Occasionally, I need a break and have to get out of LA. I love beautiful guys, but you still have to recharge your batteries occasionally. One of my friends suggested I relax at one of those working ranches in Arizona. I thought, what the hell, it would keep me in shape, and still provide a mental change of pace. I headed out the door with a suitcase and my trusty camera. I checked into the ranch house, and was taken to my room. The whole adventure promised to be low-key, and I wasn't sure about ranchers' hours. Dinner was at 5:30, and the place shut down about 9:00. I was awakened the next morning at 6:00 for my first roundup. That was usually the time I got home after a wild night out in LA. The ranch's brochure said you could work as hard as you wanted at this place, so I signed up for a roundup. I like riding big, muscular animals for hours at a time, so it seemed to be the thing I would most like to do. Turns out that it's really hard work, but it was worth it when I saw Buck the ranch hand. He eyed me with that smoldering look, as I saddled up. He led us out on the range for the next few hours. I was impressed by how well he stayed in great shape from all the work he did around the ranch. Several hours later, in the heat of the day, we rode back and unsaddled. I was surprised how worn out I was after the roundup, and I decided to go back to my room for a shower and a nap. I had just stepped out of the shower when there was a knock at my door. I wrapped the towel around me, and opened up to find Buck standing there. He must've cleaned up a lot faster than I did because he was already showered and dressed. He told me that he was a licensed massage therapist, and that providing massages to guests was an occasional duty. He said he figured I'd be a little sore after the roundup, and wanted to offer his services. He said the charge for a massage was usually extra, but he would give me a complimentary one. That was the only encouragement I needed to drop my towel and jump on the bed. The rest I am sure you can imagine! Buck was more than willing to come to LA and pose for me after that, Check out Buck in all his glory including a great toy set.
