When I told my Dad that I was getting some bees he said, 'can I get some' so we did our training together and share books and we ow have a growing colony each. He's only 100yds away so we do our inspections together.I like the sound of your dad Lambo, he sounds like mine. BTW, I am the first in my family to get the bee bug, but I think my dad is catching it from me, so it could go in reverse (he's 84).
My mother used to keep bees but she past 23 years ago and I wish I'd paid more attention. I have her smoker and an old veil of hers ....
I know he will read this and would love to take the oppertunaty to thank him (he knows Who he is lol)
