Hi James -
Why not send us an attached file the way you are writing it right
now?...Then I can attach some alternative choices. There are several ways
to write the puckered lips moving from side to side, and I am curious to
see what you have written first!

Thanks for the great question -

Hope your Nicaraguan guests are enjoying the snow in Maine!

Val ;-)
