Rule 126.02 requires the showing of good cause for an extension or limitation of time prescribed by the rules. To obtain relief from a failure to act within the time prescribed, it is necessary to establish that the failure was excusable under the circumstances. The appellate court may not extend or limit the time for filing the notice of appeal or for petitioning for review.
