Hot or what?

When we leave Gecko or Murvi unattended we monitor the temperature with a max/min thermometer. When we visited Gecko in Aylesbury last time the maximum recorded was 106.5F which is 41.4 C for foreign types.Whilst discussing this with a fellow boater he recalled a rhyme his mother would recite when she took his temperature as a child. It went thus:
99 - Doing fine
100 - (he could not recall this one)  Any suggestions? *

101 - Just begun
102 - He'll pull through
103 - Wait and see
104 - Death's knocking at the door
105 - Barely alive
106 - Pushing up sticks
107 - Up in heaven

* how about - 100 degrees, on your knees
