Great postcard

Where I work there is one nurse who is a real outdoor-adventure lover. He's done all kinds of wilderness activities, ocean activities, you name it. Someone brought in a postcard for him that just cracked us all up. The photo on the postcard shows a forest scene with a pickup truck in the middle. In the bed of the pickup is a hospital bed with an IV hung on a stand near the head. There's a guy propped up on pillows in the hospital bed; a nurse, in starched white uniform dress and cap, stands beside him, fingers on his pulse and eyes on her watch. He's holding a rifle or shotgun across his knees. The caption is something like, "This could be the last season I get to go out hunting." Hospice IS a philosophy not a place, no?
