Hi, I have a query regarding 'Having + past participle'. Can we use it to represent both present perfect tense and past perfect tense? E.g She had hung the laundry. She took a nap. Having hung the laundry, she took a nap. She has worked here. She knows the area well. Having worked here, she knows this area well.

Hello! Can you please write me the last Stephen phrase in this dialogue?

Hello LikTo,

The last thing Stephen says is:

I don't think Ashlie's going to forgive me for getting rid of her doll. Anyway, thanks for that, Rob. We'll see you next time.
