I bring a pillow with me everywhere - coffee shops, planes, EVERYWHERE. If I forget it, my back hurts. Period. I do like the idea of the inflatable one, Sherrine - not so bulky. And maybe then I wouldn't get as many strange looks. Well, I probably still would, with my water bottle, sun hat, long sleeves, baggy pants (like Mr. Bogangles). But, as my husband says, "we're old....nobody cares what we look like!"
