaths claim to have be the e-mail distribution lists that they’ve misappropriated from Home Owners Associations in Colleyville without the consent of the HOAs or the members of the lists? A bit like paying for Twitter followers (without actually paying anything)……

    I would think the Chamber of Commerce should be very concerned about any member, let alone a former board member and current gold level board member, instigating a boycott against four local businesses, three of which are fellow chamber members as well.

    What if anything will they do about this?

    I look forward to visiting each and every one of these fine businesses. This has gotten to be rather childish and needs to stop.

    Maybe after Donald is elected they will move to Canada.

    I have personally known Von Husband a few years before he opened Red Barn BBQ. He is an extremely kind man to everyone I know that know him and many more that are regular customers that drive out of the area to eat at Red Barn. I volunteered once to help with other like minded folks to fundraise for a local school teacher that was seriously ill and pregnant carrying her first child. Von donated all his food and earnings for one day to her and her husband to help offset the medical bills. The employees even donated their tips as well. He rescues dogs all over Texas weekly and monthly on his dime. He always takes a picture of the dog in his truck when leaving the kill shelters and posts them on Facebook as their freedom ride. I do not live or have my business in Colleyville any longer. I’m close though and enjoy Red Barn , Next and occasionally La Hacienda and the cherry limeades at Sonic. Mark Henderson got it right about the great taste of the foods he previously purchased from these establishments. Great food taste and politics will always be different for everyone. Supporting all businesses in our small communitys shows good will to the local tax base and us all as stewards of our community’s. Just saying the truth!
