JB, welcome to our forum. What a wonderful gift your Grandpa has given to you, not the material gift, but the gift of the love of the honeybee. You have very obviously spent alot of time with these bees, and they have you under their spell. That is right, their spell, there is no other way to put it.
And then your Grandpa gave you the apparatus to begin to keep bees, beautiful and wonderful, a great beekeeper you will become, just like that Grandpa of yours. Ask all your questions, tell us of your experiences and stories, we all love to read and hear these things. Have a most beautiful and awesome day, Cindi
