Celebrate Flag Day the Mike Rowe way. The “Dirty Jobs” host took to social media on Monday to show off his patriotic side in an epic photo.
Rowe has recently had a rough time after surgery. But he wasn’t going to let that stop him from showing off his American pride. The TV personality took to Instagram to share an awesome photo of himself wielding an American flag. If that doesn’t make you say Red, White, and Blue, then we don’t know what will.
Rowe posted the pic in response to a fan. The fan, Marvin Frank, wished the TV personality well on his recovery journey. But he wanted to know Rowe’s thoughts on Flag Day.
“Hey Mike – I know you’re recovering from surgery, but I’m wondering if you have any thoughts to share on Flag Day?”
In response, Rowe wrote, “Hi Marvin, Just the one.”
After-all, they say that pictures are sometimes worth a thousand words. Well, in this case, better make it a thousand and one. Flag Day is celebrated on June 14th. It marks the anniversary of the adoption of the American Flag in 1777.
Mike Rowe’s Journey to Wellness
Mike Rowe has also used social media to keep fans in the loop on his journey to wellness. He’s recently been recovering from a septoplasty. The TV personality had doctors work on his nose to correct airflow through his nostrils.
“Let me offer my sincere and heartfelt thanks for your many kind words and well wishes here in the wake of my open septoplasty,” Rowe said.
The TV personality went into more detail on how the surgery was done. And well, if you’re squeamish, Rowe will probably gross you out with the nitty-gritty details.
“This guy made an incision down here and a couple more incisions on the inside of each nostril,” Rowe continued. “He pulled my nose back and put my septum back where it belongs. He inserted two splints — one into each nostril — and sent me on my way.”
It’s a problem that affects numerous people, Rowe said. But after dealing with the issue for years, Rowe is finally glad to be able to breathe through his nose. In fact, he celebrated by taking a deep breath of air.
“I have since done some research and learned that over 40 percent of the people in this country are called ‘mouth breathers’,” Rowe continued. “They have the same problem I did — they couldn’t get air through their nose. Now, I’m breathing through each nostril for the first time in my life. It’s transformative.”
