Names can evoke memories

The east coast of America is about to be hit by tropical storm Andrea. This is not new. Tropical storms and hurricanes hit the U.S. all the time. The part that gets me is the name.

Andrea was one if my best friends growing up. Of our trio, she was the bravest and most advanced. I was older and couldn’t care less about my appearance; she pinned me to the ground and brushed my hair. I just did the math, it was 30 years ago. Yikes!!

All these memories, and more, come to mind when I hear her name. So what about you? Is there a name that evokes memories for you?
