Examples of having in a Sentence

  1. Frank Gehrke:

    We are looking at probably not having the road open until maybe mid-July.

  3. Gilda Radner:

    I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end.

  4. Marco Rubio:

    He's learning how to spell, but he's flying around on 'Hair Force One' and tweeting. So here's the one tweet he put out. He put out a picture of having makeup put on me at the debate. Which is amazing to me that the guy with the worst spray tan in America is attacking me for putting on makeup. Donald Trump likes to sue people. He should sue whoever did that to his face with that.
