The notice further informed Appellant that the motion for extension of time must contain a reasonable explanation for its failure to file the brief and a showing that Appellee had not suffered material injury thereby.

Appellant has not filed a motion for extension of time to file his brief. Consequently, the appeal is dismissed for want of prosecution pursuant to Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure 38.8(a)(1) and 42.3.(b).
