Since I get no clear information about what the other men think of Lennie I should try to judge it from the written words. We also get to know that Lennie ia a quiet man, so the men don’t get no clear impression of him. But I think they understand that Lennie has some mental problems, and they’re afraid him. Another reason is that Lennie is strong and can’t control it. Most of the men are staying away from Lennie.

Lennie is a farmworker who’s dreaming about having he’s own farm with George. George is working at the same farm as Lennie does. But Lennie have a big problem, he’s strong but he can’t control his temper. That sometimes leads to killing animals, like in this story. Lennie killed the farmer’s puppy.

A pun on the fairytale ”The 7th Father In The House” http://www.ostlendingen.no/article/20071224/NYHETER/55427499/1015/NYHETER

Once opon a time there was a car who was on a trip. He was sick and tired, and he needed some rest and reparation. When he have droved for a very long time, he came to a car garage who was so nice that it could be a bus garage. -I’m looking forward to rest my motor here, said the car to himself.

Beside him it stood an old Ford from the 80’s who tried to get some gas out of an old gas pump. -Good evening,said the car. Can I barrow an garage for the night? – I’m not the boss here, drive in to my mate and ask him. He’s living in the first garage.

Than the car drove to an older, rusty Volvo who tried to start it’s own motor, without luck. The car asked the Volvo if he could barrow a garage for the night, but answer from the Volovo was the same. So he drove to an older and more rusty Golf, the asked the same question and got the same answer. – Drive further in to my mate, and ask him insteed.

The car did as the Golf said, and in the garage he saw ruined car who looked like it was bombed during the 2nd World War. -Good evening, can I barrow a garage for the night? – Don’t ask me, ask my mate. He’s living in the garage next to me. He drove to the next garage, who was a  smaler and more ugly garage. It looked like the car was from the 30’s, it could hardly speak. But he could speak as mutch as the car could hear that it was the same answer as from all the other cars. The car was tired now that he almost gave up, but he drove further in to a smaler and older than the past.

When he came into the garage he was shoced. It looked like it was the world’s first car or something. The car asked if he could barrow a garage for the night, but this time he got a different answer. He sould ask a car who hanged in a wire upon the roof in this garage. He saw around and then he saw an old tow truck hwo had light as big as floodlights. -Good evening, said the tired car. Can I barrow an garage for the night? -Yes, I think that will be allright came it down from the roof.

Than suddenly it came a table with oil,gas and all that the car needed. Than we was showed into an nice, luxuryus garage. The car have never been that released. He slept wel that night.
