Peter Falk’s mind is deteriorating

Peter Falk is probably best remembered for playing the one-eyed, shuffling detective, Columbo. Now he’s 81 and suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia. As a result, his daughter Catherine has filed legal papers seeking conservatorship of Peter. She claims Peter “requires full-time custodial care for his health and safety” and that he “can easily be deceived into transferring away property.” TMZ says Falk’s reps didn’t return their calls which is probably true since Falk’s reps are also 80 or 90 and they probably can’t hear the phone.

It sucks that Peter has Alzheimer’s. That and Huntington’s seem like two of the worst diseases to have. If I ever come down with one of those, I might as well embrace it. I’d slap waitresses’ asses and say that’s how we did it back in my day. They’ll tell me back in my day was the late 90’s to early 2000’s and was still not allowed. That’s when I’ll pretend to not understand what they’re saying and order some lemonade to quickly defuse the situation.

I would just like ot say that my Mother has Huntington’s which also means there is a 50% chance I will also have it, and I know that there are worse things out there then that. she lived a good life and while she is sick now…..She accepts she is sick and she is still happy. And you dont become insane….you are still aware of things such as it not being okay to grab a waitresses ass.
