Dirty Laundry Don’t Take No Doctor’s Orders is an accumulation of mostly humorous true stories from Doc’s lifetime of memories. He relates about 100 of them ranging in length from three or four lines to a full chapter. Most of the funny stories came from his medical practice, but others came from different settings.
Doc felt obliged to have one chapter of serious stories so no one would think there was not a serious (and even sad) side to his lifetime work. He also included a chapter on church humor to show at least the funny side of his Christian walk.
The title is an exact quote from a patient. She was an obsessive-compulsive whose main fixation was cleanliness. Those words served as her excuse for not following doctor’s orders.
