My Name Is Legion -- Invitation to Write #76

For Writers:

My name isn't dead common, and yet when I google "Bret Fuller," I find someone of that name that's a senior research consultant; another Bret Fuller earned a Ph.D. in Counseling, while a "Brett Fuller" is a senior pastor in Virginia.

Distance from home: About 75 miles.

Challenge #2: Taking my dog, Atticus.

Actually, Atticus is a good dog on a road trip, but the forecast indicated that it was going to get into the 90s. I wanted to leave early in the …
